Updates in the 2.7.30.01 patch
2.7.30.01 patch includes the following updates:
PATROL for Log Management enables you to specify the number of lines to search a match string. Depending on the value that you specify in the Number of lines in log entry field, the KM displays the number of lines, when a match is found.
With the 2.7.30.01 patch, the number of lines configured in the Number of lines in log entry field is appended to the custom event message in the TrueSight console. Earlier, this feature was available in the PATROL consoles only. See, Last Strings Matched by the Template Regular Expression (LOGMatchString) attribute.
To enable this feature, set the value of /PMG/CONFIG/<instance name>/appendLogEntryLinesToCustomEvent pconfig variable to 1.
The KM now provides an option to replace the special characters (Comma ( , ), double quotation marks ( " ), and single quotation marks ( ' )) in the custom event message with tags. Earlier, the KM deleted the special characters from the message.
To use this feature, set the /PMG/CONFIG/replaceAnnotationSpecialChars variable to 1.
The substitution strings cannot be specified, they are predefined:
Original character Replaced string Comma ( , ) BMC_COMMA double quotation marks ( " ) BMC_DQUOTE single quotation marks ( ' ) BMC_QUOTE
For example A,B will be replaced by ABMC_COMMAB.
