CloudForms Alerts and Management Events

CloudForms has the capability to trigger a management event if the driving event is met. So for example if a vmware vm gets a reset you can execute a custom event under System – Events – CustomEvents – Management:

If you want to execute a Management event you will need to copy the Management class into your datastore and point the instance ( in my case walk_objects) via relationship to the instance (object_walker)  you want to execute

For this alert to be triggered you will need an alert profile and assign it to the provider you would like to be monitored.

Once the Alert Profile is active you can check /var/www/miq/vmdb/log/automation.log and watch the alert being triggered.
