Integrating MyIT with BMC HR Case Management

BMC HR Case Management, built on the Remedy platform, enables HR organizations to reduce costs, improve productivity, and provide a better overall user experience. Self-service users use MyIT to open HR cases and to search HR knowledge articles.

Integrating MyIT with BMC HR Case Management includes the following tasks:

StageTasksWhere to find details
Prerequisite for BMC HR Case Management server

BMC HR Case Management can be installed on either the same server with BMC Remedy IT Service Management (BMC Remedy ITSM) or on a separate server. The BMC HR Case Management server requires BMC Remedy Action Request System (BMC Remedy AR System) 9.1.

If you have separate servers, the Application Service Password must be the same for both servers. Otherwise, users will not be able to login to BMC HR Case Management.

Installing in the BMC Remedy ITSM Suite deployment documentation

Resetting the Application Service password in the BMC Remedy AR System documentation

Installation
  1. Install BMC HR Case Management. BMC HR Case Management 4.7  must be installed on a BMC Remedy Action Request System (BMC Remedy AR System) 9.1.00.001 or later server. As part of installation, you are prompted for the HR Case Management master account. The installer creates this account on the BMC Remedy AR System server.
  2. If you you have not yet installed MyIT, install MyIT. During the installation, respond to the following prompt:
    As part of installation, you are prompted for the BMC Remedy AR System server. If you have separate servers for BMC Remedy ITSM and for BMC HR Case Management, select the server that has BMC Remedy ITSM installed. Note that the BMC Remedy ITSM server must already have the user experience patch installed. If you have BMC HR Case Management installed on same AR System server as BMC Remedy ITSM, the MyIT installer automatically detects BMC HR Case Management and integrates with it. 
  3. If you installed MyIT prior to BMC HR Case Management, or if you upgraded from an earlier version of MyIT, you must configure the connection to BMC HR Case Management.
    1. From the MyIT Administration Console, select More > Configuration.
    2. Enable the two BMC HR Case Management providers: HRCM - service catalog pluggable provider and HRCM - knowledge pluggable provider.
    3. For both BMC HR Case Management providers, enter the host name, port, and password.
    4. Reload the providers.
    5. Create BMC HR Case Management datastore and configure MyIT-HRCM integration.
      1. Access BMC Remedy Mid Tier of BMC Remedy AR System on which BMC HR Case management is installed.
      2. Login with BMC Remedy AR System administrator credentials.
      3. Navigate to Applications > BMC MyIT Administration > MyIT Administration Console.
        A separate backend MyIT Administration Console allows you to perform the manual integration. The BMC Remedy AR System  server with this backend console is the server that hosts the MyIT data access component.

      4. Create a new BMC HR Case Management datastore.
        1. On the Applications tab, in the left pane, click Persistent Data Stores.
        2. Click the + icon.
        3. Enter the BMC Remedy AR System server host name and port of the AR System server, where BMC HR Case management is installed. The Admin password is same as the Application Service Password of the AR System server.

        4. Click Save.
      5. Enable the integration with BMC HR Case Management.
        1. On the Applications tab, in the left pane, click Applications.
        2. For the Enabled option, select Yes.
        3. In the Data Store drowpdown list, select the newly created datastore, and click Save.
      6. Restart the Apache Tomcat web server for BMC Remedy with Smart IT and MyIT.

Note: Ensure that HR Case - User Details pluggable provider and User Details pluggable provider are not simultaneously enabled. If you have installed MyIT with only BMC HR Case Management, enable HR Case - User Details pluggable provider. For all other installation scenarios, enable User Details pluggable provider.

Post-installation configuration
  1. Add the MyIT Admin group to the HR Case Management master users, as well as to MyIT administrators.
  2. (Optional) Install and configure Remedy Single Sign On.
    Best Practice - When you configure single sign on, users do not have to login multiple times. If you do not configure single sign on, when MyIT users access an e-Form (from BMC HR Case Management) or an AIF (from BMC Service Request Management), they will be prompted to login again.
Configuration and administration
  1. (Optional) Create sections in the Catalog.
  2. Add HR solutions and knowledge articles to sections in the Catalog. HR solutions can include eForms, which replace paper and PDF forms. You can also add sections to the catalog for the most viewed HR solutions and for the most viewed HR articles.
  3. (Optional) Configure one or more calendars for in-person appointments with HR.
  4. Create users.
    If you have separate servers for BMC Remedy ITSM and for BMC HR Case Management, user accounts on the  COL:CORE:People form (on the BMC HR Case Management server) must all have the same user accounts on the CTM:People form (on the BMC Remedy ITSM server). When you have both BMC Remedy ITSM and BMC HR Case Management, the profile for users on MyIT comes from the CTM:People form on BMC Remedy ITSM. Accounts on the BMC HR Case Management server are required for self-serve users to open HR cases and to search HR knowledge articles. If someone has an account on the BMC Remedy ITSM server but not on the BMC HR Case Management server, that person will be able to access only non-HR catalog items. If someone has an account on the BMC HR Case Management server, but not on the BMC Remedy ITSM server, that person will not be able to login to MyIT.

Using

Self-service users use MyIT to search for HR solutions and knowledge articles, and to open HR cases. As part of HR solutions, they can complete eForms, which replace paper and PDF forms.

HR agents use BMC HR Case Management to manage and respond to HR cases.
