Launching in context from OMNIbus Event Viewer

You can set up launch-in-context functionality in DASH from a Netcool/OMNIbus Web GUI event list (Event Viewer) to an Agile Service Manager Topology Viewer portlet, using a DASH NodeClickedOn action event.

Using the NodeClickedOn DASH event to launch the topology viewer with a set of parameters is similar to using a direct-launch URL (as described in the following topic: Accessing topologies via direct-launch URL string).

Advantages of using a NodeClickedOn event for launch-in-context (rather than a direct URL)
Removes the need to re-load the entire Topology Viewer when rendering a new topology.
Allows the use of the asmFunctions.sendPortletEvent function to the opened Topology Viewer.
