Requesting for a new automation

When an event or a situation in BMC Helix AIOps matches the trigger conditions defined in the automation policies in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation, automation actions are displayed against the open events. As an operator, you can run such automation actions for open events (causal or situational), which execute the remediation actions in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation. If there are no automations for an event, you can raise requests and automation engineers create policies in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation.

You can also run automations while performing probable cause analysis for impacted services. For more information, see  Performing causal analysis of impacted services Open link
