Tagging tool

EventLog Analyzer's tagging tool bookmarks your logs and complex search queries using hashes, helping you view searches across different sources. You can also add troubleshooting tips or notes along with your tag.

How to create a tag?

To create a tag, go to Search tab and follow the below steps:

  1. Specify all the search criteria which you wish to associate with your new tag and click Search.
  2. Click on the tag icon on the right side of any log entry in the displayed search result.
  3. Fill the required details in the Add Tag pop-up:
    • Provide the name of the tag.
    • Select the tag criteria from the predefined list. The list is based on the fields available in the search result. If it does not have the field you are looking for, then add those fields to the search results using the column selector at the top-right corner of the search results.
    • Provide troubleshooting tips/notes for the tag, if any.
    • Specify the user name. By default, the current user name (logged on to the EventLog Analyzer web client), is displayed.
  4. Click Apply to save the tag.

How to edit a tag

  1. Navigate to Settings > Admin settings > Tags.
  2. Click the edit icon next to the tag.
  3. Modify the tag criteria.
Note: You can also edit tags on the search results page by clicking the edit icon below the tag name.

How to perform log search using a tag

You can search for tags by their name, prefixed with #, in the search query text box.

Note: Typing # provides you with a list of all created tags for ease of selection.

How to delete a tag

  1. Navigate to Settings > Admin settings > Tags.
  2. Click on the delete icon beside the tag name in the tag table. Click Yes in the pop-up.
  • The tag name and the notes added to the tag should contain only alphanumeric characters.
  • Tag criteria can be edited only by the user who created the tag and EventLog Analyzer users with Administrative privilege.
  • Any user of EventLog Analyzer can add a note to a tag, irrespective of the creator of the tag.
