Customizing the XSLT Definition File

Lync Server 2013
 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-01

The Compliance service records and archives data related to each Lync Server 2013, Persistent Chat Server conversation, including when a participant:

  • Joins a Persistent Chat room
  • Leaves a chat room
  • Posts a message
  • Views chat history
  • Uploads a file
  • Downloads a file

The data is delivered as XML, which you can transform into the format that best fits your organization, by using an XSLT definition file. This topic describes the XML file that the Compliance service creates. It also provides samples of XSLT definition and output files.

The Compliance service output is categorized by conversation (the Conversation element) and then by message (the Messages element), as shown in the following code sample.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> 
<Conversations xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <Conversation>
    <Channel uri="ma-chan://litwareinc.com/300" name="ma-chan://litwareinc.com/300" islogged="" /> 
    <!--FirstMessage goes here --!>
    <Messages> 
      <!—Messages go here--!>
    </Messages>
    <StartTimeUTC since1970="1212610540953" string="2008-06-04T20:15:40.9535482Z" long="633482073409535482" /> 
    <EndTimeUTC since1970="1212610602532" string="2008-06-04T20:16:42.5324614Z" long="633482074025324614" /> 
  </Conversation>
</Conversations>

A Conversation element contains four elements (Channel, FirstMessage, StartTimeUTC, and EndTimeUTC). The Channel element contains the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the chat room, and the FirstMessage element describes the first message in the Messages element. The StartTimeUTC and EndTimeUTC elements provide the start and end times for the conversation, as shown in the following code sample.

<<FirstMessage type="JOIN" content="" id="0">
      <Sender UserName="TestUser kazuto" id="10" email="kazuto@litwareinc.com" internal="true" uri="kazuto@litwareinc.com" /> 
      <DateTimeUTC since1970="1212610540953" string="2008-06-04T20:15:40.9535482Z" long="633482073409535482" /> 
</FirstMessage>

A Message element contains two elements (Sender and DateTimeUTC) and three attributes (Type, Content, and ID). The Sender element represents the user who sends the message, and the DateTimeUTC element represents when an event occurs, as shown in the following code sample.

<Message type="JOIN" content="" id="0">
  <Sender UserName="TestUser kazuto" id="10" email="kazuto@litwareinc.com" internal="true" uri="kazuto@litwareinc.com" /> 
  <DateTimeUTC since1970="1206211842612" string="2008-03-22T18:50:42.6127374Z" long="633418086426127374" /> 
</Message>

The following table describes the message attributes Type, Content, and ID.

Messages Element Attributes

Required

Optional

Each Sender element contains five attributes: the user name, ID, email, internal, and URI. These attributes are described in the following table.
