Introduction:
Not all UIM CI types are supported by the SOI UIM connector. This document describes how to add the "fetchmsg" probe CIs into SOI.
Environment:
UIM 8.51
SOI 4.0/SP2
Instructions:
Currently the UIM connector can only map Alerts to a file type of CI only when the prid="logmon". For all the AS400 alerts the prid="fetchmsg" so the alert comes in as Unknown. The following policy file changes were made to address this.

1. Edit the following file: CA\Catalyst\CatalystConnector\registry\topology\physical\_CatalystConnector\modules\policy\nimsoftconnector_policy.xml.

2. Go to the following section in the file:
<Field output='temp_LogMon' outputtype='ref' type='map' input='prid'> 
<mapentry mapin='logmon' mapout='LogMon' /> 
</Field> 

3. Update the section to add the 'fetchmsg' mapping: 
<Field output='temp_LogMon' outputtype='ref' type='map' input='prid'> 
<mapentry mapin='logmon' mapout='LogMon' /> 
<mapentry mapin='fetchmsg' mapout='FetchMsg' /> 
</Field> 

4. Recycle  the Catalyst Container service.
