Manage BSMC Policies from OMi 10

Is it possible to manage BSMC polciies from the OMi 10 servers?  I see hints of it in OMi 10 where therea re policy types that are used for BSMC.  It seems like it would make sens to have the ability to store and change the policy from the OMi servers and then deploy to the BSMC servers.  Ive had a lot of issuse with policies becoming corupt and making small changes and then not haivng a previous version to go back to if change didnt work on the BSMC servers in the past.  Any thoughts on this?

Yes, it's possible and officially supported since OMi 10.01.

The the moment, you can't manage BSMC policies via monitoring automation. 

You connect to the BSMC webserver running on the BSMC system itself, but you dont' need to leave the OMi 10 console to do this.

Thanks.

Dimitry says you can and you say you cant.  So what is the offical answer?

I was looking through the BSMC 10.01 documentation and there is no mention of managing policies in OMi 10 for the BSM Connectior.  Still seems like you have the manage the BSMC 10 policies from the local web interface.  These seems manual and the exact oposite direction of the rest of OMi 10 that is all about automation.  If it is not supported yet, Is it being actively developed?

If you navigate to OMi 10.01 UI under Administration > Monitoring > Policy Templates you will see various Policy Templates Groups. Expand ones for Events, Metrics and Topology and you will see "Event from ...", "Metric from ...", "Topology from ..." policy types. These are BSMC policies.
