Introduction

Does your organization use BMC Atrium Orchestrator for Runbook Automation? Do you have any runbook automation processes that require manual input for actions such as a server restart, server shutdown, instantiation of a new virtual machine, etc?  If you said yes to both, then you need the BMC Atrium Orchestrator Community Integration!

This integration was developed by xMatters and BMC presales engineers as a proof-of-concept for a large Atrium Orchestrator user.  This user executes many Atrium Orchestrator workflows a day, some of which contain workflow steps that require end-user response.  Their requirement was to be able to get an engineer to take action on manual workflow process step as quickly as possible.  With xMatters two-way notification capabilities, the appropriate engineer can be notified of the  workflow process requiring manual action and then take action accordingly from any supported xMatters communication device.  Imagine an engineer restarting a server by pressing 1 on his touchtone keypad!  Well, imagine no more!
