Trap correlation and Send SNMP trap based alerts to Netcool or any event Manager

Sevone has the ability to receive the traps and generate alerts  but its lack to send this alert to any of the event manager via Trap . 

Because of this  trap processing bears no value . As an end user they prefer to see both threshold and trap based alerts on the single pane which easy for t-shooting . In current scenario due to this limitation end user has to relay on netcool or any other trap tool. But netcool doesn't have the ability to correlate these traps as if it send clear it can't clear it .  but sevone can co-relate it as it have the earlier trap associated device information . 

I believe this should be a must have feature which will increase the value addition to sevone .

    Akhil, SevOne NPM can send alerts to Watson AIOPS (Netcool) via webhook and those webhooks can then be ingested an observer in CloudPak for Watson AIOPS to take advantage of correlation. We do not intend to duplicate this functionality via sending alerts from SevOne NPM as trap notifications.

    On generating alerts from device traps, that is a capability we improved in NMS 6.5. SevOne is now able to define conditions for traps to open and close alerts. In addition, those alerts can now send webhook notifications to other platforms, like Netcool/WAIOPS.

    As long as ATOS is able to use a version of WAIOPS that features the SevOne Observer, I believe you should be able to achieve the value you're looking for.

    Please let me know if this helps. I'm happy to discuss further if you have questions.
