The calling process for the ConnectorFramework must be run under an account which is a member of the Operations Manager Administrator user role. The Operations Manager Administrators user role is created at setup time and includes the full privileges to the Operations Manager.
The Connector Framework is the base point for sending and receiving data to the Operation Manager. Product connectors allow communication between Operations Manager and other management systems. These connectors are built on the ConnectorFramework.
There are two types of product connectors in the ConnectorFramework namespace:
Connectors that forward alerts to a management application and then keep them in sync with updates returned from that management application.
Connectors that insert alerts into the Operation Manager from other management systems and keep them in sync with that management system. Instances, Events, and Performance data are returned to the Operation Manager.
|ConnectorFrameworkAdministration||Allows you to perform operations related to monitoring connectors and connector subscriptions, such as creating connectors, retrieving monitoring connectors, and deleting connectors and connector subscriptions.|
|ConnectorFrameworkProxy||Used for building monitoring connector applications that synchronize data in System Center Operations Manager 2007 with other management applications. The ConnectorFrameworkProxy class provides methods to register and initialize a monitoring connector.|
|ConnectorGlobalConfiguration||Contains configuration properties for a Management Group.|
|ConnectorInfo||Contains information about a monitoring connector such as the name and description.|
|ConnectorMonitoringAlert||Contains information about an alert returned from a monitoring connector.|
|ConnectorMonitoringAlertUpdateFailure||Represents a failure that occurred from updating an alert.|
|ConnectorTieredOperationFailure||Represents an operation failure for a given tiered Management Group.|
|IncrementalMonitoringDiscoveryData||Collects discovery data and merges the existing discovery data with the discovery information provided in the incremental update.|
|MonitoringConnector||Retrieves and updates alerts and inserts discovery data.|
|MonitoringConnectorSubscription||Represents a monitoring connector subscription.|
|SnapshotMonitoringDiscoveryData||Allows you to collect instances of discovery data objects.|
|IConnectorFramework||Defines the methods to register and initialize a connector and to monitor its communication channel and state after it has begun sending data.|
