DS_EVENT_DOMAIN_PREDICATES.csv

The DS_EVENT_DOMAIN_PREDICATES.csv file contains information necessary to create event domain predicates in xMatters. Use this file in conjunction with the DS_PREDICATE_JOIN_VALUES.csv, which defines list predicate values. For more information, see DS_PREDICATE_JOIN_VALUES.csv .

The combined values of the EVENT_DOMAIN_KEY and PREDICATE_NAME fields must be unique. In other words, you can have multiple predicates with the same name as long as they are for different event domains.

Before you can use this file to import event domain predicates, you must ensure that the corresponding event domains have already been created in xMatters.

Version

DS_EVENT_DOMAIN_PREDICATES.csv is available in version 1.3 and later of the ZipSync archive. The version of the ZipSync archive is defined by the autoDataSyncVersion entry of the manifest.xml file. For more information, see The manifest.xml file.
