In your integration solution, there may be certain objects that must be started in order to test and use; the object can't perform its intended function until it has actually started, even after it has been promoted. Examples include File Monitors, Email Monitors, Database Monitors, Business Processes, and Web Service Providers.
File Monitors can be configured to monitor a specific directory and launch a related Event upon file detection; however, the File monitor can't perform this function until it has actually been activated. While it's true that File Monitors can be configured to run as a service (i.e., activated upon server start-up - probably the most common approach to using this object in Production), the ability to activate (and deactivate) is the preferred method used when testing File Monitors as part of an overall Project.
File Monitors can be activated from with the Admin Console's Resource Monitors view.
Database Monitors are started and stopped in two different ways: manually through the Admin Console, or from a Business Process task. The monitor must be deployed before activation can take place. Database Monitors can be activated from the Admin Console's Resource Monitors view.
Email Receive Monitors
The Email Receive Monitor works by polling for and capturing data directly from an email attachment or email body. The data is passed to an Event, which launches a Business Process and begins the transformation process in Clarify.
Email Receive Monitors can be activated from with the Admin Console's Resource Monitors view.
Business Processes can be activated directly from the Admin Console's Business Process view. Use the Launch Business Process button to manually launch a selected Business Process. A previously launched Business Process can also be launched using the Relaunch Last Business Process button on the main menu bar of the Admin Console.

The Web Service Provider object helps you generate and configure certain resources that someone using your service will need in order to send you a request message. Once activated, this object detects incoming requests, and can process them using other objects like Business Processes, Schemas, etc.
Under the Resource Monitor Types section, select Web Service Provider. All deployed Provider objects should appear in the Resource Monitors section. Any object that has already been started will have a green indicator, while red indicators show that it has not started.
From the Resource Monitor section, select the Web Service Provider object you wish to start and click Start .
