Configuring the cross-launch application

The probe is supplied with a launch-in-context feature that enables you to launch the Nokia NFM-P Web app from the Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI Event Viewer right-click tool. Users can configure the GUI manually.

Configure the Web GUI manually

To configure the Web GUI manually, complete the following steps.

  1. Edit the object server alerts.status table to add ObjectFullName field using sql file addObjectFullName.sql

    For example:

    $OMNIHOME/bin/nco_sql -server NCOMS -username root -password
    '' </opt/IBM/tivoli/netcool/omnibus/probes/

  2. Login into the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus WebGUI Dashboard Application Service Hub.

    https://<DASH IP or hostname>:16311/ibm/console

    Refer to the IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI Administration and User's Guide to create a new tool of script type named NFMP-CrossLaunch with the following inputs.

    For example:

    1. Open the Event Management Tool (from the Dashboard's side bars)
    2. Select 'Tool Configuration' and create a new tool named "NFMP-CrossLaunch"
    3. Choose type as script and input script as below:
      var objName=’{@ObjectFullName}’; var samhost = ’’; 
      var address = ’http://’ + samhost + ’/FaultManagement?
      view=alarmListImpacts&objectFullName=’+ encodeURIComponent(objName); (address,"NFM-P Cross Launch"); 
    4. * replace the IP <> with your Nokia NSP server hostname or IP address accordingly.

      1. Ensure the protocol is changed from http to https.
      2. Ensure the IP address contains a port number configured for the NSP Client; for example,

  3. Refer to IBM Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI Administration and User's Guide to perform the menu configuration and modify alert menu to include NFMP-CrossLaunch that should be created in step 2 from available items.
