Exporting a Report
PlexTrac reports can be shared between tenants to enable cross-team collaboration through importing and exporting.
For example, an external red team of one tenant may want to export a report and share it with an internal blue team client that manages its own instance of PlexTrac.
The following export file options exist for reports:
- Microsoft Word (.doc): A .doc file can contain various elements such as text, images, tables, charts, and formatting options like font styles, sizes, and colors. It supports rich text formatting, allowing users to customize the appearance of their documents.
- Markdown (.md): Markdown is a lightweight markup language that allows authoring in plain text that is then converted into formatted content using plain text characters to denote elements like headings, lists, emphasis (bold or italic), links, images, code blocks, etc.
- Comma-separated values (.csv): A .csv file is a plain text file format commonly used for storing and exchanging tabular data that allows data to be organized in rows and columns, similar to a spreadsheet. Each line typically represents a row of data, and commas separate the values within the row. Each value corresponds to a specific column, allowing the data to be structured in a tabular format.
- Extensible Markup Language (.xml): An .xml file is a plain text file that uses tags to define elements and their hierarchical relationships.
- PlexTrac/JSON (.ptrac): A .ptrac file provides more structure and ability to maintain relational data similar to JSON and XML than a CSV. Images are stored using Base64, a binary-to-text encoding scheme that allows binary data to be represented as a sequence of ASCII characters.
