This topic provides information about integrating with BMC TrueSight Presentation Server to collect and analyze event data.
At a high level, this integration helps you perform the following functions:
To see all the features (or capabilities) supported with this integration, see the compatibility matrix at Integrating.
This topic contains the following information:
The high-level steps involved in performing this integration and enabling the functions available with the integration are described in the following table:
|Goal||High-level steps||Additional information|
|2||Create a data collector.||Monitor using external configuration|
|3||Perform a search to analyze the events retrieved.||Searching the data|
|Send events and fetch applications||1|
Create a saved search.
|Managing saved searches|
Create a notification to log an event in BMC TrueSight Presentation Server.
While creating the notification, you can also search for application names available on TrueSight Presentation Server. With this the logged event is associated with the application name that you searched while creating the notification.
To integrate BMC TrueSight Presentation Server with IT Data Analytics, you need to perform the following functions:
Enable BMC Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0 to communicate with IT Data Analytics.
An integration with BMC TrueSight Presentation Server actually involves an integration with BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management registered with BMC TrueSight Presentation Server. When you integrate IT Data Analytics with BMC TrueSight Presentation Server, BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management cells get listed on IT Data Analytics. You can see the cells listed by navigating to Administration > External Configurations, selecting the external configuration (which was automatically created after the integration), and clicking View External Configuration. You can use these cells to achieve the following goals:
The following information provides details about registering details of the IT Data Analytics server on the TrueSight console.
Ensure that BMC TrueSight Presentation Server is up and running in your environment. For more information, see
Ensure that you have already configured BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management on BMC TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see
If you have not already enabled Atrium Single Sign-On 9.0 to communicate with IT Data Analytics, run the enablesso CLI command.
You might want to see some troubleshooting scenarios regarding the integration. For more information, see Troubleshooting common issues.
To enable cross-launch from the TrueSight console into IT Data Analytics, you must first register details of the IT Data Analytics Server with BMC TrueSight Presentation Server (on the TrueSight console). For more information, see the integration process.
You can cross-launch into IT Data Analytics from applications and events available on the TrueSight Console. Before you cross-launch into IT Data Analytics, it is important that you create a data collector for the following items:
Data collectors are objects that help you collect data records (or events) from the target hosts and make it available for search and analysis. For more information, see Creating data collectors. Creating data collectors beforehand ensures that you can search events after you cross-launch from the TrueSight console into IT Data Analytics.
Create data collectors to start collection of event data from BMC TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see Monitor using external configuration data collector.
Create notifications on the event data collected and subsequently log events on BMC TrueSight Presentation Server. For more information, see Creating notifications.
