Implementing BMC Event Manager to work with BMC products
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.
