Response Description

A PropertyDiscoveryProfile as created within the system.

  • id - Integer - The ID of the property discovery profile.

  • property_discovery_type - String - The type of property discovery for this profile (JSON or NONE).

  • optimized - Boolean - Indicates whether this profile creates custom properties as optimized.

  • active - Boolean - Indicates whether this profile is enabled and actively being used.

  • threshold - Integer - How many events should be handling creating no custom-properties before this profile becomes inactive.

  • log_source_type_id - Integer - The ID of a log-source-type that this profile corresponds to (This is the basic filter property, it must be set for the profile to be used).

  • create_for_normalized - Boolean - If false, the property-discovery-engine will NOT create custom properties for any fields that match the name of a normalized system property. If true, it creates the properties, but with identifying tag on the name; for example a field that is called 'username' creates a custom-property that is named 'username_custom'.
