Introducing Quest Reporter : Creating Custom Report Templates and Favorites : Adding Attributes for Customized Report Templates : Adding Registry Attributes

Adding Registry Attributes
Using Reporter you can collect the following Registry information:
For example, you can browse to HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion and gather the value ProductName.
For example, you can browse to HKLM\Software\Microsoft and gather the list of subkeys under that key.
You can add multivalued registry attributes. However, there is no data returned when you generate a report template on these attributes.
To add registry attributes
Select Start | All Programs | Quest Software | Quest Management Suite | Reporter | Configure.
Click the Extend Reporter Attributes tab.
Click Add to add registry attributes, then click Next.
For a given value, a single value from all sibling subkeys is collected.
For a given key, the names and values of each key are collected.
Click Next.
Click Finish.
If you are collecting a registry value, you can include the selected key only or all the siblings of the selected key.
You can report on this information by creating a computer-based report template.
