Web Services is an XML-based technology that allow applications to communicate with each other, regardless of the environment, by exchanging messages in a standardized format (XML) via web interfaces (SOAP and WSDL APIs).
ManageEngine Applications Manager provides a flexible approach to manage a SOA that uses SOAP Web Services. It helps business managers configure SLAs and track high level availablity of the Web Service. Application admins can monitor the performance of these Web Services by configuring Applications Manager to execute 'Operations' published by the Web Service. By specifying the WSDL, a simple wizard helps you configure operations that need to be invoked and gives the ability to specify arguments to the operation. In addition to this, there is out-of-the-box support for configuring thresholds on individual operation execution times and taking corrective actions.
You can add Operations to the Web Service for monitoring. Operations are abstract descriptions of actions supported by the service.
Follow the steps given below to add operations:
Click the Add Operation link present on the right-hand side of the web services monitor screen. This displays the Add Operation screen.
The operations configured in the web service will be listed in the Select Operation drop-down list box. You can either choose any of these operations or choose custom operation.
If you select a pre-configured operation, the SOAP Action and SOAP Request values for the operation will be automatically displayed. Replace the '?' in the SOAP request with your input value.
If you choose the custom operation, you have to specify the Operation Name, SOAP Action and SOAP Request values.
You can use the Test Operation option to check the output before adding the operation for monitoring.
Click Save button to add the operation. Click Save and Configure Another button to add the operation and configure another operation.
The Operations thus added, will be listed in the details page under the Operation Statistics section. In this section, you can view the details of the operation such as Operation Name, SOAP Request, SOAP Response, status and execution time. Applications Manager provides a link in the Alert Email for SOAP Action, to view the SOAP response for the specific operation. You can also configure thresholds and alarms for all the operations.
Click the Manage Operation link under the 'Operation Statistics' section to go to the 'Manage Operation' page. In this page, click the icon to edit the Operation Display name as well as the Arguments including SOAP Action and SOAP Request values.
You can also enable/disable reports for the operations from the Manage Operation page. If you disable reports, Applications Manager will not update the Operation Execution Time graph for that time period.
