Event graphs

Event graphs are used to show events that occurred in one product during a process. They give a view of the processing cycle of events sent to the same tracked object.

Generate an event graph in Axway Sentinel Monitoring

To achieve this in API Gateway, perform the following steps:

  1. Configure the Sentinel server connection in API Gateway. See Configure Axway Sentinel server.
  2. Use the Axway Sentinel Event filter to send an event with two different event attributes called UserObjectId and UserParentId:
  3. Attribute name Description

    UserParentId

    Unique string that identifies the parent of the relevant tracked event

    UserObjectId

    Unique string that identifies the relevant tracked event

  4. For more information, see Send event to Axway Sentinel.

The following figure shows the filter configuration.

Set values for UserParentId and UserObjectId in the filter

Result in Axway Sentinel Monitoring

The following figure shows the resulting event graph in Axway Sentinel Monitoring.
