UIM - url_response - use robot name for device identification


Article ID: 225196

DX Unified Infrastructure Management (Nimsoft / UIM)


We would like alarms and metrics for url_response probe to use robot name for device identification. 

How can we achieve this? 


Probe limitation. url_response 4.47 and earlier do not support this option. 


Release : 20.3

Component : UIM LOGMON


A url_response build with an enhanced key is available. 

With url_response 4.47_T1, the probe supports a new key, if this key is enabled the metrics and alarm from the profile will have the robot dev_id. 


1. Deactivate the url_response

2. Deploy the url_response probe version 4.47_T1

3. Open Raw configure

4. Add the following key to the setup section: 

useRobotNameForDeviceIdentification = yes




After enabling this key the ci_metric_id sent by the probe will be the one from the robot. 



Please ensure you only activate useRobotNameForDeviceIdentifcation.

For this key to work, you have to deactive keys useHostNameForDeviceIdentification and UseNoHostNameResolve which they should be set to = no.
