Templates in Plextrac

Types of Templates in Plextrac

Plextrac looks for three separate types of templates when exporting your report. It looks for a Report Template, Export Template, and Field Template. The only two required templates are the Report Template and the Export Template.
Export Template: The export template will hold the Self Serve Single Scope template
Report Template: The Report Template will contain all the Report Custom Narratives and Report Custom Fields. Having this template setup correctly will allow you to have all the Report Custom Narratives and Report Custom Fields populated upon creation of the Report.
Findings Template: The Findings Template will contain all the Finding Custom Fields. Having this template setup correctly will allow Findings to automatically have Custom Fields added to them upon creation.

Templates in The Export Process

When you go to export your report, Plextrac must find which Jinja template to export the report data to. This is linked through a chain of templates.
First, Plextrac looks at which Report Template is attached to the report you are trying to export from. Then, it looks at which Export Template is selected in the Report Template. The Export Template holds a single Jinja Template and this is the template Plextrac then exports to.
This means, to export to the Self Serve Single Scope template, you will have to import the Jinja Template on the Export Template section in Plextrac, create a Report Template and attached the Export Template, and select the Report Template on the report you want to export from.
