This topic explains how to configure monitoring for a custom API-Based Events source.

To configure the Event Monitor tool to monitor a custom API-based event source:

  1. Double-click the Event Monitor tool to open up the tool configuration panel.
  2. In the Event Source tab, select Custom API-Based Events Source as the platform, then configure the following options:
    1. In the Connection area, specify your connection settings.
    2. In the Event Retrieval area, specify the event retrieval pattern you want to use (polling at a specified time interval, polling after each test execution, or subscribing to an event producer).
    3. In the User Code area, specify the location of your custom event monitoring application or scripts. See Extensibility API Patterns for details.
  3. In the Options tab, modify settings as needed.
