23.2.01


Support for BMC Helix ITSM on-premises 20.02 for Proactive Service Resolution

You can configure Proactive Service Resolution for BMC Helix ITSM on-premises version 20.02. 

While using this version, the solution only supports Level 1 (L1): Event-based service resolution and Level 2 (L2): Infrastructure-based service resolution. 

For more information about supported versions, see System requirements. For more information about Proactive Service Resolution, see Configuring Proactive Service Resolution for incidents


Automated incident creation supported for ServiceNow application

Use Proactive Service Resolution to automate the process of creating incidents for critical events in the ServiceNow Incident Management application. 

Based on the configuration, an incident is created in ServiceNow Incident Management for critical events generated in BMC Helix Operations Management and an information event is generated in BMC Helix Operations Management automatically. Every time the incident is updated, the information event gets updated and informs operators about the current status. For ServiceNow, the solution only supports creating Level 1 (only incident) and Level 2 (incident with the associated configuration item) incidents.

User experience improvements 

The following improvements are made to the product to enhance your overall product experience. 

Improved experience while accessing the console

Error messages, such as 401 Unauthorized, or HTTP failure response, no longer appear when you log out and log back in to the BMC Helix Intelligent Automation console via BMC Helix Portal.

Automation policy improvement

Information messages added on the UI inform you about the impact of clearing the Generate Information Event on execution check box while creating automation policies. This helps you to decide whether you want to generate information events or skip them to reduce event noise. 

For more information, see Creating automation policies.

Proactive Service Resolution improvement

You can specify multiple same values while using any Custom field mappings in the Proactive Service Resolution solution. This allows you to add conditions in the solution that match your requirement. 

For more information, see Configuring Proactive Service Resolution for incidents and Configuring Proactive Service Resolution for TMF-compliant trouble tickets.
