This connector is used together with SCOM 2012. It is a windows service.

Every minute it looks into the working to find any files that has been changed since last run, if any file is changed, the info about the alert will be imported.

After the import, all alerts are exported to xml files, overwriting all files in the working folder.

This can be used to export data about alerts to 3rd party system, or to update alerts inside SCOM 2012 from a 3rd party system.


1. Run setup.exe

2. Go to install directory and edit SCOMXMLConnectorService.exe.config

3. Change SCOMServer Setting to your environment

<setting name="SCOMServer" serializeAs="String">



4. Create local working folder C:\Temp\SCOM (or change the setting, see below)

5. Optionally Change any other settings

Setting Default Value Description
AlertFilterQuery Name LIKE ‘%’ Filter query that decides which alerts to export. By default all alerts will be exported
