Before you begin

Role required: admin

About this task

Event Management can process Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control SNMP traps as events. For the SNMP trap listener to receive traps from OEM, you must designate the MID Server that runs the SNMP trap listener as a recipient of the trap. Upon receiving an OEM trap, the MID Server sends the trap to the ServiceNow instance for further processing as an event by Event Management.
The OEM 12c Trap event rule is provided with the default base instance, as well as these alert action rules:
  • Oracle EM Launch Target Status
  • Oracle EM Launch View Event


  1. Navigate to Event Management > Event Listener (Push) > MID SNMP Traps Listener.
  2. Click New.
  3. Fill in the fields, as described in Event collection for SNMP traps. For the SNMP version field, select: v1 and v2c.
  4. Click Submit.

What to do next

In Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control, configure the MID Server as a trap listener target.
