Specify event locations

The Moogsoft Events API schema includes a locations field that defines the physical or virtual location where an event occurred.

When defining locations, it is good practice to use the same conventions for all events. For example, if you want to define virtual locations, use the same event field (such as data_center) and the same location names used by your cloud vendor.

The events schema includes the following location fields:

  • Physical locations (string) — street, building, city, state_or_province, country, postcode, rack, aisle, u_position

  • Physical location (integer) — suite, floor

  • geo_coordinates — The and geo_coordinates.long fields are strings. Use decimal degrees (DD) format, for example “41.40338”, “2.17403"

  • Virtual or cloud locations (string) — region, data_center, availability_zone
