Hey guys, i have a question about the use of Event Frames.

I request you to check the below link for deatils about the event frames,
KB01197 - Introduction to creating event frames
answer to your questionn particularly, Yes its possible to fire an url as an delivery channel when the event frames start, check thw below posts for details,
Delivery Channels and vCampus Live!
How to develop Notification delivery channel that can edit/design the message just like Email channel?
The short answer to your question is "Yes" but there was a major change introduced with PI Notifications 2016 R2. Please see Notifications Overview. With the current release Custom Delivery Channels are no longer supported. The 2 other threads Vasanth referenced both refer Custom Delivery Channels which were an option with PI Notifications prior 2016 R2 but are today outdated. With the current release Notifications can be send via email or to a web service. The second option is an indirect one to treat Notifications individually through a custom web service which takes care for the further treatment.
You can also create a custom service using e.g. AF SDK to monitor Notifications or Event Frames and to e.g. fire a command or open a URL in a browser.
By the way, with PI Notification emails, one can also include links. I suggest you to look at the Notifications chapter inside the documentation of the current PI Server release.
Can you share some additional information about what you like to accomplish?
Thanks for your attention,
"Can you share some additional information about what you like to accomplish?"
Yes ! I just need to start a workflow, when an event frame starts, and i will use MOSS to start this workflow. In details, when an event frame starts, i need to add item to a SP List and start a workflow on this item.
(Sorry about poor english ! )
Hey guys, i'm start to configure my Notifications... can i call SOAP webservices...
But a new problem, how can i call an soap webservice WITH authentication info ?! ^^
The 'new' PI Notifications implementation is based on Event Frames, hence I suggest going with PI Notifications right away.
Yes, SOAP is supported. Please see Configure a SOAP web service delivery endpoint
Please refer to Configure authentication for a web service connection
Both links go to the PI Server 2018 documentation => the Notifications chapter (see link in my earlier post). Please let us know if you are facing any issues navigating through the documentation.
One small thing to add, we had a bug in the 2017 version of Notifications: 173212 - Windows Authentication fails in Web Service This bug is resolved in 2017 R2 and later. I'll inform the team responsible for the Tech Support website to update the known issue information as it says unresolved at this time which is incorrect.
