11.2 Creating Custom COUNTER Reports

Custom COUNTER reports can be created as long as the general layout for COUNTER reports is followed. Custom reports MUST be given an identifier and a name in the format of {namespace}:{report ID} and {namespace}:{report name}. An example of a custom report could be:




EBSCOhost:Link-out Report 1

It is recommended to make custom reports available both from the administrative/reporting site and via the COUNTER_SUSHI API and to include them in the response for the /reports path in the COUNTER_SUSHI API (see Section 8).
