The message parsers configuration helps you manage all message parsers which have been permanently associated with a log parser. Message parsers which have been associated with a log parser will be automatically applied every time the log parser configuration is used.
Message parsers can only be created by the Parse Message Filter.
The safety parsers grid shows all message parsers which are currently associated with a log parser configuration. These message parsers will be applied automatically whenever the log parser configuration is used.
The Add command will display a list of current message parsers which are not yet associated with a log parser configuration. Selecting and saving one of these message parsers will permanently associate the message parser with the target log file configuration.
Message parsers can only be created through the Parse Message Filter. They cannot be created with the Add command.
The Parse Message Filter has a 'Always Apply' option which allows you to automatically associate the new message parser with the target log file's parser configuration. This option is selected by default. Therefore, LogViewPlus defaults to adding message parsers to the target log file configuration. This may appear to make the Add command redundant.
However, if you choose to ignore the default behavior by deselecting the 'Always Apply' option, you will create a message parser which will not be saved with the target log file configuration. The Add command is used to add only these known but not yet saved message parsers.
Removes the association between the selected message parser and the log parser configuration. The selected message parser will no longer be applied automatically when the log parser is used.
