You can create Industrial Protocol Interface events to represent Security Center events, and then forward those events as SNMP traps in Config Tool.

What you should know

You can create rules manually one by one, or use presets to batch-create events based on Security Center events.


To create an event:

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. In the Plugins task, select the plugin role from the entity browser, and click the Events tab.
  3. Under the Events list, click Add event ().
  4. In the Name field, enter a name for your Industrial Protocol Interface event.
  5. Under the Security Center events to forward list, click Add Security Center event to forward ().
    The Forward another Security Center event window opens.
  6. From the When list, select a Security Center event.
  7. (Optional) select an entity to raise the event.
  8. Click Add.
  9. (Optional) repeat steps 5 to 8 to forward more events.
  10. Click Apply ( ).

(Optional) Use presets to batch-create Industrial Protocol Interface events:

  1. Click Presets to add one of the following event presets:
    One event per entity type
    Creates as many events as there are types of entities in Security Center. All created events forward every Security Center event that the entity type can raise. This option ignores custom events.
    One event per Security Center event
    Creates as many events as there are Security Center events. Every event forwards a single Security Center event. This option creates events for every Security Center custom event.
    A single event forwarding all Security Center events
    Creates a single event that forwards all existing Security Center events. This option also forwards custom events.
    a list of Security Center events appears in the Events list.
  2. Select an event from the Events list.
  3. Click Apply ( ).
