Sorry, you said CSV, not excel…

start = event.source.parent.getComponent('Date Range').startDate
end = event.source.parent.getComponent('Date Range').endDate
journal = system.alarm.queryJournal(startDate=start, endDate=end).getDataset()
csv = system.dataset.toCSV(journal)

filePath = system.file.saveFile("mycsv.csv", "csv", "CSV File")

if filePath:
    system.file.writeFile(filePath, csv)

Thank you so much for your help.

hi Jonathan, its working but when i export the alarm journal only “EventId”, “Source”, “DisplayPath”, “EventTime”, “EventState”, “Priority”, “IsSystemEvent” are coming. how can i manage these columns. i also want to export “Label”.

Thanks in advance.

hi did you solve this problem? this is my current problem right now

Hi Daren,
As I understand you want to see data that is not directly in the table like me. So I used the following code for this;

from com.inductiveautomation.ignition.common.config import BasicProperty
eventTime = BasicProperty("eventTime", BasicProperty().getType())
start = event.source.parent.getComponent('Alarm Journal').startDate
end = event.source.parent.getComponent('Alarm Journal').endDate
alarms = system.alarm.queryJournal(startDate=start, endDate=end)
headers = ["EventTime", "Label", "DiplayPath", "SourcePath","Priority"]
data = []

for alarm in alarms:
	data.append([alarm.get(eventTime),alarm.getLabel(), alarm.getDisplayPath(), alarm.getSource(), alarm.getPriority()])	

val = system.dataset.toDataSet(headers, data)

filePath = system.dataset.exportExcel("AlarmJournal", 1, val)
if filePath != None:
   system.net.openURL("file://"+filePath)

the important point here is “system.alarm.queryJournal()”

Hi to All,

I want to export a csv file through a component of BUTTON from the Alarm Journal, I did it using this script:
dataset = event.source.parent.getComponent(‘Alarm Journal’).getAlarms()
file = system.date.now() **
path = system.dataset.exportCSV(“data.csv”, 1, dataset)
if path != None:
** system.net.openURL(“file://”+path)

…unfortunately, I’m not satisfied because the result (csv file) is lack of information, the event time is incomplete, I want to include the Date and there are missing columns when it exported. How can I solve this one?

Any ideas?
