This python script is intended to be used to automatically generate use case / correlation rule documentation in Markdown format for the McAfee Enterprise Sceurity Manager (ESM). It accepts a XML file that has been exported from the correlation rule editor of the ESM, converts its contents to Markdown format and writes it into a new file. If you need any other format, you might want to use pandoc to convert to e.g. pdf, docx or HTML.


This tool requires lxml (https://github.com/lxml/lxml). On Debian you can install it with "sudo apt-get install python3-lxml"
