To allow for easier public access to specific data, PACER users and attorney e-filers may use RSS feeds for notification of docketed events in civil and criminal matters. Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a type of XML that allows Internet browsers and other feed readers to display information from a website. Users can subscribe to RSS feeds so they will be notified every time content is updated on a particular site.

The court’s RSS feed includes the last 24 hours worth of publicly available docketed events in civil and criminal cases. Restricted and sealed information is NOT available.

A standard RSS reader is not provided with CM/ECF. Users must acquire, install, and configure third-party RSS reader software before the feature can be used in CM/ECF.

There are two options for accessing CM/ECF RSS feeds for the District of Hawaii:

  1. Subscribing to CM/ECF RSS Feeds: Users may subscribe by clicking the following link: CM/ECF RSS Feed; this link will launch the current feed in the user’s web browser. Each browser provides an option to subscribe to the feed.
  2. Accessing from CM/ECF or PACER: The RSS feed may be accessed by going to the ECF home page > then click the Court Information link > then click on the RSS feed link.

PACER Access Required


To view any documents or docket sheets displayed in the CM/ECF RSS feed, users will be prompted to log in with a PACER account and will incur associated PACER fees when viewing a document. To obtain a PACER account or for more information, please visit
