Feature Short description
New incident reporting APIs based on REST The new Incident Reporting REST API provides easier implementation and expanded functionality compared to the original Incident Reporting and Update API, which was based on SOAP.
See “New incident reporting APIs based on REST” on page 23.

New incident reporting APIs based on REST
Data Loss Prevention 15.7 makes available a set of public RESTful APIs for incident reporting.
You can use the REST APIs to integrate incident data with other applications to provide dynamic reporting, create a custom incident remediation process, or support business processes that rely on DLP incidents.
The new REST APIs replace the capabilities of the Incident Reporting and Update API, which was based on SOAP technology. REST APIs are generally better performing and easier to use that SOAP-based APIs. While the SOAP-based APIs for incident reporting are still supported, new integrations requiring custom incident reporting should leverage theREST-based APIs. The Incident Reporting and Update SOAP APIs are deprecated in Data Loss Prevention 15.7.
For more information about the incident reporting REST APIs, refer to the DLP 15.7 REST API documentation.

Hello Alex,

I'm migrating a python script from using the SOAP API to using the REST API.
I'm struggling because the documentation doesn't provide requests examples and response examples.

Do you have any Symantec DLP REST client implementation example ?

Have you seen


Theres a property you can fill

So you need to find out which (columnIndex) it is first.
