  • Send CSV data - Select this option to include a CSV file with the query results in the issue created. For Vulnerabilities, the first row shows the vulnerability information, and the next rows show the linked devices.

Additional CSV Settings

  1. Split by asset entities - Select to create a CSV file where each asset on a device is shown as a separate row. This separates each asset as the 'expand' option in the application. It separates each asset by its entity. For example, you will be able to know which values were fetched from each adapter connection.

    a. If supplied, each value on a device or user is shown as a separate row.
    b. If not supplied all values on a device are in the same cell on the CSV file.

  2. Export CSV delimiter to use for multi-value fields (default: Export CSV delimiter to use for multi-value fields field under the System Settings section in the GUI Settings) - Specify a delimiter to separate between values within the same field of an exported CSV file, otherwise the delimiter defined in Export CSV delimiter to use for multi-value fields is used.

  3. Maximum rows (default: 1048500) - Specify the maximum number of rows to be included in the CSV file. When you set a value here the generated CSV file will include the top x rows, based on the specified values. Otherwise, the generated CSV file will include the default maximum rows, set as 1048500.

  4. Include associated devices (only for Vulnerabilities and Software) - For Software and Vulnerabilities queries. Toggle on this option to include the associated devices with the preferred hostname as a predefined field for each software or vulnerability. When you create a CSV file with associated devices (for Vulnerabilities or Software), if the exported query results are larger than the value set under Maximum rows (or the default value of 1048500), an appropriate notice is displayed at the end of the CSV file.

  5. Device fields - This option is available for Software and Vulnerabilities. Select the device fields to add. By default Preferred Host Name is selected. Click add to select more fields. At least one field must be selected. Click the bin icon to remove a device field.
