Overview#

The DirXML can Generate Custom IDM Event that can be sent via XDAS.

ID#

ID of the event. The provided value must result in an integer in the range of 1000-1999 when parsed by using the parseInt method of java.lang.Integer. Supports variable expansion.

Level of the event XDAS Severity#

Proper setting of the XDAS Severity may determine if the event is ignored or a response is required.

The Generate Event action Strings:#

These are the ones we have found worth populating along with suggested source for the value:

String NameDescriptionSuggested Source
targetThis field captures the event target.Set to sourceDN() Be sure to set target-type
target-typeInteger specifying a predefined format for the target. Predefined values for target-type are currently:
0 = None
1 = Slash Notation
2 = Dot Notation
3 = LDAP Notation

text3The value of this field depends upon the event. It can contain any text string up to 255 characters.Identify the Issue
valueThe value of this field depends upon the event. It can contain any numeric value up to 32 bits.Dependent on your situation
value2The value of this field depends upon the event. It can contain any numeric value up to 32 bits.Dependent on your situation
value3The value of this field depends upon the event. It can contain any numeric value up to 32 bits.Dependent on your situation
dataThe value of this field depends upon the event. The default size of this field is 3072 charactersUse values of attributes or other informational data that could be lost.
data-typeSpecifies the data-type of the value in the data tag.

data field#

You can configure the size of this field in the LogMaxBigData value in logevent.cfg. This value does not set the size of the Data field, but it does set the maximum size that the Platform Agent can log. For more information, see Section 5.0, Installing and Configuring the Platform Agent.

The maximum size of the Data field is defined by the database where the data is logged, so the size varies for each database that is used. If the size of the Data field logged by the Platform Agent exceeds the maximum size allowed by the database, the channel driver truncates the data in the Data field.

If an event has more data than can be stored in the String and Numeric value fields, it is possible to store up to 3 KB of binary data in the Data field.

XDAS Correlation IDs for IDM#

XDAS Correlation IDs for IDM are used to identify related events from DirXML and EDirectory

Recommended Event IDs#

The provided value, for Generate Custom IDM Event, must result in an integer in the range of 1000-1999 when parsed by using the parseInt method of java.lang.Integer.
