Using the base adapters
You can configure the adapters with Grid Manager for specific grids and can then enable them on one or more peers on the grid. Any adapter that is used in a process must be enabled on at least one peer on a grid. The configuration is referenced when adapters are called within processes.
You can create processes within BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio. Actor adapters are used within workflow processes to perform specific functions and to interface with external applications. Schedules can be created to trigger the execution of specific processes.
You can create rules within BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio to evaluate events generated by monitor adapters. A rule contains event criteria and specifies a process to be executed when the rule is satisfied (true).
You can create a module using BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio. A module contains processes, schedules, and rules. Modules are exported from BMC Atrium Orchestrator Development Studio, within snapshots, to a grid's library for deployment and activation in Grid Manager.
On activation of a module on a grid, schedules and rules are enabled. Schedules trigger processes at defined intervals and rules evaluate events generated by monitor adapters, triggering designated processes for events that evaluate to true for a rule. A single event can trigger multiple processes if multiple rules evaluate to true for that event.
