Notification Engine plug-in

The name of the Notification Engine plug-in is BMC.FILTERAPI.NOE. Applications that rely on Configuration Item (CI) and relationship data stored in BMC CMDB sometimes needs to know whether CIs and relationships have been added, changed, or deleted.

For example, you might provide an email service using multiple servers. Any change to these servers could impact the email service. Consuming applications, such as an email service monitoring application, might have the logic to identify the potential impact of changes to the servers, but they first must be notified of the changes to those servers.

The Notification Engine enables you to define the context in which CIs and relationships are considered to be important, and enables applications to be notified whenever a relevant change is made to those CIs and relationships.

Plug-in type

The Notification Engine plug-in is a Java plug-in that runs as a part of the Java plug-in server and is named BMC.FILTERAPI.NOE.
