Monitoring Entities

Use the following APM features to monitor and locate entities that require attention:

  • Searches. If you want to locate a specific entity or group of entities (based on filters you define), you can search for the entity. For information about searches, see Searching Entities and the Demand Management User Guide.

  • Reports. APM provides a predefined set of reports that allow you to view the current status of your data. For information about reports, see Reports, Reports, and PPM Getting Started guide.

  • Portlets. Portlets provide you with real-time views into your APM–based activities. They provide information such as a list of workstreams assigned to you or the health of applications by business owner. You can customize portlets to track and assess the data that is meaningful to you. For information about portlets, see Portlets, PPM Dashboard Pages and Portlets, and the Creating Portlets and Modules guide.

  • Notifications. Some workflow steps are configured to send email notifications upon activation. As an entity proceeds through its workflow steps, email notifications might be sent to notify you of pending actions. The notification might include a link that you can click to open the referenced entity. For more information, see the Demand Management User Guide.
