Issue:
  • The nimalarm utility has the ability to set custom alert variables to specific values, with flags -1, -2, -3 up to 5.
  • We need to do this also for alarms from standard nimsoft probes so that these can be used in custom URL actions in USM.
  • How is this done?
Resolution:
You will need to configure alarm enrichment to populate the custom fields kb000010788 guides you on the basics of alarm enrichment and the worked example is how to set the custom field.
