I want to scrape captured http packets for particular data. For example, consider a packet contains an itemID and ItemStatus.

I want a quick method of searching and extracting the timestamp, itemID, and ItemStatus from all the captured packets into a csv file for analysis (or whatever).

Is there a way to do this?

Thanks, David

The HTTP protocol has no itemID and itemStatus fields. You'll have to be more specific what these items are.

Are you looking for url's that contain certain values?
You can use a display filter to select the packets, that contain a those values:
http contains "itemid" || http contains "itemstatus"
In Packet Details right-click on Request URI and choose "Apply as Column" from the context menu.
Next select File | Export | File...
Save as type: select CSV
Packet Range: select Displayed
Add a file name and hit OK

You can read more about exporting data in the wireshark User's Guide.
