Troubleshooting installation for BMC Service Desk Automation run book 

Issue: When you install the BMC Service Desk Automation run book, BMC Atrium Orchestrator installs certain BMC Remedy ITSM artifacts, such as change and task templates, default approval process configurations, operational categorization relationships, template group association forms, active links, and filters.

Error code 1025 occurs when the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Content installation program attempts to install artifacts that already exist in BMC Remedy Action Request System. 

Error message: 

 The following error message is displayed

Troubleshooting BMC Remedy ITSM issues

Issue: After installing the BMC Service Desk Automation run book, in the incident template or task template, the user who installed the run book appears as the Assignee in the Assignment tab. 
When a service request that uses the incident or the task template is triggered, the incident/task is not created and the use case fulfillment fails.

Resolution: After installation, remove the username from the Assignee field and make it blank.

  1. Log on to the BMC Remedy ITSM system via Midtier.
  2. From the IT Home page, click Administration > Application Administrator Console.
  3. Click the Custom Configuration tab.
  4. In Application Settings, select Incident Management > Template > Template and click Open.
  5. Search for the AO:SDA:Generic Incident Template and click View to open the template.
  6. Click the Assignment tab and remove the user name from the Assignee field.
  7. Click Save.

To remove the assignee from the task template, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the BMC Remedy ITSM system via Midtier.
