Example Business Workflow configuration 🔗

Suppose you want to identify every trace that goes through service.example. To do this, create a Business Workflow. The following example creates a service rule for service.example that creates workflows based on endpoints for the service. To follow along in the app, you must be an administrator.

  1. Go to Organization Settings > Business Workflow Configuration.

  2. Click New Rule.

  3. Select Service for the Rule Type.

  4. Select service.example for the Target Service.

  5. Confirm that the Source of Workflow Name is set to Matched service:endpoint. If it is not, select Matched service:endpoint from the drop-down menu.

  6. Click Create to save your changes and create the rule.

  7. View the list of rules to confirm that the rule you just created is enabled. If it is not, use the toggle next to the rule name to enable the rule.

  8. To evaluate a trace against the rule set and generate a name for the workflow, copy and paste a trace ID into the Rule Tester field.

  9. By default, the newest rule has the highest priority. This means Splunk APM applies the new rule before applying any other rules. If there are other rules you want to apply first, adjust the priority of the new rule.

  10. Click Save Changes to apply the new rule and priority list.
