Integration use cases

An integration with Remedy Action Request System can provide you additional context about a problem (or event) and help you determine the root cause more quickly. For example, while troubleshooting an issue on one of the servers, it is useful to see change and incident information related to that server.

This integration also helps you find answers to questions such as: 

  • How many tickets are still open?
  • How many tickets are closed?
  • The pending tickets are marked on whose name?

To understand the integration process, see Integrating with Remedy Action Request System.

An integration with the TrueSight and ProactiveNet products can help you perform faster root cause analysis and discover important insights about events collected. You can collect all kinds of event data, for example, incident events, change events, and even alarms generated by ProactiveNet.

While analyzing a problem or event on the TrueSight (or ProactiveNet) product,  you can access TrueSight IT Data Analytics to perform root-cause analysis. You can directly cross-launch into TrueSight IT Data Analytics. This feature allows you to use the current context of the TrueSight (or ProactiveNet) product to further study the problem in TrueSight IT Data Analytics.  To be able to access TrueSight IT Data Analytics from the Presentation Server, you need to first integrate TrueSight IT Data Analytics with the TrueSight Presentation Server. To understand the integration process, see Integrating with TrueSight and ProactiveNet products.

Collection Agents compatible with IT Data Analytics

The following Collection Agent versions are compatible with this release of TrueSight IT Data Analytics:

  • 11.3.01
  • 11.0.00

The preceding versions apply to both standalone Collection Agents and Collection Agents available for the PATROL infrastructure.

For more information, see Setting up Collection Agents.

Administering integrations

For integrating with a supported BMC product (or external system), you need to first create an external configuration by navigating to Administration > External Configurations. Doing this is necessary to register details of the supported product with TrueSight IT Data Analytics so that TrueSight IT Data Analytics can easily communicate with the external system.

For some integrations, creating an external configuration is not applicable. In these scenarios, you need to register details of the TrueSight IT Data Analytics server on the supported product. After the integration completes, details of the integrated product is displayed on the External Configurations tab.

On the External Configurations tab, the following details are available:

FieldDescription
NameName used while creating the external configuration.
HostHost name of the server (external system) with which you want to connect.
External Configuration

Kind of external configuration; for example, TrueSight Presentation Server.

TypeFunctions for which the external configuration is created; for example, Notification & Collection.
