Question:

Can the new APM 10.3 WebView feature "Transaction Trace Action" be defined for metric alerts other than those related to CEM/Business Transactions? The 10.3 wiki implies it is a CEM only feature.

 

Answer:

The new "Transaction Trace Action" WebView feature can be used for any agent metric grouping that an alert can be defined for and was specifically designed to avoid the limitation of needing to have a CEM Defect/Incident to trigger a Transaction Trace.

It can also be used specifically for Business Transactions if a Business Segment metric node is defined in the metric grouping and the option "Trace only Business Transactions" is selected.

The 10.3 wiki documentation will be corrected.
