Configuring SNMP

You can configure OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) to send Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) traps about the status of workflow operations.

About this task

The WFA .mib file provides information about the traps that are sent by the WFA server. The .mib file is located in the <WFA_install_location>\wfa\bin\wfa.mib directory on the WFA server.
Note: The WFA server sends all the trap notifications with a generic object identifier (1.3.6.1.4.1.789.1.1.12.0).

You cannot use SNMP community strings such as community_string@SNMP_host for SNMP configuration.

Steps

  1. Log in to WFA through a web browser as an admin user, and then access the WFA server.
  2. Click Administration > WFA Configuration.
  3. In the WFA Configuration dialog box, click the SNMP tab, and then select the Enable SNMP check box.
  4. Enter an IPv4 or IPv6 address or the host name, and the port number of the management host.
    WFA sends SNMP traps to the specified port number. The default port number is 162.
  5. In the Notify On section, select one or more of the following check boxes:
    • Workflow execution started
    • Workflow execution completed successfully
    • Workflow execution failed/partially successful
    • Workflow execution waiting for approval
    • Acquisition failure
  6. Click Send Test Notification to verify the settings.
  7. Click Save.
