BSM Connector - OMi Custom Attribute
i am working on BSM Connector 10.x, integrated with OMi 10.10 and OneView 2.0 in order to monitor HP hardware platform and get related events.
When new event has been received i notice that sometimes (but not always), four specific custom attribute has been
added, in particular:
NAME SourcedFromIaManagementProtocol VALUE http
NAME SourcedFromIaManagementPort VALUE 8081
NAME SourcedFromExternalId VALUE OneView: /rest/alerts/6840
NAME SourcedFromDnsName VALUE http <BSM Connector FQDN>
I confirm these CA has not been defined into BSMC Policy, consider as well that same events has been forwarded to BSM platform.
Do you have any suggestion about it? Could they be created by the OMi<->BSM Integration? I would like to remove them, because they are not needed in my environment.
Actually, BSMC is/was using CMAs internally to provide OMi the required information to process the events, e.g. trigger additional event workflows or doing all kind of resolutions (node, eti, ci). These mechanics were heavily in use in OMi 9.x ... Probably OMi has evolved in the meantime and the UI is accidently showing those legacy CMAs.
I wouldn't recommend to delete those ... Nevertheless, I think they have no actual effect; but not sure what impact it could have if you're gonna delete them...
