BAM ES2 Starting point

Dec 8, 2009 4:04 AM

I'm not 100% sure this is the right forum for this but I can't see a better fit...

 

I've got a BAM ES2 instance running, and a LiveCycle ES2 instance running on another server with a few deployed processes. How do I actually use the BAM to do any sort of monitoring or reporting on those deployed processes? The documentation explains some of the high-level concepts (cubes etc) but doesn't appear to provide any "how to" information.

 

I'm basically looking for a tutorial or documentation that will let me actually use the thing, as it's not particularly intuitive or obvious how you use your processes as input to the BAM.

 

Any starting point at all would be appreciated.

    The only thing you should have to do is check the "Auto Generate BAM Dasboards" checkbox in the properties of your process (under Configure/Advanced).

     

    That should automatically create a set of dashboards you can use from the dashboard interface.

    Right-click your process and select "Properties".

     

    See the attached screenshot.

    Sorry, I'm using workbench ES (not ES2).

     

    As suggested by Jasmin, point to configure->Advanced option and then try.

    Make sure to deploy your application  once the checkbox is checked.

    Then something might not be installed/configured properly.

     

    Any error in the server.log file.

     

    You don't see anything in the BAM dashboard interface?

    Is the process short lived or long lived?

    Good point. It has to be long- lived, otherwise there's no data saved in the database.

    What about chapter 6 of the installation guide located at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/install_jboss.pdf?

    IN ES2, we have this new BAM wizard that allows you to expose process variables in BAM dashboards.

     

    You can find more information under

    C:\Adobe\Adobe LiveCycle ES2\LiveCycle_ES_SDK\misc\Business_Activity_Monitoring\LavaActivitySu ite\BAMWizard\bam_wizard_guide.pdf.

    You could use a setValue and extract the data you want from the form data into process variables.

     

    Otherwise you would have to create your own dashboard using the BAM Workbench interface.

    I have created my own dashboard but i guess we have to write UDF for extracting values from form data and there is no other options that adobe provides

    Like I said, your other option is to extract the data with LC in separate process variables.

     

    This gives you two advantages:

     

    1- You can use the BAM wizard to create some dashboards from you.

    2- It will create a separate column in the database for every variable it creates. That makes it easier for you to query the data from a custom dashboard.
