Correlate traces to track Business Workflows 🔗

Configure Business Workflow rules to group logically-related traces by services or global tags. Business Workflows generate Monitoring and Troubleshooting MetricSets for traces that fit Business Workflow rules. Monitor performance indicators on transactions with dashboards and alerts. You can also filter your Troubleshooting view to display only transactions for specific Business Workflows.

You must be an administrator to configure Business Workflows.

Follow these steps to configure Business Workflow rules to track related traces in Splunk APM. For more information about configuring and managing rules, see Configure Business Workflow rules. Check out an example configuration here or see the use case of Configure Business Workflows to track business KPIs.
