Increase the number of incidents exported as CSV

Data Loss Prevention Enforce


You try to export a report with a large number of incidents in CSV format, and you receive an error that the number of incidents exceeds the maximum limit.


By default, the system only displays up to 10,000 incidents when "Show All" is selected in the UI. This is required to export an incident report, so this limit also controls the number of incidents that can be exported.

In the Enforce Server, locate the file

Windows: <drive>:\Program Files\Symantec\DataLossPrevention\EnforceServer\<version>\Protect\config\

Linux:  /opt/Symantec/DataLossPrevention/EnforceServer/<version>/Protect/config/

To increase the limit, change the following value in the file: 

#The maximum number of incidents that may be displayed when clicking show all on an incident list page

com.vontu.manager.maxshowallincidents = 10000 

Change the value after the = to the number of incidents that you need to export, or greater.  Note that increasing the value will impose a greater load on the Enforce server during export, and should be done with caution and tested with small increments.

After changing the value, save the file and restart the Enforce services in the proper order.
