Modified on: Mon, 29 Jan, 2024 at 9:12 AM

From within your graph page, click Import/Export from the top ribbon menu to access the Generate Report buttonThe Generate Report button in Maltego creates a PDF report that contains information about the content of the current graph in a single document. These reports can end up being very long. (i.e. a 30-Entity graph can easily generate a 20-page report)

Clicking Generate Report will open a save dialog where the filename and location can be provided:

The Radio button options:

The Very high export memory usage option (introduced in v4.6.0) allows for faster export of large graphs but may cause OutOfMemoryError exceptions depending on the size of the graph and checkbox options chosen. 

To increase the maximum memory available to Maltego, go to App menu > Options > Java Options, and increase the memory slider.

The Current view only graph image bounds option, will clip the graph image exported to the first page of the PDF to the current portion of the graph that is visible.

The Include checkbox options:

Entity images: Includes the images of the Entities (displayed on the graph) in the report.

Images from Entity Display Info: Some transforms return images in the “Snippets” section (see Detail View below) of the Entity. This option will render those images in the PDF report.

  • Empty Entity Properties: Include the property of an Entity, even if the value is currently empty, such as for the “Text” property below.

  • User Properties: Some additional “user” properties are generated during a collaboration session to indicate created and modified events on Entities during graph interaction. Include these properties in the report when checked. Disabled by default.

In a Maltego report, the following will be included:

  • Image of the whole graph or current view, depending on the Graph image bounds option chosen.
  • Top 10 Entities: list of Entities ranked by the following features:
    1. Incoming Links
    2. Outgoing Links
    3. Total Links
  • Entities by Type: List of Entities categorized by their type.
  • Entity details (shown below):  Lists each Entity and includes information from the property view and detail view depending on the checkbox selections. The image below shows an example of one item from the Entity detail list:
