    • Click Format and select the format that you want the search results to be exported in.
    • Optional. In the File Name field, you can type a name for the export file where the event data will be stored. If you do not specify a file name, a file is created using the search job ID as the file name. The search job ID is the UNIX time when the search was run. For example 1463687468_7.csv.
    • Optional. In the Number of Results field, you can specify the number of results that you want to export. If you do not specify a number, all of the events are exported. For example, if you specify 500 in the Number of Results field, only the first 500 results returned from your search are exported.
