This page outlines the steps that you need to undertake to add a new artifact or attribute to TSK/Autopsy. Follow these before making a pull request.

  • TSK:
    • C++ Framework Code:
      • Add to TSK_ARTIFACT_TYPE or TSK_ATTRIBUTE_TYPE enums in framework/tsk/framework/services/TskBlackboard.h
      • Update the appropriate map in framework/tsk/framework/services/TskBlackboard.cpp
    • Java Code:
      • Add Artifacts to:
        • bindings/java/src/org/sleuthkit/datamodel/
      • Add Attributes to:
        • bindings/java/src/org/sleuthkit/datamodel/
        • Update BlackboardAttribute.getDisplayString() if the attribute needs any special display formatting.
      • For either, you will need to update the bundle file with the strings:
        • bindings/java/src/org/sleuthkit/datamodel/
  • Autopsy:
    • Update report code to make artifact visible in table:
      • Core/src/org/sleuthkit/autopsy/report/
        • getArtifactTableColumnHeaders()
        • getOrderedRowDataAsStrings()
    • (Optional) For new artifacts - create a custom icon for the HTML report
      • Core/src/org/sleuthkit/autopsy/report/
      • Icons stored in Core/src/org/sleuthkit/autopsy/report/images
