Populating active lists with a custom date field

I have a flexconnector that is pulling in a custom date from a call ticketing system to the deviceCustomDate1 field in ESM. What I would like to do is write a rule that adds deviceCustomDate1 (which will always be a future date) into an active list. Unfortunatly, when I try to have this added to an active list, it can't aggregate on the deviceCustomDate1 field, or any other timestamp field for that matter.  Has anyone figured out a workaround?

Thanks,

-Rich

Re: Populating active lists with a custom date field

Sounds like it may not be formatted for that field, you can always map it to another field and insert it into the active list that way.

Re: Populating active lists with a custom date field

Hi there,

Unfortunately it's not possible to aggregate timestamps (hence the reason that you can't add it to an active list). There are 2 ways to go about this ....

1) If this is for display purposes only, then in the flex connector set the field to string and then in the AL create a field "date" or something similar and then assign a type of string. You'll then be able to populate this field (you'll need to use a fields based AL).

2) If you need to do some calc's on the date, or use it somehow, you can store the date in epoch. This time you'll need to select type "long" for the field type in the AL. In the flex connector declare the type as data, but assign it to customNumberX.

ArcSight's Reply,

Unfortunately, aggregation on "Device Custom Date1" is not  available.

However, there is a feature request open to support it.
The  TTP number is 58997. The target release date has not been announced yet.

Few links on the issue;
