The information in this article is the intellectual property of xMatters and is intended only for use with xMatters products by xMatters customers and their employees. Further, this intellectual property is proprietary and must not be reused or resold.
With the xMatters integration, the appropriate technician can be notified directly via voice, email, pager, BlackBerry, or other device. Information about the failure will be presented to the event resolver and decisions can be made in real-time.
Once a response is selected on the recipient’s remote device, xMatters will update the HP Service Manager incident in real-time. The benefit is that this process is immediate – significantly faster than the time required for staff to notice the failures or malfunctions, determine who is on call, and manually notify the right person.
In addition, the ability to take simple actions on the event from any device gives the event resolver a quick way to deal with many issues and communicate to other team members the current state of the event.
During the process, every notification, response, and action is logged in xMatters. In addition, xMatters automatically annotates the original incident with status information.
The benefit is that this process is immediate and may be done remotely – providing users with an efficient method of handling HP Service Manager events from any mobile device. In addition, the integration can be updated to notify xMatters Users on their mobile devices with a link to the mobile view of the event, allowing the user to update the event remotely.
The following components must be installed prior to installing the integration:
- xMatters communication plan 5.1 (patch 003 or later)
- xMatters integration agent 5.1 (patch 003 or later)
- HP Service Manager Incident Management 9.3.4
