Procedure documentationAdding Third-Party Components

 

This procedure puts your custom functions in the Technical Monitoring and Alerting infrastructure. You implement Business Add-Ins (BAdIs) defined by SAP to adapt software to specific requirements. You must have implemented the BAdI BADI_ALERT_REACTION.

The description of the BAdIs is beyond the scope of this document. See the SAP Community Network under the following link:

End of the caution.

You can make the settings for adding third-party components, on the following levels:

Level

Use

Global

You can set the default values for the entire System Monitoring. Make these settings in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP) in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step System Monitoring Next navigation step Configure Infrastructure Next navigation step Default Settings End of the navigation path.

Template

(SAP or Customer)

You can overwrite the global settings on template level. These settings then apply to all managed objects for which this template is active.

Make these settings in the template, in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step Template Maintenance End of the navigation path.

Managed Object

You can overwrite the existing settings at global level or for specified templates or managed objects.

Make these settings in the SAP Solution Manager Configuration in the step Start of the navigation path Technical Monitoring Next navigation step Set Up Monitoring End of the navigation path, by selecting Maintain MO-Specific Settings. For more information, see Using Templates in the section Changing a Managed Object Directly.

Alert Type

You can overwrite the existing settings at global level or for specified templates or alert types. Make this setting for the alert type, in the Template Maintenance of the template. Choose the Alerts tab, and select an alert type.

Note Note

Settings on a more specific level overwrite those on a more general level.

End of the note.

This procedure describes how you can make the settings for adding third-party components. The possible settings are almost the same on all levels.

Note Note

This procedure is in the Using Templates process. The settings which you make for a managed object in this procedure are only applied when you assign and activate its template, as described in Using Templates.

End of the note.

To adjust the settings, proceed as follows:

  1. Go to the Solution Manager Configuration (transaction SOLMAN_SETUP) step in the table above, for the level on which you want to make settings.

  2. Go to change mode, and ensure that you are in the following tab, depending on the level:
