XML Export to specified directory as Smart Response?

Hi all,

I'm currently using DLP 11.5.

I'm trying to export incident data as XML to a given directory or path as a Smart Response, but am not sure where to begin or if this is possible.

The steps to execute this manually would be as follows:

  1. Start at incident list view without any summarization applied.
  2. Select incidents in question.
  3. Under "incident actions" > "Export Selected: XML" 
  4. Save to hard-coded location, for example, "C:\SampleDirectory\"

Is it possible to execute this as a Smart Response in DLP 11.5? 

Does 11.6 the capability to design something that would meet the above requirements?

-Thanks in advance!

So, you mean: you need to export the incident as XML file at the time each incident generated?

Instead of at the time each incident is generated, I need to be able to export incident detail for a desired set of incidents (even if one at a time) on demand.

Does that make sense?  Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to clear up any questions.

on second thought, it would not be a deal breaker if this was at the point of generation for all violations.  The key requirement is being able to export these violations as XML.

You can use Web Archive to export the incidents (include the incidents details) for a desired set of incidents.

But, there is no method to export the incident detail during each incident generated.

Dan, you can use Web Archive as Yang Zhang said, But if you want to export reports by schedule you may use Reporting API to write own application.

Hi Yang,

Thanks for the tip - I will look into the web archive capabilities, but the problem with web archive (system>incidentdata>web archive) is that I am unable to set a schedule for this to occur regularly (daily, 2x per day, etc)

Creating Archive...   

Export output directory: D:\Vontu\Protect\archive\
Also - when I try to set up a scheduled distribution, it requires email address.
I think scheduled distribution could potentially work if the CSV could be dropped into a local directory.

Hi Artem,

Do you happen to know of any publicly available examples of the reporting API's?
