How can we track the status of MCS profile deployments programmatically, and alert when profiles are not being successfully pushed?
Check out UMP > Unified Dashboards > CA Business Intelligence Dashboards > Monitoring Configuration Service.
I have UMP > Unified Dashboards > CA Business Intelligence Dashboards, but not Monitoring Configuration Service. What package contains that dashboard, or is there an export file for it?
uim_cabi_mcs_dashboards_pack ( 1.00 available in beta archive)
Probably will be GA in upcoming UIM 9.0 release
I get 403 - Forbidden when I try to access that link, even though I am signed in to CA support
Sorry about that, I was looking at my uim 9.0 lab by mistake. In 9.0 there is a package uim_cabi_mcs_dashboards_pack that provides that functionality. That docops page is probably restricted to people on the beta, and the beta is over now. I emailed you a copy of the docs page. That package is on the support.nimsoft site under the archive beta section. However I can't test it in my 8.51 lab at this time, so if you are going to try it do it in your dev environment first.
I can confirm this works in version 8.5.1.
Drop the package onto your CABI robot and you can view the reports in CABI or you can create a menu page in UMP for the CABI portlet to select these dashboards
There are two -
I would say these are almost essential to anyone using MCS.
I found them within CABI.....I guess I need to learn how to get CABI dashboards into UMP now.....
Login to UMP..
Add Cabi portlet,
top right - spanner icon,
dashboard path and select your dashboard.
Out of the box it is not there.
