    This would make the integration with another application easier and hopefully smoother. Can the southbound gateway EventAdmin model take input from an API post events call, or some other method , the same way it does from an SNMP trap?

    Thanx

    Hi Tim,

    I believe you can just use Restful API to post event (create event) on the EventAdmin model.

    Can you try and verify?

    Well I tried that before posting the question and it didn't work. After some more searching I discovered that the problem is in trying to use the typical custom event codes; 0xfff00000 or greater. After modifying the event to 0x7fffffff all works as expected.

    Here's a good explanation of why it didn't work.

    Thanks for the response
