Configuring the SAE for External Plug-Ins (C-Web Interface)
You need to configure SAE external plug-ins for SAE plug-in agents in the NIC, for Admission Control Plug-Ins, and for custom plug-ins developed in Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA). For information about external plug-ins, see SRC PE Network Guide.
When you use an external plug-in, you need to export its object reference to the SAE. When the SAE sends the first event to a registered plug-in, it resolves the object reference. In case of a failure, the SAE resolves the object reference again. In this case, if a plug-in restarts and instantiates a different object (that is, a different object reference), the SAE learns about the new object through the naming service or the file reference.
You can configure the SAE to resolve the object reference and specify which attributes to send to the external plug-in.
To configure an external plug-in:
Click Configure, expand Shared>SAE, and then expand the SAE group for which you want to configure a plug-in.
From the side pane, expand Configuration, and click Plug Ins.
The Plug Ins pane appears.
From the Create new list, select Name.
Type a name for the new plug-in in the dialog box, and click OK.
The plug-in appears in the side pane and in the Plug In pane.
From the side pane, expand the new plug-in, and then click External.
Click Create, enter information as described in the Help text in the main pane, and click Apply.
For information about creating a plug-in instance for a group, see Creating Plug-In Instances (C-Web Interface).
