Programmatically manage exports with the Google Vault API

With this launch, you can use the Google Vault API to:

create an export—send a request to export messages and files that match your criteria.
list exports—retrieve the status of all exports associated with a matter.
get an export—retrieve the status of an export anytime, and if the export is completed, download that export using the standard Cloud Storage API.
delete an export—remove an export from a matter when it’s no longer needed.
For more information, check out the Google Vault API Developers Guide.
