Adding or Removing Service Providers

The Monitor Application receives requests from Monitor Web console users and then passes the requests to the appropriate service provider. The service provider fills the requests and returns the required information to the Monitor Application. The Monitor Application merges the information into the appropriate template and displays it to the user.

To function properly, the Monitor Application must know which service providers are available. The Monitor service provider communicates with the Monitor Agent to fill Monitor Web console requests. The Monitor service provider is installed and configured at the same time as the Monitor Application.

You can disable the Monitor service by removing the Monitor service provider. If you've created new service providers to expose additional services through GroupWise Monitor, you must define those service providers so that the Monitor Application knows about them.

To define service providers:

  1. In ConsoleOne, right-click the Monitor Application object (named GroupWiseMonitor), then click Properties.

  2. Click Application > Services.

    The Provider List displays all service providers that the Monitor Application is configured to use.

    Delete: To remove a service provider from the list, select the provider, then click Delete.

  4. Click OK to save the changes.
