Can an OnCommand Workflow Automation workflow be triggered automatically based off of a DFM event? or is the whole tool more geared towards just simplifying tasks that take multiple steps?
Looking for a way that we might could automatically trigger certain workflows that we are building.
Neither Oncommand WFA nor DFM have any built-in mechanism to do it. But you can certainly make one and in more than one possible way. You need to make use of the facts that:
As Sinhaa said, you can use the SNMP traps to trigger workflows using WFA RESTful Api.
BTW what version of OCUM are you using ? If its 5.x you can even call a script in the context of an alarm which is tied to an event.
This script in turn can call the WFA workflow using RestFul Api.
BTW could you explain more on what kind of trigger are you looking for ?
