Elastic search and Kibana (Optional)

Elastic search and Kibana are optional. If you want to install them, then download set-up of version mentioned in “Orchestrator Server” table above and use below ELK Guide .pdf for installation steps of only Elastic search and Kibana.

Before installing Elastic Search insert “Path to log files” value as below highlighted
in “elasticsearch.yml” file in “Paths” section:

# Paths

# Path to directory where to store the data (separate
multiple locations by comma):

path.data: C:\ElasticData

# Path to log files:

path.logs: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\UiPath\Logs

Note: Remember to remove # (hash) at the start of that
line as above. # (hash) gets treated as commented code which will not be
considered. Path may differ on your system.

Kibana Configuration

Edit Orchestrator Web.config file for “robotElasticBuffer” section for
highlighted fields as below:

xsi:type=”BufferingWrapper” flushTimeout=”5000″>

<target
xsi:type=”ElasticSearch” name=”robotElastic” uri=”http://MachineName:9200″ index=”UiPath${event-properties:item=indexName}-${date:format=yyyy.MM}”
documentType=”logEvent” includeAllProperties=”true”
layout=”${machinename} ${message}”
excludedProperties=”agentSessionId,tenantId,organizationUnitId,indexName”
/>     

 

Restart the IIS.
