Version 1.1.52

  • This release includes a new Business Division field called: "biz_division". The field is optional and available in all the 8 Enrichment principles and elsewhere. It is important to run the Chargeback App Lookup Backup Job once manually to implement this new field. The field if empty will assume the value of biz_unit. This step is important, so you don't experience this error message: "Error in 'lookup' command: Cannot find the destination field", after running the job, allow 10 minutes for the bundle replication to occur.
  • New detailed explanation was added in the configuration chapter under the "Setup entitlement and B-Unit allocation tables" heading. To access the table, click on "5. Enrichment Tables" and open the panel "1. Splunk Entitlements Table Management".
  • You can now split usage by app. A new perc_ownership field can now be used to accomplish that. Here is an example of how to use it:

If you would like to split usage originating from the search app into 5 business units, click on "5. Enrichment Tables", then open "2. Business Units / Departments Enrichment Priority Logic - Foundation Tables" and then click the gear icon under "4. App 2 B-Unit Table" to open the App 2 B-Unit table and create 5 rows using this example and allocate the % ownership for each business unit totaling to exactly 100%:

host_name app_name biz_unit biz_division biz_dep perc_ownership
