Is there an easy documentation for building customized analytics?

New Contributor

Hello all,

I am looking for a workshop or tutorial guide on creating own Analytics. For example, I would like to create an analytic that identifies the download of certain files by their names.

Are there any materials for this?

A good place where to start could be looking at some of the built-in Analytics that use the GPDownloadEvent Sensor, for example SuspiciousFileDownload or FlashDownloadNotSignedByAdobe.

There is also an example in this post

Files Downloaded from the Internet
Sensor Type: GPDownloadEvent
true == true

The GPDownloadEvent provides visibility into any file that gets downloaded on the system using Apple’s APIs.
