This section reviews configuration for the GroundWork Monitor Status application.

1.0 Creating Links to Status Pages

This topic covers how to define links from third party applications, inside the portal or from external applications, to the GroundWork Status application.

1.1 URL Formats

External applications can access Status hosts,host groups, services, and service groups by creating a URL with the actual host and service name as specified in the table below:

URL Node Type Format of URL
Host Group http://<server-name>/portal-statusviewer/urlmap?hostgroup=Linux%20Servers
Host http://<server-name>/portal-statusviewer/urlmap?host=localhost
Service http://<server-name>/portal-statusviewer/urlmap?host=localhost&service=local_mysql_database
Service Group http://<server-name>/portal-statusviewer/urlmap?servicegroup=sg1
1.2 External Application Redirection Scenarios

Users of an external application will be redirected to the Entire Network view of the GroundWork Monitor Status application for the following scenarios:

  • An incorrect node name parameter is specified which does not exist. For example if the host parameter is set to host=abcd and the host abcd does not exist in the system.
  • When a URL translator makes use of ReferenceTreeMetaModel (RTMM) for mapping a name with the actual ID and creating the URL. If the managed bean for RTMM has not been instantiated/created and an external application tries to access the Status application the user will be redirected to the Entire Network view.
