This idea is related with this post:

Consolidating job return files in a single location


It would be very useful to have software job output as a usable field in DSM Reporter. That way, it would be easier to analyze what has happened during a big software deployment.


Right now, you can only get that information opening manually every single job or using custom scripts not embeddable in reports.

The main objective of this enhancement is being able to compare the output of software jobs and/or send them to third parties. A link to the data wouldn't solve the problem.


Perhaps the output could be cropped to a maximum size, and accompanied by the forementioned link when not all the output is shown. An excell cell can contain 32K characters, so a hard limit below that ammount can be imposed in the DSM reports.

Since software job output is freeform text and can be quite large, I don't see how this can reasonably be added as a field in the reporter. However, a LINK to the output could easily be included
