You can run a workflow that waits to receive an SNMP trap from a specified device.

This workflow features a trigger, which stops the run of the workflow and waits for an SNMP trap before continuing. When a trap is received, the workflow run resumes. You can use the workflow as part of more complex workflows, or as a sample that you can customize or extend for a specific need.


  • Verify that you are logged in to the Orchestrator client as an administrator.

  • Verify that you have a connection to an SNMP device from the Inventory view.


  1. Click the Workflows view in the Orchestrator client.
  2. In the workflows hierarchical list, expand Library > SNMP and navigate to the Wait for a trap on an SNMP device workflow.
  3. Right-click the Wait for a trap on an SNMP device workflow and select Start workflow.
  4. Select the device on which you want to wait for an SNMP trap.
  5. (Optional) In the OID text box, type the object identifier of a specific trap.

    If you leave the text box empty, the workflow run resumes after receiving any trap from the specified SNMP device.

  6. Click Submit to run the workflow.
