Setting up VM requests through BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management


Using the BMC Digital Workplace with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management integration, users can view and request available virtual machine (VM) offerings as part of BMC Digital Workplace Catalog. The administrator creates sections and then adds BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management offerings to the section. The provisioned services are visible to end users on the My Stuff tab. If a user clicks a service, a BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management window opens where the user can manage the service. Pending, Failed, and other status messages appear in the user's BMC Digital Workplace timeline.

Note

This integration is available for the BMC Digital Workplace end user console only and for on-premises BMC Digital Workplace installations.

Considerations

  • If you change the superuser password in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management, you must also update the password in the BMC Digital Workplace configuration. For more information, see To configure the integration with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management below.
  • If BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management uses SSL, you must copy the root certificate for the self-signed or third-party certificate to the BMC Digital Workplace system, and import it to the cacerts SSL file in the Java used by BMC Digital Workplace.
  • To view the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management offerings in BMC Digital Workplace, the BMC Digital Workplace administrator must also have the entitlements and permissions configured in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
  • If you want users to be able to access BMC Cloud Management Lifecycle from BMC Digital Workplace, those users must have the same user names on the BMC Remedy Action Request System server (AR System server) for BMC Digital Workplace and the AR System server for BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. Additionally, the users should belong to respective BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management groups and tenants in BMC Digital Workplace.
  • You can configure BMC Distributed Server Option (DSO) workflows to synchronize the users that are created in BMC Digital Workplace with users in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. You can also configure DSO workflows with an escalation so that all the existing users are transferred to BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management first. For more information, see Integrating with Corporate ITSM for Foundation data and Tenants in the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management documentation.
  • If you use DSO to move users, manage the users from the BMC Digital Workplace AR System server. Otherwise, you run the risk of overwriting BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management user permissions when DSO migrates users from BMC Digital Workplace to BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. On the BMC Digital Workplace AR System server, create BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management groups and roles. That way, you can assign BMC Digital Workplace users the appropriate BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management group permissions, and then transfer the users to BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management with appropriate groups in place.

For more information, see the following topics in the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management documentation:

  • Managing entitlement packages
  • Updating an existing user account with cloud administrator permissions
