Input Tables of the Basic Connector

Introduction

This section contains an overview of the attributes for each of the input tables of the Basic Connector. For each attribute, the name, a description, the usage in AppOne, and an indication of whether the attribute is mandatory is displayed.

The Usage in AppOne column lists how the attribute is used in AppOne:

  • Selectors are used on dashboards to specify how the metrics are split up.
  • User filters can be added by end-users to further analyze the data.
  • Process graph indicates that the attribute is used to draw a process graph.
  • Details dashboard indicates that the attribute is used in the details dashboards.

Cases and events

BasicConnector-SingleFile

The BasicConnector-SingleFile expects the data for cases and events both available in one input file which will be loaded into the Cases_events_Input table.

Below is a description of the attributes in the Cases_events_Input table.
