If you want to create a new user-defined event policy to perform specialized event processing, first, you must define a new event policy type. An event policy type is a data class, derived from that defines the distinct type of event processing to be performed.
To define a new user-defined policy type, you perform the following tasks
Define a new policy data class that describes the policy type and copy it to the Knowledge Base of each cell instance to use the user-defined policy.
Define the presentation names that you want to appear in user interfaces for the policy type in a ix.properties configuration file.
Create a new rule that defines the event processing done by the policy type and copy it to the Knowledge Base of each BMC IM instance to use the policy.
