When using an Advanced Data Source, export capabilities can be disabled via security policies at the data source level (no one can export) or at a user level (particular users can't export). See Security Group Management for more information.

 

Export All Entries (.rdm)

 

Export all entries in a .rdm file that can be imported into any Remote Desktop Manager for Mac data source. You can also include the credentials in this export format and secure your file with a master key.

 

Information48x48

By default the credentials are NOT included. It's critical to check the Credentials option in order for the exported data to include the credentials.

Export Selection (.rdm)

 

Export the selected session in a .rdm file that can be imported into any Remote Desktop Manager for Mac data source. You can also include the credentials in this export format and secure your file with a master key.

 

Export Entry as Remote Desktop File (.rdp)

 

Export the selected entry in a .rdp file to easily use it outside Remote Desktop Manager for Mac.

 

Export Special (.csv)

 

Export entries using the .csv format file. For security reasons the .csv file will be contained within a password encrypted zip file. This type of security can be hacked using brute force attacks, it should be used only when the zip file is under your exclusive control.

 

Information48x48

Please note that the csv columns will vary depending on entry types being exported.  This makes it the wrong format if ever you want to import the data back in Remote Desktop Manager.  Use this only to migrate to another system.

 

Export Special (.html)

 

Export all entries within a AES-256 to encrypt self contained html file. See Export Html Encrypted topic for more information.

 

Export Special (.xml)

 

Because it brought confusion to our user base, this export format has been converted to perform the exact same export as the "Export all entries" but sets the file extension to .xml instead.
