This integration is no longer supported because the management product is no longer supported by the vendor, and/or the version of xMatters (fka AlarmPoint) used for the integration is no longer supported. The integration is available here for use and modification by the customer.
With the AlarmPoint integration, the appropriate approver can be notified directly via voice, email, pager, BlackBerry, or other device. Information about the change will be presented to the approving groups and decisions can be made in real-time.
Once a response is selected on the recipient’s remote device, AlarmPoint will update the Service Manager change in real- time. The benefit is that this process is immediate – significantly faster than the time required for staff to process the request, determine who is responsible for approval, and manually notify the right people. In addition, the ability to take simple actions on the change request from any device gives the approver a quick way to assess and communicate to other team members the current state of the change.
During the process, every notification, response, and action is logged in AlarmPoint. In addition, AlarmPoint automatically annotates the original Service Manager change with status information.
The AlarmPoint product features a self-service web user interface to allow accurate assignment of responsible personnel for each job. AlarmPoint also includes an optional enhanced Subscription panel that allows both managed and self-subscription to Service Manager changes. This Subscription panel queries the Service Manager Server directly in real time to retrieve the lists of categories, subcategories, services, and affected CIs, removing the need to create and maintain this list.
With the AlarmPoint Mobile Gateway, the appropriate technician can create, view, and update Service Manager messages directly via a mobile device’s web browser. Information about Service Manager messages can be displayed on the mobile device and updated in real-time.
The benefit is that this process is immediate and may be done remotely – providing users with an efficient method of handling Service Manager issues or change requests from any mobile device. In addition, the Service Manager integration can be updated to notify AlarmPoint Users on their mobile device with a link to the mobile view of the message, allowing the user to update the message remotely.
The following components must be installed prior to installing the integration:
- AlarmPoint 4.0 (patch 009 or later) with a valid Mobile Gateway license
