How to send Splunk alert name in SNMP trap with snmp-ma app

We are trying to generate SNMP trap from Splunk Alert to our HP BSM monitoring solution. We wan't to send Splunk Alert name in SNMP trap. We are using Splunk version 7.1.2. However we are having problem configuring splunk-ma app to do this.
Can someone provide what to put in MIB Name and MIB Object fields to achieve this? Do we need to import Splunk Alert MIBs somewhere?

You choose this based on how/what you want HP BSN to interpret.

For Example if I want splunk to tell BSM a network switch is down, that would be a different MIB from a server reboot snmp trap.

The support MIBs are those supported by pysnmp python library.

The idea behind this app is that splunk can send any SNMP message “pretending” to be any SNMP device. Versus splunk sending splunk MIBs saying splunk restarted etc.

Currently there is no way to pass anything from your search to the SNMP payload.

You could possibly eval MIBs to send through, but I didn’t add any way to send strings of text in.

That would require much more effort to develop.
