Export Table Information to .CSV format

It would be a nice feature to be able to export data out of tables to .csv for further manipulation.  In my particular case I am trying to get a list of all rogue access points (7000+) to further manipulate.  Either that or the ability to show "All" instead of the 500 device limit.

Hello Harry,
Thanks for the suggestion.  Would appreciate if you can share how do you intend to use this exported information and what are your reporting needs around this? 

Also is this a one-time export of data or a periodic data and if so what are your use-cases there as well.

Thanks

Hi Praveen

Many of our data/video projectors have wireless capabilities.  Some HP printers do as well.  In many instances these were either deployed or end users turned on these wireless "features" without knowing the ramifications.  These show up as rogue APs.

I do not have an easy way to list, continuously, all of the SSIDs displayed.  I would like be able to export and then manipulate the data.

I would think in any instance where you have more than 3-4 pages of 500 "whatevers" would lend itself to exporting - clients, APs, etc.  I would also think if you needed this information it would probably be needed more than once.

That's about all I can think of now.  If I come up with anything else I will make note of it.

I do appreciate Aerohive's willingness to listen to their customers and evolve the product around our needs.  Your quick response to my request is evidence.

Thanks.

Thanks Harry. Your use-case makes a lot of sense.

What do you think about a capability that provided a PDF report listing rogues APs / clients / SSIDs (and some other details around that rogue entity such as time detected etc) for a selected location, would that help satisfy your need. T

Thanks

Hi Praveen -

The granularity of specific places would be nice but I really would need a list of everything enterprise wide too.  If it is pushed out in a .PDF and I can cut and paste it into Excel then that would be great.

Ultimately, in whatever form it is created in, I am going to want to manipulate the data.  It just seems to me a .CSV or .XLS spreadsheet - heck, comma delimited .TXT file should be fairly easy to do.

But then I'm not the one who has to change the programming in the Hive Manager :-)

Thanks,

Harry

The graphs give me the info I need as long as I don't export them but I need to work with the data as well.  It would be nice not to have to copy each number over into a spreadsheet manually.  

After two years has a solution for this come about?

Thanks Harris for that input.
