Rapid 7 has some documentation about the scheduled reports within Insight IDR
From my understanding. You are able to create a report schedule that triggers as desired. I think the option you were thinking of “Email the dashboard owner when the new report is generated”, doesn’t actually email them a copy of the report, but rather let them know that a new report was generated and is available within the IDR platform.
From there, you can click on “Import and export archive” on the left hand side, and you’ll see the dashboard exports. You can then download the report that you’d like and send it via email.
It’s basically just a way so that you can capture regularly intervals of data in a dashboard format (i.e. see the dashboard for the last 7 days, triggering every 7 days…etc.)
Hope that makes sense
