Important Product-Related Announcements
On the left-hand side of the page, this section provides information about new features in MySQL Enterprise Monitor, what you should do next to complete your set up, and related information. Sections exist for new and upgraded installations.
For related information, see Chapter 7, Post-installation Considerations.
My Oracle Support is the channel for interacting with Oracle Support across all products. MySQL Enterprise Monitor (MEM) provides a basic integration with My Oracle Support (MOS), allowing you to see an up-to-date list of Open and waiting-on-customer support issues in the product.
In Global Settings, provide your own My Oracle Support (MOS) / Oracle SSO credentials. These are stored encrypted in the MEM repository, and are used to sign in to the MOS services. For more information about these settings, see Chapter 14, Global Settings.
MySQL Enterprise Monitor periodically checks the status of MOS Service Requests (SRs) associated with the account with the provided credentials.
Any currently "Open" SRs will be listed on the What's New page.
Any Open SRs that are in a "Waiting on Customer" state, those that need your attention, are also displayed on the Overview Dashboard.
In both locations, the SRs are linked to the My Oracle Support system for your convenience.
Use thebutton on the What's New page to control if the MOS check should be performed, and also to force an immediate update of the status of MOS Support Requests.
To poll the My Oracle Support site directly, your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager must have access to the My Oracle Support website. If your MySQL Enterprise Service Manager is not directly connected to the Internet, you can set an HTTP proxy to help access the information. For more information on configuring an HTTP proxy, see Section 14.6, “HTTP Proxy Settings”.
