Reporting on SharePoint is an important organization-wide requirement based on the different functional aspects of SharePoint governance and administration. A comprehensive SharePoint Reporting should broadly cover the following report categories:
SharePoint Audit and Compliance Reports
These reports should address the regulatory compliance needs (such as SOX, HIPAA etc.). The reports should carry information about all critical user actions in SharePoint that are to be audited and recorded for compliance reporting. The reports must provide detailed information about the actions that have occurred in the SharePoint farm – Who performed What, Where and When.
SharePoint Security Reports
The SharePoint security reports should carry all information related to SharePoint Security and must provide a clear picture of how security is currently configured – such as permissions / rights granted for users & groups on various objects – for farms, Site collections, Sites, Lists etc. The reports must tell you who has access to what in SharePoint at the site collection, site, list, and list item levels.
Share Point Usage Reports
These reports must capture how your SharePoint environment is currently being used. The reports must track all user activity related to the usage of SharePoint. The reports must show user activity and how the SharePoint farm is currently used by the user community.
SharePoint Configuration Reports
These reports should carry information about your SharePoint Configuration in order to fully document the details of your SharePoint infrastructure. The reports must show details on how SharePoint settings are configured at Web application, Site Collection, Web and List levels.
SharePoint Policy Reports
Has SharePoint been configured and used as per your organizational policies? SharePoint Reports on policy must show how the business, data & information policy settings are configured in the SharePoint farm.
