Implementing BMC Event Manager to work with BMC products

This section describes how to implement a MainView AutoOPERATOR connection with BMC Event Manager by using BMC Impact Integration for z/OS (BMC II for z/OS).

For information about BMC Impact Integration for z/OS, refer to the MainView AutoOPERATOR BMC Impact Integration for z/OS User Guide.


Overview of bidirectional communications

You can implement MainView AutoOPERATOR to BMC Event Manager communication by implementing a TCP/IP-based interface between MainView AutoOPERATOR and BMC Event Manager.

Refer to Establishing a connection to a BMC Event Manager for more information.

Communication between MainView AutoOPERATOR and BMC Event Manager is bidirectional:

  • Using BMC Impact Explorer, you can view MainView AutoOPERATOR ALERTs and events and close the ALERTs on MainView AutoOPERATOR from the Explorer.

  • MainView AutoOPERATOR users can send MainView AutoOPERATOR ALERTs and events to BMC Event Manager for cross-platform automation or business system modeling.

  • BMC Event Manager users can send requests to run commands and EXECs in MainView AutoOPERATOR.

  • BMC Event Manager users can send requests to issue write-to-operator messages (WTOs) with MainView AutoOPERATOR.

To implement the bidirectional communication, you must establish a connection to each BMC Event Manager cell and specify the BMC Impact Integration Server in MainView AutoOPERATOR which is described in Establishing a connection to a BMC Event Manager.
