The implementation of Applications is optional in XpoLog Center, and is used mainly for data enrichment.
An application is a logical container of other elements that exist in XpoLog Center. The application definition includes a set of static parameters that describe the application, and a set of the members that compose the application, such as folders, logs, accounts, reports, or anything else that is configured in XpoLog.
The Applications console enables administrators to enrich the data with logical groupings by defining the applications that participate in the log. These applications can include data from multiple logs or servers. The Applications console presents all the applications defined in XpoLog and enables administrators to create new ones, and modify and delete existing applications.
The implementation of applications has the following advantages:
- Search can be run at the application level. For example: error in application.<appl name>
- In Analytics, can see analysis according to applications.
- Security can be managed at the application level. Users who enter an application can only view the members under that application.
