Exporting Data from the DCE Desktop Client

NOTE: Certain panes within the DCE Desktop Client have an export option.

An example of how to export all devices from the DCE Desktop Client:

1) Log into the DCE Desktop Client.

2) Open the Monitoring perspective.

3) Within the Device Group pane, click on All Devices.
NOTE: You can select a different group to export just those devices.
NOTE: You can search for devices using the search bar within the Device View pane to filter what devices to export.

4) In the upper-right corner of the device view pane, select the folder with the green arrow on it.
NOTE: Selecting the drop down will allow for export as a CSV or TXT file.
NOTE: Only the columns that are currently being displayed will be exported.

5) Save the file and open in a program that can open the type of file you chose to save.
