Opened: May 19, 2017
Severity: 3-Major

Symptoms

After upgrading from APM 11.x, if you have the following filter in your config, it is ignored: sys log-config filter /Common/HSL_Splunk { level notice message-id 01490143 publisher /Common/HSL_Splunk source accesscontrol } In this case, the admin user will no longer get HSL messages of type 01490143. The only thing the filter is able do is negative filtering: sys log-config filter /Common/HSL_Splunk { level notice message-id 01490143 publisher none source accesscontrol } In this case, specifying publisher 'none' still drops log entries, so you can use this filter to send everything except message-id 01490143, but the previous workflow of sending only message-id 01490143 no longer works.

Impact

The previous workflow of sending only message-id 01490143 no longer works.

Conditions

-- Upgrading from 11.x. -- the log-config filter in 11.x is configured to filter only for message-id 01490143, for example: sys log-config filter /Common/HSL_Splunk { level notice message-id 01490143 publisher /Common/HSL_Splunk source accesscontrol } sys log-config publisher /Common/HSL_Splunk { destinations { /Common/HSL_Splunk { } } } sys log-config destination remote-high-speed-log /Common/HSL_Splunk { pool-name /Common/HSL_Splunk protocol udp } -- Upgrading to 12.x or 13.x.

Workaround
