The following topics are provided:

Before you begin

Perform the required tasks.

  • Install the following applications:
    • BMC Control-M Enterprise Manager
    • BMC Remedy IT Service Management (BMC Remedy ITSM) 8.1 Service Pack 2 or BMC Remedy ITSM 9.0 or BMC Remedy ITSM 9.0 SP1
    • BMC ProactiveNet 9.5 SP2
    • BMC Service Resolution 3.5 for BMC Remedy ITSM
    • BMC Service Resolution 3.5 for ProactiveNet
  • Publish web services on the BMC Remedy Mid Tier
  • Install and configure the EM API in the %EM_HOME% \ctmticket directory on the BMC Control-M Workload Automation system.
  • BMC recommends that the EM API is installed and configured in the %EM_HOME%\ctmticket directory
  • Set the EM_HOME environment variable to the <Control-M_patchInstallFolder\Default folder
  • Download the emapi-800-nt.zip file. For more information, see BMC Control-M Workload Automation API Guide.

Note

In the Examples folder in the API distribution folder, you can find sample XML documents that contain invalid passwords. You can safely remove the invalid passwords before using these files. Similarly, the sample keystore password in the jacorb.properties file is used with SSL communications and can be safely ignored or blanked in the file before use.
