## Configure the Observe LAM

The Observe LAM posts data to Moogsoft AIOps when an event occurs in Moogsoft Observe.

You can install a basic Observe integration via the UI. See Observe for integration steps.

Configure the Observe LAM if you want to configure custom properties, set up high availability or configure advanced options that are not available in the UI integration.

# Before You Begin

Before you set up your Observe LAM, ensure you have met the following requirements:

• If you are using an on-prem version of Moogsoft AIOps, you have configured it with a valid SSL certificate.
• Your Observe system can make requests to external endpoints over port 443.

{
configuration_file				: "$MOOGSOFT_HOME/config/logging/custom.log.json" } # Configure for High Availability Configure the Observe LAM for high availability if required. See Integrations HA Configuration for details. # Configure LAMbot Processing The Observe LAMbot processes and filters events before sending them to the Message Bus. You can customize or bypass this processing if required. You can also load JavaScript files into the LAMbot and execute them. See LAMbot Configuration for more information. An example Observe LAM filter configuration is shown below . filter: { presend: "ObserveLam.js", modules: [ "CommonUtils.js" ] } # Map LAM Properties You can configure custom mappings in the Observe LAMbot. See Introduction to Integrations information for details. By default, Observe event properties map to Moogsoft AIOps Observe LAM properties: Observe Event Property Observe LAM Event Property  agent  $agent
