Is there a way for an EPI script to access data in the source tab of an event?

NNMi (or other) events come through to OMi.  In the source tab there is data for OIDs such as .  I want to write an EPI script to access that data.  I don't want to update the SNMP policy from NNMi because I am trying to keep it "virgin" to simplify the process of updating going forward - basically by not making changes to the policy I can rerun nnmopcexport.ovpl any time and just replace the NNMi connector policy.


So, I want to be able to access the data in the source tab - by OID, or otherwise - in an EPI script.  How do I do that?

Hi Edward,



This is Carlos, I'm an OMi Support representative, according to BSM_Extensibility.pdf guide, EPI scripts can be used for

for modifying and enriching events (please check page 244 of Extensibility guide attached), and also for(please check page 246):


Duplicate events suppression and closing related events automatically.




Execute a script that makes changes to some text, or inserts a link to a knowledge base, and so on, before the event gets stored in the database.


Execute a script at this entry point in the event pipeline to forward events of a particular type, that have already been stored in the database, to another application. Or you could execute a script that writes specified events stored in the database to an audit log.
