To extract data from a report Transaction/Report, a user must configure the Transaction name and/or Report Name along with Report selection variant information. Only the active configurations are considered. The following steps need to be performed to set up the Filter configuration:
Open ALV_REPORTS filter using menu option below (Administrator->Metric filters->More->ALV Reports Filter)
Maintain the Transaction, Report Name along with Variant Name. The interval represents the extraction frequency in seconds for each record. As an example data from MB59 should be extracted every hour ( as the interval value is 3600 Sec). The configuration can be activated and deactivated using the checkbox.
In SAP, Execute the the transaction with corresponding variants that you want to maintain in Filter Configuration to extract the data. For example, below is the output of transaction MB59 executed with the selection variant that is also used in the Filter configuration. This data will be extracted and send to the Splunk system
