Storing the application event details to generate usage report

After you define application events and event statistics, you can configure the Publish Event element. This configuration ensures that BMC Helix Platform stores the event data required to derive statistics and reports for that event. You can generate the application usage reports in  Getting started Open link

For example, if you want to derive statistics for the number of successful auto-approvals in a given month, you must configure the Publish Event element in the business process in which you have defined the auto-approval flow. 

Before you begin

If you want to store data of events other than the out-of-the-box events, you must create the event and event statistics definition. For more information, see Tracking application events to generate usage reports.

To configure the Publish Event element in a process or rule

  1. Log in to BMC Helix Innovation Studio.
  2. On the Workspace tab, click the application in which you defined the event and event statistics.
  3. On the Processes tab, select the process in which you want to track an event. 
    For example, the Auto approval process.
  4. From the palette, drag the Publish Event element to the canvas. 
  5. On the Element Properties tab, in Label, enter a name for the publish event action. 
    For example, enter the name—Publish auto approval event data.
  6. In the INPUT MAP section, from the Event Definition name list, select the event that you want to publish. 
    For example, select the Auto approval event.
  7. (Optional) If you want to add data from optional fields when publishing the event details, click Add/ Remove Input Map Fields and select the optional fields. 
  8. If you do not have a default value for the fields, click Click to build an expression and define a value. 
  9. Click Save

To complete the process for generating application usage reports, after configuring the Publish Event element, return to the  Tracking events to generate chatbot usage reports Open link .
