Enabling automatic creation of service requests in BMC Helix Digital Workplace Advanced from cases

As a case business analyst, you can configure BMC Helix Business Workflows to create a corresponding service request in BMC Helix Digital Workplace Advanced for a BMC Helix Business Workflows case.

The service request includes the following details:

  • Details - Includes when the case was submitted, last updated, the phone number of the requester, and the company of the requester. 
  • Comments - Displays the activity notes added to the case in BMC Helix Digital Workplace Advanced. Any comments added to the service request are also displayed, and added to the Activity notes of the case.
