2 Installing and Configuring the Remedy Help Desk 6 Connector

The Remedy Connector integrates Remedy Help Desk 6.x with Enterprise Manager. Using this connector, you can create a Remedy trouble ticket, update an existing ticket, or close a ticket based on alerts in Enterprise Manager.

This chapter provides the following information for setting up and configuring the Remedy Connector:

Introduction to the Remedy Connector

The Remedy Connector integrates Enterprise Manager with Remedy Help Desk through either an HTTP or HTTPS connection. You can create, update, or close tickets based on only the following types of alerts in Enterprise Manager:

The following sections explain various Remedy Connector concepts that you must understand before you start using the Remedy Connector.

Auto Ticketing

Whenever an alert is triggered in Enterprise Manager, the Remedy Connector can automatically open or update a ticket. You can specify the set of alerts for which tickets must be opened and the alert severity for which this should happen.

You can do this in Notification Rules, the user-defined rules that define the criteria by which notifications should be sent for alerts.

See Also:

"Configuring Notifications" in Oracle Enterprise Manager Advanced Configuration Guide

After the ticket is opened, any subsequent update of the alert, such as a change in alert severity, causes an annotation to the ticket. After you clear the alert (severity is set to Clear), you can optionally close the alert.

Manual Ticketing

From the Enterprise Manager console, you can manually open a Remedy ticket based on an open alert in Enterprise Manager. The Remedy Connector populates the ticket with details based on the alert and the ticket template selected.

Ticket Templates

Ticket templates are transformation style sheets in XSLT format that transform Enterprise Manager alerts to ticket format before the requests are sent to Remedy Help Desk.

These template specify how Enterprise Manager alert attributes can populate the fields of a Remedy ticket. A ticket template helps in the mapping of Enterprise Manager Alert fields into Remedy ticket fields.

In Auto Ticketing, a notification method is created for each registered ticket template. The selected notification method determines which ticket template is used when a notification is sent out to the Connector. In the case of manual ticketing, you have to select a ticket template before submitting a request to create the ticket.

The Enterprise Manager installation includes some out-of-box ticket templates to facilitate easy usage of this feature.

Grace Period

The grace period provides you with a configuration to prevent the creation of a large number of tickets for frequently reoccurring alerts. For alerts that occur frequently within a relatively short time interval, it is often desirable to open and maintain one trouble ticket that tracks each occurrence of the alert instead of separate tickets each time.

For recurring alerts, the grace period is a time period during which reoccurrences of the same alert update (or re-open) an existing ticket for the alert instead of opening a new ticket.

For example, an alert triggers and a ticket is opened for it. If the grace period is one hour and the alert is cleared at 10:00 a.m., and if the same alert retriggers before 11:00 a.m. (one-hour grace period), the ticket that had been originally created for the alert is updated/reopened rather than creating a new ticket.

Prerequisites

Before using Remedy Connector, ensure that you meet the following prerequisites:

Installing and Uninstalling the Remedy Connector

Remedy Connector is installed as part of the Enterprise Manager base installation. That is, Connector installation is part of the Oracle Management Server (OMS) installation.

After you install Enterprise Manager, when you access the Enterprise Manager console as a Super Administrator, you can see the Remedy Connector in the Management Connector Setup page as shown in Figure 2-1. See "Configuring the Remedy Connector" for instructions.

The default installation is based on default Remedy Web services that do not support any annotation history through Worklog (the history option in the Remedy ticket). For details of Worklog and registering the Worklog template, see "Using Worklog".

To uninstall the Remedy Connector, select it in the Management Connectors page, then click Delete.

Configuring the Remedy Connector

  1. As Super Administrator, from the Enterprise Manager console, click Setup.

    The Overview of Setup page appears.

  2. Click Management Connectors in the left pane.

    The Management Connectors page appears. For the Remedy Connector row, the Configured column should be blank (Figure 2-1).

    Note:

    A check mark instead indicates that the Connector is already configured.
  3. Click the Configure icon for the Remedy Connector.

    The General tab of the Configure Management Connector page appears (Figure 2-2).

  4. Provide the required settings. See "General Settings" for details.

  5. Click OK.

    The Management Connectors page reappears. The row for the Remedy Connector should have a check mark in the Configured column.

  6. Optional: To check for the available ticket templates, click the configure icon again.

  7. Click the Ticket Templates tab.

    All out-of-box ticket templates should appear in the table.

If any of the ticket templates are missing, you can register them using the emctl command from the ORACLE_HOME/bin directory, where ORACLE_HOME is the Oracle home directory of OMS.

Run the following command as a user with execute privilege on emctl and the ability to read the ticket template:

emctl register_ticket_template connector <ticketTemplate.xsl> <server> <port> <database sid/service name for RAC DB> <username> <password> <connectorTypeName> <connectorName> <templateName> <description>

Note:

For multiple OMS installations, you need to run this command only once from any of the OMSs.

