The DW Spectrum Web Portal, sometimes referred to as the “DW Cloud Portal”, is an online management tool that can be accessed through a web browser to connect with systems registered to a relevant DW Cloud account. Among the various functions of the web portal, DW Spectrum System Owners or Administrators can use the DW Spectrum Web Portal to generate a JSON file that provides a copy of the system alerts log. The JSON file can then be shared with relevant support personnel for their own viewing without needing to log in to DW Cloud themselves.
This article will outline how to acquire the Health Report log from the DW Spectrum Web Portal and how to apply it in such a way to allow support personnel to view the JSON file without requiring a DW Cloud login.
**NOTE: A DW Cloud account is required for this setup. To create a new DW Cloud account, please refer to DW Cloud Account Setup.
To acquire the Health Report Log through the DW Spectrum Web Portal, follow the directions below.
**NOTE: If you are trying to apply the JSON file that can be acquired through the DW Spectrum Web Portal, you may skip to the next section (Applying the JSON File for Health Report Log).
Once you have connected with the web portal, click the “Log In” button and enter your DW Cloud login credentials. The user profile associated with the account must be registered as an Administrator role or as the system Owner.
Select the “Information” tab, then click on the “Download Full Report” link.
You will use this JSON file in the next section to share the log with other users.
If you have already acquired the JSON file from a DW Spectrum System and would like to view its contents without logging into the DW Spectrum Web Portal, follow the direction below.
Once you have connected with the web portal, click the “Download DW Spectrum” link at the bottom of the page.
Click the “Browser for Report File” button and select the JSON file for upload. Click the “Open” button to upload the file to the DW Spectrum Web Portal.
Alternatively, you may drag and drop the JSON file from its downloaded location into the “Drag & drop report anywhere” area.
Be aware that the DW Spectrum Web Portal will not automatically update the displaying log. A new JSON file will need to be generated by the DW Spectrum System Administrator or Owner to provide updated logs.
If you would like to load another JSON file for viewing, click the “Import Another Report” link.
