Invoking a process in BMC Helix Innovation Studio

You create an automation policy that includes actions for invoking one or more processes in BMC Helix Innovation Studio. This topic provides an example of creating a policy for invoking a sample Get Issues in Jira process in BMC Helix Innovation Studio based on an incoming event in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation. 

While creating an action, you can use an event stored in the BMC Helix Intelligent Automation database or provide an event in a JSON format. 

To add the BMC Helix Innovation Studio process action to a policy

  1. In the BMC Helix Intelligent Automation console, click Policies and the click Create Automation Policy.
  2. In the Policy Information section, enter a unique name and an optional description for the policy. 
  3. Select Manual or Automatic depending upon whether you want to execute the policy manually or automatically based on the incoming events.
  4. In the Trigger section, click Browse and perform one of the following steps to select an event:
    • From the Select Event Type tab, select an existing event type, and click Done.
    • On the Paste Event JSON tab, enter event in the JSON format, and click Done.

      {"event_type": "innovation_studio_get_all_jira_issues_event"}
  5. In the Trigger Condition text box, build the following expression to match the trigger condition to the event:

    "$?($.\"event\".\"event_type\" == \"innovation_studio_get_all_jira_issues_event\")"
  6. To add system or custom tags to the policy, perform the following steps:
    1. System tags: Select one or more tags from the list of available system tags. 
      Based on the event, some system tags are displayed.
    2. Custom tags: In the Tags (Optional) section, enter a key-value pair. 
      Tag key should start with an alphabet and end with an alphanumeric character. Key supports alphanumeric characters and periods, dashes, and underscores. 
  7. To add action to the policy, click Add Action and perform the following steps by using the action wizard:
    1. From the Pick an automation tool section, click the connector name.
      Only configured connectors are displayed here. The wizard takes you to the next step to select an action. 
    2. Click Select against the BMC Helix Innovation Studio action.
    3. Click Sync Actions
      All available process in BMC Helix Innovation Studio appear. 
    4. Select the Get all issues in Jira action.
      This action does not require a request body. The action name and the event parameters appear in the add action dialog box.  

    5. Click Done.
      The added action appears in the Action Configuration section on the Create Automation Policies page.
  8. In the Estimated Savings section, enter an approximate time (in minutes) and money (in USD) that you may save by automating this action.
  9. Select Publish Policy and click Save to publish the policy.

    This policy runs every time an event that matches the trigger conditions appears in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation.