Example 2-1

emctl register_ticket_template connector Remedy_DefaultCategory_LowPriority.xsl $emHost $dbPort $dbSID sysman $sysmanPwd "Remedy Connector" "Remedy Connector" "Low Priority Template" "This template creates a ticket with low priority and default categorization"

emctl Parameters

Table 2-1 emctl Parameters

Parameter Description

ticketTemplate.xsl

Fully qualified name of the ticket template file. The file resides in the Connector home directory:

$OMS_HOME/sysman/connector/Remedy_Connector

Oracle recommends that you use intuitive names since there might be notification methods created with the same names and you have to choose one of them when you use the Auto Ticketing feature.

Use xsl as the file extension, since the format is XSLT. For example, Remedy_DefaultCategory_LowPriority.xsl.

If the file is in a different directory, provide the complete path for the file.

server

Host name of the Enterprise Manager repository.

port

Listener port of the repository.

database sid/ Service Name for RAC DB

Repository database instance ID or service name if you are using RAC database as the repository.

General Settings

The following sections explain how to provide various configuration details.

Connection Settings

The Remedy Trouble Ticket connector communicates with the Help Desk through their Web services. Mandatory fields are indicated by an asterisk ( * ).

  • Web Service End Points — End points to createTicket, updateTicket, and getTicket Web services exposed by Remedy Help Desk. See "Web Service Details" for additional details.

    If your Remedy installation does not have an operation to query a ticket by case ID, you need to import the HelpDesk_Query_Service_By_Case_ID.def file into your Remedy instance. This file is located here:

    $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/connector/Remedy Connector

  • Remedy Username — User with the privilege to create, update, and query tickets in Remedy.

  • Remedy Password — Password associated with the supplied Remedy user.

  • Authentication — String that a Remedy administrator sets for additional security. Applies only if the Remedy Administrator has configured it on the Remedy AR server. It communicates with the server if there is a secondary authentication server that can be used to verify the Remedy credentials.

  • Locale — Language of the Remedy system (optional).

  • Time Zone — Time zone of the Remedy AR System Server (optional).

  • Ticket Number — Enter a valid ticket number if you want to test the connection when you save the configuration. There are four possibilities for this field:

    • If you do not enter a ticket number, no message appears on the Management Connectors page after you click OK and the configuration is saved.

    • If you specify the correct Web service end points and enter a valid ticket number, the following message appears on the Management Connectors page after you click OK:

      "Connection test succeeded. The configuration was saved."

    • If you have not previously saved the connector configuration and enter an invalid ticket number, the following message appears on the Management Connectors page after you click OK:

      "Connection test failed. The configuration was saved."

    • If you have saved the connector configuration before, specify incorrect Web service end points, and specify either a valid or invalid ticket number, the following message appears on the Management Connectors page after you click OK:

      "Connection test failed. The configuration was not saved."

    See Also:

    Section "Remedy User preferences settings" in the Remedy Remedy AR System Server product manual Remedy Action Request System 6.3 - Developing AR System Applications: Advanced

Web Console Settings

Web Console settings are required if you want the Connector to provide links to Remedy Help Desk tickets created by Enterprise Manager in the context of an alert.

To enable this functionality, provide the following Web console settings.

  • Enable web console — Check this box to enable launching of the Remedy ticket page within context from Enterprise Manager.

  • ARServer Name — Remedy AR Server name.

  • HelpDesk Case Form Name — Remedy form name that the Remedy Web Services (you configured the connector to use) is based on. The Remedy default Help Desk Web services, for example, use the form HPD:HelpDesk.

  • Web Server — The name or IP address of the server that hosts Remedy Mid-Tier.

Grace Period

You can enable and disable the grace period and configure its value. By default, the grace period is disabled. See "Grace Period" for details. This setting applies to all alerts the Remedy Connector processes.

Working with Ticket Templates

The following sections provide information about registering, removing, replacing, and adding ticket templates.

Registering Ticket Templates

You need to register ticket templates before they are recognized in Enterprise Manager. For Auto Ticketing, a notification method is created for each registered ticket template and a ticket is created and updated based on the ticket template associated with the selected notification method. For manual ticketing, registered ticket templates are available for selection.

All registered ticket templates are displayed in the Configure Management Connector Ticket Templates page. By default, all out-of-box ticket templates are registered. To register additional ticket templates that you create, see step 7 in Section 2.4, "Configuring the Remedy Connector" on page 2-4.

Viewing Template Code

Click a template name to view the XSLT code for the template.

The ticket templates are in XSLT format. A basic knowledge of XSLT is required to understand the code.

Removing a Template

To remove a template, do the following:

Important:

If the template you delete has a notification rule associated with it, the notification fails.
  1. Select the template and click Remove.

  2. At the prompt, confirm the removal.

  3. Before you exit the page, click OK for the deletion to take effect.

    Note:

    Unless you click OK before you exit, the template is not deleted. Next time you go to the Ticket Template page, the templates reappear.

