  • 1.  deprecated Alarm Console in UMP

    Posted Feb 26, 2018 11:30 AM



    Is there an maybe unsupported opportunity to can integrate v8.2 Alarm Console to UMP8.51? Due support reason (the real only reason) we was enforced by CA to upgrade our v8.2 to latest v8.51. Now we must experience our most important portlet - Alarm Console - has been deprecated. Cant understand product management! Need a workarround to get Alarm Console back - otherwise we will replace now nearly useless UIM by PRTG.


    thx for hints, Steffen

    This seems to be one of the most requested, but not sure why the UIM product management is not so keen on delivering this basic functionality . CA has been directing users to use CABI dashboards for alarm searches but yes that not really a good option 


    Alternatively, you can use the below console which might be a bit of help.We have this setup for historical searches , this is not the best solution but at least solves the purpose up to some extent

    we  acknowledge the need . Just to let you know we are working in some cool features in terms of UI on our IM SaaS offering as part of CA DXI platform.

    We shall have new alarm view using html5. 

    Other functionality shall be added in iterative manner over the releases.

    Hello Phani,

    thank you for the hint with the "CA UIM HTML Alarm Consol". Do you also know, how to license a portlet, because the distribution will not work until the license key will be placed right with an unknown procedure.

    The delivered link comming with the license mail to the procedure http://www.nimsoft.com/support/license_update.html is redirecting to unwanted marketing information.


    Hello Aggas,

    Its not a good practise to drop an important feature before providing the replacement in a product cycle. This should be a basic knowledge for any product manager.

    after integration into UMP v8.51 I get a warning: "HTML alarm Console is temporarily unavailable."

    checked deployment into WASP at filesystem and integration into wasp probe. Everything looks like intended.

    Restarted this Webapp and after this not helped the WASP. but error remains, please help.

    the new "HTML alarm Console" crashes because:

    Feb 27 10:37:20:248 ERROR [http-bio-443-exec-80, org.apache.catalina.core.ContainerBase.[wasp-engine].[localhost].[/HtmlAlarmConsole].[HtmlAlarmConsole]] invoke() Servlet.service() for servlet HtmlAlarmConsole threw exception

    at com.nimsoft.field.alarms.HtmlAlarmConsole.doView(HtmlAlarmConsole.java:114)


    any ideas?


    I tried also to reintegrate the old Flash based AlarmConsole, seams to work but shows no data/alarms into UMP.51.


    any ideas?

    I see the one available from Marketplace is a older version which may not work with the latest version of  UIM . There is a newer version (1.61) which we  got back then . Check with Support to see if you can get that one

    Thx Phani for the hint. CA Support blocked request because the portlet is not supportet by CA. Where we can get the v1.61? I only want to download a compatible version to UMP8.51 without any care of CA support for this feature only.
