Currently, OA can only accepts numeric value as metrics from various sources like XML metrics , Log metrics policy and DOES NOT accept String datatype to be stored in OA database. Our requirement is to use BVD (2019.05) to plot business data (mainly strings) using COSO. But now it's road block to send strings into COSO. As per latest white paper of 2019.05, in COSO, we can send data vi OA only which is the recommended approach for OBM platform.
In addition, we have lot of customer who want to show their third party data in BVD as reporting purpose with string data. So please allow Operation Agent 12.x to store string as metrics via XML metrics or Log metrics Policy, etc.
We have lot of customer who want to show their third party data in BVD as reporting purpose. But that data has string like CI name or other details. And we have no choice but store that data first into OA and then only it would go to COSO . But OA is not storing string value as metrics.
We don't find any workaround till now for this.
In current, situation, MF tell to customer that they can show any data to BVD and use BVD as reporting purpose. But first data has to come in COSO for BVD reporting and COSO can fetch or accept data from OA only as per documentation. And OA is not able to store string metrics that is totally unacceptable.
OA agent should receive the string as metrics value via XML metrics, log file policy, etc.
