Exporting sessions

Depending on whether you have selected the Enable video capture auditing option for an installation, you might have different options for exporting session data to a file. The options available also depend on whether the session activity was captured on an audited Windows computer or an audited UNIX computer.

To view your export options, select the session and right-click or open the session in the session player, then click the File menu. Depending on the session type or installation settings, you might see the following export options:

Export to Command List

Exports the time stamp and UNIX shell commands as comma separated values (csv) in a text file. The file contains the same information as displayed in the Indexed Command List for UNIX sessions.

Export to Event List

Exports the time stamp, application name, and other details as separated values (csv) in a text file. The file contains the same information as displayed in the Indexed Event List for Windows sessions.

Copy Session URI

Copies the URI of the selected session to the clipboard. You can then paste the URI into a web browser to open the session.

Check Session Data Integrity

Checks the session for any possible data tampering. If the session is fine, a message displays that the data integrity check passed. If the session has been tampered with, a message displays with details of what data was affected.

Export to TXT

Saves the selected UNIX session(s) or UNIX session(s) and user input (stdin) as a plain text file.

If you selected multiple sessions, a message displays that asks you if you want to export the multiple sessions to a single file. Click Yes to save the sessions in a single file or No to save the sessions in separate files.

If you select the Export Session with User Inputs option, user input is noted with a line number of K or “keyboard” input.

Export Detailed Executions

Saves the session in HTML, PDF, CSV, or XML format if you have enabled advanced monitoring and the session includes any detailed executions.

Export to CDF

Saves the selected Windows session in Computable Document Format. You can then open the CDF file with the session player (daplayer filename.cdf). Because the session player reads the session information directly from the CDF file, you don’t need to specify an installation name or connect to a database to replay the session.

Export to WMV

Saves the selected session in Microsoft Windows Media Video format. You can use Windows Media Player or other media players to play back sessions in this format. However, sessions exported to WMV files do not include the summary information such as the user name, the computer name, start and end times, or the list of events captured.
