Before you begin
A trap destination contains the information that the WebLogic SNMP agent needs to send notifications to an SNMP manager. Create one trap destination for each SNMP manager that you want to receive notifications from a WebLogic Server SNMP agent.
Note: Once you create a trap destination, you cannot rename it. Instead, you must delete it and create another one that uses the new name.
Note: You configure the type of notification that an agent sends by selecting a value from the Trap Version list on the agent's Configuration: General page. See Configuration Options.
The user name must be the name of an existing WebLogic Server user for whom you have created an SNMP credential map. When the WebLogic SNMP agent prepares a notification, it uses the credential map to look up and encode SNMP credentials. For information about creating an SNMP credential map, see Secure SNMPv3 communication.
For example, if the WebLogic SNMP agent requires incoming SNMPv3 requests to use the authentication protocol, the security level for this trap destination must either require authentication or both authentication and privacy.
