Issue/Introduction

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

How can we achieve this? 

Cause

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

Environment

Release : 20.3

Component : UIM LOGMON

Resolution

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. 

Instructions:

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. 

 

NOTE:

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.
