Getting Information About a Transaction

Once you have defined a transaction, you can use detail area tabs to get information about policies, conditions, and properties applied to a transaction. You can also display the transaction's profile. In some cases, you can modify the definition or status of elements shown in a tab.

Getting Profile Information

Use the Profile tab of the Transaction view to see a map of the transaction and to see its definition.

The Profile tab provides essentially the same information you would see if you displayed the transaction definition by choosing Edit TxName from the Modify menu. Selecting the Profile tab instead, makes it easy to switch to other tabs or views, prevents your making unintentional changes, and provides three additional pieces of information:

  • the date the definition was last modified,

  • any user attributes defined for the transaction

  • the transaction identifier, which is sometimes needed to identify the transaction in CLI commands.

Getting Policy Information

Use the Policies tab to view information about policies associated with a transaction.

By default, the tab shows information about applied policies. You can use the filter control to view changed policies, disabled policies, pending policies, rejected policies and unapplied policies.

The name of the applied policy is shown in a tree view in the Name column. Expanding the policy node shows the following information:

  • Policy Status Details lists any issues arising from the application of the policy.

  • Monitored Object Type specifies the targets to which the policy is applied.

  • Location specifies the address of a target endpoint

  • Management Intermediary specifies the Business Transaction Management agent that is applying the policy.

Double clicking the policy name in the Policy tab, opens a new window that you can use to view alert, profile, and target information for the selected policy.

Getting and Changing Condition Definitions

Use the Condition tab for the Transaction view, to display the conditions you have defined for a transaction. This tab allows you to do the following:

  • View and change the status of fault monitoring: enabled or disabled.

  • View condition definitions and status

  • Use the Edit drop down list, shown for each condition, to modify the condition definition, to duplicate the condition, or to delete the condition.

Getting Property Information

Use the Properties tab for the Transaction view, to display a list of all the properties defined for messages included in a given transaction. In addition to listing the properties, the tab shows information about the following:

  • The service and operation for which the property is defined

  • The phase (request/response) of the operation

  • The data type of the property value

  • Whether the value is deemed sensitive

  • Whether it is mapped to a consumer (denoted by a human icon on the left) and what consumer mapped attribute it is associated with.

  • A description if you have supplied one when you created the property.

An Edit drop down list for each property listed allows you to modify, duplicate, or delete the property definition.
