Each report export template has three main sections:

  1. Setup Code

  2. Cover Page and Table of Contents

  3. Report Body

Setup Code

This section begins at the document's start and continues to the first cover page option. This section provides the user the ability to:

  • Configure formatting options, including defining colors for table headers, background severity colors, and severity text colors (see each template's "Defining Color Codes" page for more information).

  • Specify display options, allowing customization of how the title page, summary table, and detailed findings sections are presented (see each template's "Selecting Display Options" page for more information).

  • Incorporate pre-built functions that can be invoked elsewhere in the document (see each template's "Using Pre-Built Functions" page for more information).

Users can modify formatting and display options, but changing or creating additional pre-built functions requires understanding the Jinja2 language and the PlexTrac data structure.

Cover Page and Table of Contents

This section offers multiple pre-built cover page options for users to choose from. Users can make adjustments to graphics and static content as needed. Advanced users may further enhance the content by incorporating additional data extracted from PlexTrac through augmentations to the setup code.

Report Body

This section encompasses all content following the Cover Page and Table of Contents. It is the primary area where pre-built functions are invoked to format the exported data per user preferences. Users can include static content, such as section headings or paragraphs, that remain consistent across different reports. Standard divisions within the Report Body often include sections such as the Executive Summary, Methodology, Findings Summary, Detailed Findings, and Appendixes.
