Advanced System Reporter Architecture

  • Scanners are defined under /sitecore/system/Modules/ASR/Configuration/Scanners
    • Used to get the objects shown in the report
    • Can be hard-coded or parameterized types
    • QueryScanner class, for example, is used to run a particular Sitecore Query
  • Filters are used to filter the objects returned by the scanners
