Integrating by using BMC Helix Developer Tools
As a tenant administrator, you can use BMC Helix Developer Toolsto integrate with multiple products to collect event, topology, and services data. You can view this data in BMC Helix Operations Management, BMC Helix Discovery, and BMC Helix AIOps.
BMC Helix Developer Tools enables you to:
- Integrate with TrueSight Operations Management to monitor events and services.
- Build custom integrations for the third-party products for which out-of-the-box integrations are not available.
- Collect logs from files.
You integrate with a product by using a connector, which is a container based on Fluentd that can host multiple integrations. It facilitates data collection and consumption from the integrated products.
For example, if you want to get TrueSight Operations Management events into BMC Helix Platform to monitor these events, you can configure the TrueSight Operations Management integration easily by using a BMC Helix Developer Tools connector.
As a tenant administrator, use BMC Helix Developer Tools to connect to various BMC and third-party products to get events, topology, and services data, as described in the following table:

After you configure an integration, you can enable, disable, or delete it.
Identify deprecated integrations, and configure these integrations by using BMC Helix Intelligent Integrations
The Dynatrace and SolarWinds integrations that were configured before the 22.1 release are now deprecated.
You can edit a deprecated integration instance. However, you cannot configure a new instance of the deprecated integration. BMC recommends that you use BMC Helix Intelligent Integrations to configure these integrations afresh.
For more information, see Managing deprecated integrations.
