Teams Manager Moolet

The Teams Manager Moolet is triggered by Moogsoft Enterprise when a Situation is created, updated and deleted, and also when a team is created and updated. You can assign teams to Situations using the filters in the UI under Settings > Teams > General. If there are no filters for a team, it is assigned all new Situations by default.

If you use the "assignTeamsToSituation" Graze API endpoint or MoogDb method to assign teams to a Situation, Moogsoft Enterprise marks the Situation as overridden. The Teams Manager Moolet can no longer act on it even if that Situation matches a filter.

You can alter the behavior of the Teams Manager Moolet by changing the "Situation Update Policy" in the UI under Settings > Teams.

One Teams Manager Moolet is run for every instance of Moogsoft Enterprise.

Configure Teams Manager

You can configure the Teams Manager Moolet in the $MOOGSOFT_HOME/config/moolets/teams_manager.conf configuration file.

Moolets are capable of supporting multiple Moobots. By configuring a Moolet to run multiple Moobots, you can customise the functions of the default Moobot. You can use this feature to customise the actions for Workflow Engine. To do this, locate the Moobot property in the Moolet configuration file and add a comma-separated list of the Moobots you want to run. See the extract Teams Manager Moolet parameters below and notice the default "moobot" property which contains one Moobot: "SituationMgr".
