(Doc ID 1540562.1)

Notification methods define the method by which the notifications will be sent to the Enterprise Manager administrators under the configured conditions. The available Notification methods in Enterprise Manager are:
- Email Notification
- OS Command
- SNMP Trap
- PL/SQL Procedure
This document provides the steps for configuring OS Command Notification Method in 12c/13c Enterprise Manager Cloud Control UI so that a custom OS command or script can be invoked on the occurrence / update of an Event / Incident / Problem as defined in the Incident Management Rules. The script can access the contextual information of the event / incident / problem details via environment variables, which can be used to customize automated responses specific to event conditions.
For example, if an OS script opens a trouble ticket for an in-house support trouble ticket system, severity levels (critical, warning, and so on) can be passed to the script to open a trouble ticket with the appropriate details.
1. Policy Violations are no longer supported for enabling Notifications beginning with the Enterprise Manager 12c release.
2. Once the notification method has been created, it is necessary to define an Incident Management Rule which provides the conditions under which this method is invoked by the OMS for sending notifications. Refer to:
Note 1368036.1 : EM 12c, EM 13c : Steps to Configure Incident Rules to Send Notifications or Manage Events / Incidents / Problems
Note 1553311.1 : EM 12c, EM 13c : How to Configure Incident Rule to Invoke Advanced Notification Methods like OS Command, PL/SQL or SNMP Traps?
