Issue/Introduction

How to setup a notification to send an SNMP trap when job is in certain state, e.g. COMPLETE or FAILED? 

Environment

Release : 12.1

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION DE (DSERIES)
Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION AGENT

Resolution

The CA WA DE (dSeries) is capable of sending several types of notifications when job is in specific state.  This allows users to get notified about the jobs status and can intervene is any action is needed.


First setup the WA Agent to be able to forward and send the traps to SNMP manager. Add the management plugin related parameters in the agentparm.txt.

plugins.start_internal_6=
management
management.snmp.community=<public | private>
management.snmp.host=<IP/host of SNMP>
management.snmp.mibfile=<path to  CA WA Agent install>\cybermation.mib>
management.snmp.port=162


See this link for more details setting up the plugin and number for management.

Restart WA Agent once the parameters have been added.

In DE side, add the notification to job or application.  Open the job properties, go to Notifications, select SNMP and setup New SNMP Trap Notification.
Click Ok, and upload the application again.



Note: The agent selected in the "SNMP Enabled Agent" must be setup before
