3 ways to get rich service tickets

Information is power, and the quality of information you have at hand impacts your ability to take the right action.


This certainly applies to IT service ticketing. Let’s take a brief look at some the ways HP Operations Orchestration (OO) can enhance service tickets by providing more information to HP Service Manager (SM) or a third-party tool.


In the IT environment, enriching a ticket requires querying multiple sources, especially the CMDB. Because OO coordinates automated tasks across teams, tools, and environments, in many ways it is already perfectly set up for the task.


How it works


Let’s say an alert comes into HP Operations Manager (OM), but before opening the SM ticket, you want to gather data from the repository of a non-HP product or do some type of correlation.


Or, in order to open a SM ticket, the data for the custom-built fields is required, such as asset information. This information could be available from an asset database, but OM might not have it or cannot pass into the ticket. In such cases, OO can query the repository for the required information.


In addition, before assigning a ticket, OO looks up CMDB timetables for when to page and whom to page.


HP OO’s automation capabilities greatly enhances how OM and SM integrate, and provides essential high quality information to your service ticketing processes.
