Omnibus Insert Delete Update Detect in event?

Technote (FAQ)


Question

I have setup an Impact service (OmnibusEventLIstener) to listen to the
Omnibus's default IDUC channel.

I receive the events correctly but I have no way of knowing if its an
INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE action.

Is there a way to have this info?

Answer

There is not a database field in omnibus that specifies this action

and no way to define that action in the IDUC channel itself. However,

if I understand what you're trying to do, you just want to know if an

event is new/updated/delete correct?

There are a couple of different ways to accomplish this.

Method 1:

Use AEN or Fast Tracking to define different channels for each type of

action Insert/Delete/Update

Most clients do not use this method, but the ones that do use it for

Webtop or WebGui.

Method 2:

Create a trigger in omnibus that whenever it does an insert/update it

sets a flag in a custom field. That way when you write your policies

against alerts.status, you can check the column for create = 1 update =

2 etc. This is probably the simplest way to accomplish the task.
