Overview


Purpose

We have updated the Vulnerabilities & Assets Export feature with new and improved export functionality. In order to support larger export files and more fields, such as Asset Tags, we've improved the "Export" functionality, and also made it work asynchronously.


New capabilities

  • Better capacity to export (up to several GB export files)

  • All the relevant Asset-Tags information is included in the export

  • You can trigger the export request and exit the system. You will receive an email notification once the file is ready to download.

  • You can trigger several export requests at the same time. For example, one for Vulnerabilities and one for Assets, or for several Business groups one after the other.

  • Faster processing for larger exports

  • The download request can be retried in case of network failure or interruption.


Availability

This feature is in the rollout and will be available to all customers within the next couple of weeks (May 1 - May 14, 2022).


How to export

To export, go to the Vulnerabilities or Assets page, filter to narrow down the results (if relevant), and click on Export.

Noticeable behavior change

When you click the "Export" button, you will see a message that confirms we got your request and are processing it. At this point, you can continue your work inside the Vulcan platform or outside the platform, we will notify you by email once the export file is ready (also through a notification inside the Vulcan platform if you are still logged in).


FAQ

Is it secure?

The new export mechanism has been designed with security considerations in mind.
The export file is placed in a secure location, and available only for 24 hours. After 24 hours, the file expires. The file becomes completely inaccessible (permanently deleted) after 24-48 hours.

Who can access and use the link to the export file?

Only the requesting user can use the link. Also, to use the export link you must authenticate through the Vulcan platform.

Can I see other users’ notifications of “export file ready”?

In the notification center, all users can see all "export file-ready" notifications issued by other users, as well as the name of the requester. However, the files can be accessed and opened only by the requester.
