Compliance Job - Default Notifications

The Default Notifications panel provides options for defining default notifications that are generated when a job completes. If you have set up notifications for a particular scheduled job, those notifications are generated instead of default notifications.

Default notifications can take the form of emails or SNMP traps. When a job completes, an SNMP trap is sent to a specified server, where it can be read using software that receives and interprets SNMP traps. Default notifications are sent when you run a job immediately (that is, you do not schedule the job) or a scheduled job completes but you have not set up email or SNMP notifications for that scheduled occurrence.

The Default Notifications panel also lets you define email messages and SNMP traps that are generated based on the results of the Compliance Job. You can send notifications when target components have compliant configurations, non-compliant configurations, or both.

Job Run Notifications

FieldDescription

Send email to

Lists email addresses of the accounts to notify when a job completes with the status that you specify. Separate multiple email addresses with semicolons, such as sysadmin@bmc.com;sysmgr@bmc.com. After entering email address information, check the statuses that cause an email to be generated. The statuses can be Success, Failed, or Aborted.

Send SNMP trap to

Provides name or IP address of the server to notify when the job completes. After entering server information, select the statuses that should cause an SNMP trap to be generated. The statuses can be Success, Failed, or Aborted.

BMC Server Automation provides a management information base (MIB) that describes its SNMP trap structure. You can use this MIB to create scripts that integrate traps into your trap collection system. The MIB is located on the Application Server host computer at installDirectory/Share/BladeLogic.mib.

List failed servers in email notification

Indicates that email notifications should list all servers on which a job has failed.

Compliance Results Notifications

FieldDescription
Send email to

Lists email addresses of the accounts to notify if compliance results. Separate multiple email addresses with semicolons, such as sysadmin@bmc.com;sysmgr@bmc.com. Notification can occur when results are consistent, inconsistent, or both.

Append compliance results to email

Indicates emailed notifications should include compliance results.

Limit email body size

Limits the size of email that is generated by appending compliance results. Enter the maximum size, in kilobytes, in the text box. The default value is 1000 KB.

Send SNMP trap to

Provides name or IP address of the server to notify about compliance results. After entering server information, select the results that should cause an SNMP trap to be generated. For example, if you select Inconsistent and a Compliance Job indicates that two components are inconsistent, an SNMP trap is sent.
