Configuring SevOne Observer jobs

Using the SevOne Observer functionality, you can load monitored servers and their relationships, and then visualize this data as a topology view.

Before you begin

Important: The SevOne Observer supports SevOne version 6.2.0 & API version 2.20.0.

Ensure you have the SevOne server details to hand, such as the username and password.

About this task

A SevOne Observer job extracts SevOne managed servers and their relationships via REST API calls.

You define and start the following job.

SevOne Load job

Run this job whenever you need SevOne topology data refreshed.

By default, Load jobs are one-off, transient jobs that do a full upload of all requested topology data as soon as they are triggered.

You can also run these jobs (again) from the Observer UI, or schedule them to run at set times when configuring them.
