Best-Practice - Setting up your views in OverOps - Application Views Follow

 

What is it?

If Application naming was done properly when setting up Naming Conventions, OverOps will automatically create views for these applications.  These are called automatic application views.

 

Why use it?

  • Having application names set will allow logical grouping of events into the applications that emitted them.
  • Notification routing can be easily setup for the teams that manage these applications

How to enable?

  • Recommended approach!
    If the “Application Name” is properly setup on the agent during the
    naming conventions setup then you can setup OverOps to create the view automatically.
    • This feature is available by default if initially setup with Version 4.28.0 and newer.
      If system was initially setup prior to Version 4.28.0 please enable this feature.
      Administrator privileges required.

  • If custom application naming needs to be setup, this will have to be done manually by creating a view, saving that view , and creating any notification routing that is required. 
    For details check out our OverOps Tech-Talk Video about Custom Views.

Pros

  • One click access to events that have specific meaning for application owners and developers
  • Noise reduction by notifying only for events from specific applications

Cons

  • None
