Overview

The Tivoli Alerting Plugin enables the ability to push dynaTrace Incident Notifications into Tivoli.
In general, the Tivoli Plugin only executes the denoted Tivoli Executeable with all the denoted settings as parameter.
So it is very important, you have a running Tivoli Endpoint installed on the same machine the Plugin is running.

      Hi Mohaideen,

      This page has instructions for installing plugins. The Tivoli plugin is a tad outdated though, so in the event that does not work, I have had success forwarding Dynatrace alerts into Tivoli Netcool Omnibus with SNMP traps.
