Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

XML File Policies
XML file policies read values in XML files and respond when the value that you choose appears in the file. XML file policies are especially suited for integrating data from third-party systems that can store their information in XML format.
XML file policies process XML files and send data to OMi when certain conditions apply. You can define the attributes of the OMi event or metric based on information in the XML file. This enables you to process data generated by other applications and to convert it to OMi events or metrics.
XML file policies process exactly the XML elements and attributes that you define. The XML syntax is not important to the policy, as long as the information is embedded in XML elements and attributes.
If the application does not store its data in XML files, you may write a program or script that extracts the events, metrics, or topology data from wherever they are stored, formats the data using XML syntax, and generates an XML file with the data. If you have control over the XML elements that are used in the XML file, choose XML elements and attributes that map to event or metric attributes and values. This will simplify the policy.
