Create an SNMP-based custom service using asset data

Use asset discovery data to automatically configure SNMP-based custom services on any SNMP-enabled device. This will speed the application of custom services to save time when adding new devices.

  1. Click Administration > Service Management > Custom Services.
  2. Click Add > Service > SNMP and enter a service name.
  3. Click Add and enter a Query Name.
  4. Enter the OID names and identifiers to use by clicking the + button.
  5. Click Let the Agent/Probe get the SNMP index and enter the OID value.
  6. Click the check box for Enabling editing of this field in MSP N-central. This makes the discovered property visible on the service and service template.
  7. Click Save.
  8. On the Queries tab, click the Identifier Options drop-down list box and select SNMP value to uniquely identify the instance of the service on the device.
  9. Click Save.

You have now created the SNMP-based service.

After you create the SNMP-based custom service in MSP N-central, create a Service Template but do not apply it to the device. Run a Discovery Job against the device and apply the Service Template to it.
