System Monitoring for a technical system is automatically configured during Simple System Integration (SSI). During the SSI step “System Monitoring”, all installed products of the technical system, as well as its database and hosts, will be identified and the corresponding default templates will be applied and activated.
You can maintain the default template for each product in the Template Maintenance application.
It is also possible to implement additional logic for a rule-based template assignment. This is currently covered by a BAdI which is executed during template assignment. Each customer can develop an own implementation of the BAdI to influence which templates should be assigned under which condition. This process is described here.
