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.
I may have missed something pertinent in them, but I can't see anything that will actually tells me how to import and monitor a process from a LiveCycle ES2 server. Importantly, the documentation appears to be for BAM ES1 and doesn't seem to match up with what I can see.
I was thinking that "Working with Agents for Context Data Sources" in BAM ES Workbench.pdf would have been helpful but it says I should be seeing items about "agents" on the left but I see no such thing. I'm guessing this is because it's not up-to-date documentation.
Anyone else have any tutorials?
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.
I don't see any option like that in LiveCycle Workbench ES2 on any of my processes. Where exactly is it?
If this is one on the BAM itself, how do I get it to see my Workbench ES2 processes in the first place so that I can enable that option?
Ah, found the option. I've checked it, with no apparent change on the BAM. It may or may not be configured correctly, and it's unclear how to use it.
As per my original question, is there any how-to documentation?
It may not be configured properly. That's part of what I'm asking: how do you configure it properly? Where is the documentation to set-up and use the BAM? How do you point it at an ES2 server and have it pick up the processes?
I'm not necessarily looking for one of you guys to give me a step-by-step (that would be excellent, but asking a bit much). I'm really looking for some how-to style documentation.
What about chapter 6 of the installation guide located at http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/install_jboss.pdf?
I am trying to create a UDF for BAM ES2 and it requires cognosAPI.jar any idea were i can download this.
I tried searching it in Adobe ES2 installables as specified in the documentations but did not find it
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.
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.
