Creating an SNMP trap sender

NoteYou can access your management information base (MIB) file through HCM when creating or editing an SNMP trap sender. It appears as a downloadable link on the right-hand side of the page.

You can create an SNMP trap sender using the Monitor App, REST API, or CLI.

For REST API, use command POST /senders. For CLI, use command createSender.

To create an SNMP trap sender using the Monitor App:


  1. Click Monitors.

  2. Click + on the Monitors tab.

    NoteThe Monitor + button only functions when you need to create a monitor from the Manage page or a sender from the Sender page.
  3. Select NEW SENDER.

  4. Configure the settings for your SNMP trap sender:

    NameA name for the SNMP trap sender.
    DescriptionA description for the SNMP trap sender.
