Issue/Introduction

We have setup our Analytics and were able to populate a number of dashboards.

However, there are certain jobs and workflow that when we filter as data source, the report returns no Data, even with the following setting:

collector.initial_collect_before_now.days=365

Cause

Unfortunately, it is not mentioned in the documentation but the collector name has to be aligned with the data source name.

Environment

Release : 12.3

Component : ANALYTICS ON PREMISE

Resolution

Workaround:

If your data source parameters are called: datasource.ae.* the corresponding collector name has to be collector.ae.*

So the correct parameter is:

collector.ae.initial_collect_before_now.days=365

This way you can differentiate between ae or ara collectors.
