Top Benefits

  • Automate the process of reporting application errors that aren't otherwise logging to Splunk
  • Proactively identify and respond to platform issues before customers/stakeholders report problems

Tasks

  • Read input Excel file
  • Gets error from system and push errors to Splunk
  • Generate error log from Splunk

The objective of this bot is to automate the process of generating error log files for different types of applications to track down errors. The included bot should automatically generate an Excel file and send the file to the requesting individual.

The bot will automatically check for the application log files in the specified folder and generate the error report for all the files by using the Splunk application as opposed to having to install and leverage the Splunk forwarder.

Key Use Case: This Bot will be useful for faster restoration of applications back to normal when applications that don't otherwise report to Splunk can have their logs/errors tracked and reported into the Splunk interface.
