Running custom script in Unified Manger 6.2

Is there a way to execute a custome script in Unified Manager when an Alert is triggered? Can a this be accomplished thru Workflow Automation (WFA)? if so, where can I find more details about executing scripts in Unified Manager?

Re: Running custom script in Unified Manger 6.2

OCUM 6.2 has 2 flavours of installation. 

1.OVA vAPP

2.Linux RPM installer on RedHat.

 

I Know for sure with the vAPP you cant do anything of the sort you are looking for as its a lockdown VM.

with Linux installer you should be able to, but not sure if OCUM offers cli to do some programming.

 

Are you trying to trigger, a WFA workflow based on a OCUM alert ? I dont think that is availabe today

That's exactly what I am trying to do, kickoff a WFA workflow when a UM Alert is triggered. Do you know if this functionality will be added in future releases?

Re: Running custom script in Unified Manger 6.2

Ideally should be, but not sure, when it would make it in the product. But shouldnt take a long time though.

 

Could you give some more details on what you are looking for how you plan to trigger the workflow, etc ?

Original requirement is to run a custom perl script whenever a defined Alert is triggered. The default notification mechanism in UM are email and SNMP notification. There is no option to run a custom script as a notification method. As an alternative, it would be nice to be able to leverage the WFA/UM integration to trigger a workflow when a specific Alert is generated.
