Overwrite App-default EVAL in props.conf with FieldAlias

Hello *

how can i overwrite the default eval definition for field app in props.conf?

default/props.conf

 

...
EVAL-app = "Blue Coat ProxySG"
...

 

I try to overwrite this field with following in local/props.conf

 

...
FIELDALIAS-app             = x_bluecoat_application_name as app
...

 

We use a distributed Environment so i changed this in SH and HF app. But no change to the results.

What am i doing wrong?

Hi @Mockjin 

As per precedence EVAL executes after FIELDALIAS hence though you created a alias as 'app' same is being overridden with EVAL-* expression in default/ dir.

Can you try this in local/props.conf and deploy the changes to SH and restart.

EVAL-app = x_bluecoat_application_name
