Customize and configure the following settings:

Field Description
Location Mapping (legacy)

The legacy method for location mapping assigns a location from a device attribute, like its subnet, which changes whenever the device connects from a different location. This method requires two separate mappings: first from an attribute (like a subnet) to a location name, then a separate mapping from each location name to its city, state, country, region and coordinates.

See Configure Business Locations with a Device Attribute (Legacy Location Mapping).

SNMP Trap Manager

You can integrate Aternity with your ticketing system (SNMP trap manager) to route all incident alerts or Aternity system errors (like database connectivity issues), to display them centrally on your SNMP management system, alongside alerts from other applications.

See Configure Aternity with a Ticketing System (SNMP Trap Manager).

Select Refresh in the top right corner to confirm your changes were successful.
