Synchronizing custom field values for integrations

As an administrator, use BMC Helix iPaaS, powered by Jitterbit to integrate BMC Helix ITSM with vendor (third-party) applications. Use the out-of-the-box integration templates that are available for supported integrations and deploy them to your BMC Helix iPaaS environment. The integration templates contain predefined project variables that you update based on your system details. The project variables help you establish a connection and data transfer between BMC Helix ITSM and a third-party application. Out of the box, some fields between BMC Helix ITSM and third-party applications are mapped so that you can start integrating the applications. However, you can map custom fields between BMC Helix ITSM and a third-party application.

Process overview

The following image shows the steps to map a custom field in third-party application with a BMC Helix ITSM field:

Also, in the third-party application field mapping for the required BMC Helix ITSM ticket type, update the fields in the Remedy to Vendor Sync Fields or Vendor to Remedy Sync Fields section. This ensures that the mapped fields are updated when you update tickets.
