Question:
How to configure the url_response profile to generate the alarm on the URL EventModel instead of URL's IP Address in CA Spectrum

When you create a simplest url_response profile like below, the alarm is generated as follow in CA UIM:
Source: <Robot IP address>
Hostname: <Robot hostname>

And in CA Spectrum you will have the following:
Source: <Robot hostname>
IP/Hostname: <IP Address of the WEB server that hosts the URL>

If you set the "Source override" in the Advanced TAB of url_response profile, the alarm is generated as follow in CA Spectrum:
Source: <Source override value>
IP/Hostname: <IP Address of the WEB server that hosts the URL>
