Mapping listeners to node types

To effectively use node classifications, you must map listeners to node types. When you start a node with a specific node type, the node runs only the listeners that are associated with that node type.

  1. Open a listener rule form in one of the following ways:
    • From the Node Classification landing page
      1. Click Designer Studio > System > Operations > Node Classification.
      2. On the Listeners tab, click the name of a listener in the Listener column to open its rule form.
    • From the Explorer panel
      1. Click Records > Integration-Resources, and then click the listener that you want to configure: Email Listener, File Listener, JMS Listener, or MQ Listener.
      2. Click the name of a listener in the list to open its rule form.
  2. In the Listener nodes section on the Properties tab, select NodeClassification based startup from the Startup option list.
    Note: If you do not see the Startup option list, clear the Block startup check box.
  3. In the Classification section, click the Plus icon to add a node type.
  4. In the Node Type field, press the Down Arrow key and select a node type from the list. Only the allowed node types are shown. The listener runs for all the nodes that are started with the node type or types that you select.
    • Search – The listener runs on a search node for search jobs.
    • WebUser – The listener runs on a web user node for web user jobs.
    • BIX – The listener runs on a BIX node for BIX jobs.
    • BackgroundProcessing – The listener runs on a background node.
    • Custom1, Custom2, Custom3, Custom4, Custom5 – The listener runs on the selected custom node.
  5. Optional: Repeat steps 3 through 4 to add another node type to the same listener.
  6. Click Save.
Note: To run the listener on all the node types, select Run on all nodes from the Startup option list and save the rule form.
