Cisco Works Custom Report

Unanswered Question

Is there a way that I can create a report in Cisco Works RME that allows me to run an adhoc command.

ie: I want to report on the following for all my selected devices:


     show inventory | include SX|LX|LH


The output on an individual switch gives me:


Switch# show inventory | include SX|LX|LH

NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/3", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/4", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/5", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/6", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/3", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/4", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/5", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/6", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet5/1", DESCR: "1000BaseLH"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet5/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

I have gone through all the custom template inventory groups and attributes, but non of them have the DESCR information.
The Interface:Name rule gives me the GigabitEthernet#/# information. 
Is that the right "thing" that I want for this report?
Does anyone know how to do this?  Or at least give me a clue where to investigate further
Any help gratefully received.
Currently running the following:

CiscoWorks Common  Services3.3.0

Campus Manager5.2.1

Thanks

Thanks for the info yjdabear.  I'd like to have the output in a report rather than having to click on each individual device to see the results - we have hundreds of devices that we are wanting this information from.

Is there any way get the information into a report?


eg:

Switch 1


NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/3", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/4", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/5", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/6", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/3", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/4", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/5", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet4/6", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"

NAME: "GigabitEthernet5/1", DESCR: "1000BaseLH"

Switch 2
NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet1/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/1", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/2", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/3", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/4", DESCR: "1000BaseSX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/5", DESCR: "1000BaseLX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet2/6", DESCR: "1000BaseLX"
NAME: "GigabitEthernet3/1", DESCR: "1000BaseLH"
Thanks
Kind regards

I thought it's possible to grab the aggregate output of all the devices in the GUI, but maybe not.


Alternatively, perhaps the CLI equivalent could display all the results. Specifically:


     cwcli netshow jobresults -u Username -p Password -id "Job ID 1" , "Job ID 2" , "Job ID 3"
