Smart IT troubleshooting

This topic contains troubleshooting tips for issues you might encounter in Smart IT.

Troubleshooting information for provider action

Filter log: You should check the filter log to ensure that the back end filter is executed. The filter log should be enabled in the database folder under the AR Server installation directory (<AR System Administration or Remedy Management console-> Log management>). In server group environment, Filter Log should be enabled on all AR Server.

Console log: Also you can check the Console log to see the fields that have changed while executing the provider action. When any expression is executed, the smartit/app/?debug-1 parameter in the URL displays the result in the Console.

Smartit log: You can check the smartit log for any other error, like provider error. 

Remedy IT Service Management filter: You can also check the filter that you have created while performing the steps documented in the Configuring and adding business logic of provider action in Remedy IT Service Management.

iCloud configuration is not enabled for Smart IT provisioning profile

BMC Digital Workplace service request is not found in Smart IT

While searching BMC Digital Workplace Catalog service request in Smart IT, if you cannot find it in Smart IT, search the service request in the SBE:Request vendor form. If the service request is not available in the vendor form, that means that service request does not exist. Search by service request ID or by name. In the vendor form, % search does not work.

In case of test connection failure in the SBE:ConnectionConfig form of ITSM, check the following log file to find out the failure reason:

Added custom fields to Asset View are not visible in Smart IT

  • If a field is a part of the AST:Attributes form and if it exists in the AST:BaseElement form as well as in any other asset class (like AST:Printer), it becomes available for customization only for the Generic Area in Smart IT and not for the Type-Specific Area.
  • If you have created a required field in the AST:Attributes form, you need to ensure that it is either present in all the asset classes or there is a mechanism setup for the default value.

The Deployment application is stopped

The filedeployer folder is located under the Smart_IT folder within your Smart IT installation folder. Use the following steps if the Java version is updated and the Deployment application is stopped:

  1. Navigate to the SMARTIT_HOME\Smart_IT\filedeployer\conf folder.
  2. Open armonitor.cfg file.
  3. Update the JRE path in the armonitor.cfg file.
  4. Open the command prompt from this location:
  5. Set the value of the JAVA_HOME environment variable to your JRE installation path.
  6. Run the following command to start the Deployment application:
    • (Windows) filedeployer.bat start 
    • (Linux) start

Deployment package failure

If Smart IT file deployer is unable to register the Service with AR, and gets ARERR 90 while making Service UP, the D2P package deployment will not be successful. You need to restart the Smart IT file deployer service for making the deployment work.

Failure in adding new style in the Knowledge Template Style

While adding new style, in the Additional CSS Styling, the limit is set as 255 on the database table column. If it crosses this limit, you get the following error:


Please run the alter command in your environment to increase character limit of style column as per your requirement:

Alter table [SmartIT].[SmartIT_Business].[KNOWLEDGE_TEMPLATESTYLE] ALTER Column STYLE nvarchar(<your preferred limit>);

Error in the Update Assignment screen in Android mobile client  

In the Smart IT Android mobile client, Company, Organization and Groups selections are available on a single Update Assignment screen.

When the chunk size exceeds the value specified in Centralized Configuration, the following message is displayed:

Too many entries to display all. Start typing to filter the list.

Error while displaying the primary contact for an asset 

After creating an asset and associating it to a user with any role relationship in Smart IT, if the login ID of this person is removed by using the Change to Non Support or Remove Login ID option in the CTM:People form in Remedy Mid Tier, the primary contact field shows the following error on refreshing the asset in Smart IT:

You do not have permission to view the owner.

Workaround: In Remedy Mid Tier, open the CTM:People form, search for the person whose login ID was removed. Delete the asset relationship from the people profile and add it again.

Error in the incident view widget configuration

If you remove the Affected Service widget, add the Service member field, and save the view, after opening an Incident, if you type a search text on the Service field, it does not return any response.


  1. Create a new regular character field (for example, NewDataSetID) on HPD:Help Desk form.
  2. Use this field in the Menu qualification in place of the current display-only field.
  3. Bring the above field in the Incident View in Smart IT, and set properties hidden=true & set value =‘BMC.ASSET’.

In the ITSM, as you have changed the menu qualification to use the new character field, the value needs to be populated by using the active link/filter.
