Tags - Auto tagging from a csv

New Member

Looking to see if this is possible or if there are any other alternatives.

Goal: I am using tags as a search filter for role access and I am looking for an automated way to manage this. Servers may be decommissioned or new servers may pop up so I want to automate as much as possible. An example would be providing an application owners access to ONLY OS logs, web server logs, etc to their application only.

Background: We have indexes for windows logs, unix logs, web server logs, etc, so we cannot have separate indexes for applications. We have an automated job to produce a csv from our CMDB that tells us what application is mapped to which server, so how can we use that to auto-tag?

No trivial way to auto-tag that I can think of. I think an alternate approach would be to use lookups to associate other fields with those events.

Although, if you have a criteria for determining a tag association within a csv, then you can use that same info to define eventtypes and therefore tags...

Feel free to post a scrubbed example and we get make this question more tangible.

I would recommend to use either automatic lookups or define an event types with proper tags to have an "automatic tagging"
