Event Orchestration enhancements

Event Orchestration offers a reusable pluggable framework for providing Orchestration actions for events occurring in the TrueSight Presentation Server. After you install and configure the runbook, an operator can initiate Orchestration actions from the TrueSight Console, which trigger triage and remediation workflows in TrueSight Orchestration. Event Orchestration also integrates with BMC Remedy IT Service Management for incident and change management operations.

Event Orchestration provides the following enhancements: 

  • TrueSight Orchestration component registration in TrueSight Presentation Server
  • Context-aware actions for relevant events in TrueSight Operations Management
  • New use case for Host Down type of events, in addition to the out-of-the-box Service Down use case
  • Intelligence to detect and update incidents created using BMC Service Resolution
  • Support for adding custom Orchestration actions for any event
