Issue/Introduction

Is it possible with the WA Agent to monitor an AWS S3 bucket for file creation?

Environment

Release : 11.5

Component : CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION AGENT MONITOR

Resolution

Yes, the WA Agent can monitor files on any cloud storage.  Normally, cloud storage is accessible by VM or hosts running on the same cloud service provider (e.g. AWS, Azure, Oracle Cloud, IBM etc.).  The agent will have to be installed on the VM/host where storage is accessible.  Refer to cloud service provider on how to mount or load storage to the VM.
