Integrating with BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management

The BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management product proactively detects and automatically resolves IT performance issues and sub-optimal configurations before users and services are negatively impacted. Alerts are generated for any events or changes that occur in the environment. Typically, alerts are generated even for intentional changes related to the infrastructure, for example, a CI that is unavailable due to a scheduled maintenance, causing unnecessary action to resolve these issues.

The integration of BMC Change Management with BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management allows you to configure event notification parameters so that alerts are not generated for events due to planned changes to a CI or a service.

The current integration enables you to perform the following actions:

  • Configure BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management to receive notifications for Change Event types (Change event or Task event or both) that occur on SIEM enabled CI Types.
  • Notify BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management of:
    • CIs for which a change is planned or occurred in the past, but logged now.
    • Change Task events for the tasks related to CIs.
  • Manage errors and queue undelivered events.
  • Send automatic email notification to preconfigured BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management and Change Management application administrators in case of errors.
  • Use secured communication channels.

Integration requirements

For the integration to work seamlessly, the following tasks must be completed:
