Index

Functional "bucket" to group events together.

Custom indexes can be created by end users.

Flows & distribution rules within flows allow to segregate & distribute events to specific indexes.

Two permanent special "system" indexes exist :

  • undelivered : receives all events that were not distributed to a custom index.
  • ingestion errors : receives all errors encountered during an events ingestion.

Searching is allowed on a single or multiple indexes.

Flow

End-user configured object that represents how events are going to be prepared & grouped into indexes before they can be searched.

Flows can be configured by users with the admin role.

The header attribute of an event, the axway-target-flow, determines which flow will be used to process the event.

A flow can contain several steps including:

  • events formatting
  • distribution rules
  • transformation
  • indexing
