Integrating TrueSight Infrastructure Management or ProactiveNet with Remedy OnDemand

You can integrate TrueSight Infrastructure Management or ProactiveNet with Remedy OnDemand using the HPD_IncidentServiceInterface web service. For information about using the web service, see Integrating directly with Remedy ITSM using web services.

This integration supports Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 of service resolution. For information about the service resolution levels, see BMC Service Resolution levels.

Remedy OnDemand hybrid environment

Using a sample scenario, the following diagram illustrates the information flow in a hybrid SaaS environment. For example, ProactiveNet is installed as an on-premises product, whereas Remedy is hosted in a SaaS environment.

  1. ProactiveNet detects a degradation in the response time of a router.
  2. An alert is triggered and routed to ProactiveNet.
  3. Using the event and the CI information, an Infrastructure incident is created in Remedy OnDemand through the web service.
  4. The Incident ID is sent back to ProactiveNet.

    For information about importing the required SSL certificates, see Importing SSL certificates.

    Note

    ProactiveNet pulls the incident information from Remedy ITSM through the HPD_OutbouboundEventInterface web service. For more information, see Using HPD_ IncidentOutboundEvent web service.

  5. An IncidentInfo event is created.
  6. Router issue is resolved and the corresponding event is closed in ProactiveNet.
  7. The IncidentInfo event is closed and the details are sent to Remedy OnDemand.
  8. A Service Desk technician closes the incident.

Configuring the integration between TrueSight Infrastructure Management or ProactiveNet and Remedy OnDemand

Note

Ensure that you have installed the BMC Gateway Client SuiteKit 1.0.00 before proceeding with this integration. Contact your Remedy OnDemand administrator for the Gateway Client installer and the relevant instructions.

After you install BMC Service Resolution, you must configure the integration between ProactiveNet and Incident Management. This integration involves the following activities:

  1. Publish the CI information from CMDB to ProactiveNet. See Integrate CMDB with BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management/BMC ProactiveNet.
  2. Integrate ProactiveNet with Remedy OnDemand. See Integrate BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management/BMC ProactiveNet with BMC Remedy OnDemand.