    Though the ticket template is removed from the Enterprise Manager repository, it is still available on OMS in the Connector home directory. You can re-register the ticket template later if required.

Replacing Templates

To replace an existing ticket template, do the following:

  1. Delete the ticket template.

  2. Register the new template using emctl.

Adding New Templates

To add templates other than the out-of-box templates Oracle provides, you should define new templates and register them using emctl.

Re-registering Removed Connectors

The Remedy Connector is automatically registered when Enterprise Manager is installed. However, you may remove this connector at some point and then want to subsequently re-register it.

To re-register a connector that has been removed:

  1. From the Oracle Management Server (OMS) host command window, run the following emctl command from the $ORACLE_HOME/bin directory:

    emctl extract_jar connector <jarfile> <connectorType.xml> <OracleHome>
    

    This extracts the .jar file to this folder:

    $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/connector/Remedy_Connector/
    

    For example:

    emctl extract_jar connector momconnector.jar "Remedy Connector" $ORACLE_HOME
    
  2. Run the following emctl command from the directory $ORACLE_HOME:

    emctl register_connector connector <connectorType.xml> <server> <port> <database sid> <username> <oracleHome>
    

    For example:

    emctl register_connector connector $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/connector/Remedy_Connector/RemedyConnector.xml/host port database_SID username/$ORACLE_HOME
    
  3. Perform step 7 in Section 2.4, "Configuring the Remedy Connector" on page 2-4.

Note:

For multiple Oracle Management Servers, you only need to register the connector once from any of the Oracle Management Servers.

Creating Remedy Trouble Tickets

You can create trouble tickets automatically or manually. The following sections explain how to create both types.

Automatically Creating a Trouble Ticket

Perform the following steps to automatically create a trouble ticket:

  1. Review the Out-of-Box Templates.

  2. Select an appropriate ticket template with the desired mapping of Enterprise Manager alert fields to the Remedy ticket fields.

  3. If you do not have a ticket template that satisfies your requirement, create one and register it.

  4. Create a notification rule using the following steps:

    Important:

    Do not select more than one ticket template for this notification rule.
    1. From the Enterprise Manager console, click Preferences.

    2. In the left pane, under Notification, click Rules, then Create.

    3. In the Create Notification Rule General page, specify the rule name, a description, and the targets for which this rule should apply.

    4. In the Create Notification Rule Availability page, select the availability states for which you want to create tickets.

    5. In the Create Notification Rule Metrics page, select the metrics and their associated alert severities for which you want to create and update tickets.

      Ensure that you select all relevant alert severities if you want to update the ticket when the alert severity changes. For example, to open a ticket for a critical alert on the CPU Utilization(%) metric and the ticket is to be updated if the CPU Utilization(%) changes to warning or clear severity, in the notification rule select Critical, Warning, or Clear severities for the CPU Utilization(%) metric.

    6. In the Create Notification Rule Methods page, choose the ticket template from the Advanced Notification Methods table (Figure 2–3).

      In the table, registered ticket templates appear as Java Callback type notification methods under the same name as the ticket template's file name. This ticket template is used to open tickets for all availability and metric alerts specified in this notification rule.

      This makes the ticket templates available for use to open tickets.

      See Also:

      "Configuring Notifications" in Oracle Enterprise Manager Advanced Configuration Guide

The following process occurs after you create the notification rule for your alerts:

  • A notification is sent to the Remedy Connector when a metric alert triggers that matches your rule. The Remedy connector creates/updates a ticket according to the ticket template as set in the notification rule.

  • The ticket is created or updated on the Remedy Trouble Ticket system.

  • In Enterprise Manager, the alert annotation is updated. A comment is added to the Metric Details page of the alert to indicate that a ticket was created or updated, along with the ticket ID and ticket page URL.

A ticket is updated if there is an existing active ticket for an alert. In Figure 2-4, the first screen shows the ticket in Remedy console, and the second screen shows the alert as displayed in Enterprise Manager.

Surrounding text describes Figure 2-4 .
Surrounding text describes Figure 2-4 .

Manually Creating a Trouble Ticket

Perform the following steps to manually create a trouble ticket:

  1. After a metric alert occurs, go to the associated metric details page for the alert. To access this page, click the alert message in the Enterprise Manager console (Figure 2-5).

  2. Click the Create/View Ticket link in the Related Links section.

    The Create Ticket page appears if no active ticket exists for the alert.

  3. Select a ticket template and then click Submit (Figure 2-6).

    If you do not see the desired template, you can register one using the emctl command. See "Registering Ticket Templates".

    If creating or updating the ticket is successful, the ticket ID appears in the Last Comment column of the Alert History table for the metric alert.If the Web console settings are configured and enabled, the ticket ID appears as a link to the ticket page in the Remedy Help Desk. If there is no annotation, the ticket creation fails and error information is logged in the file emoms.log.

Note:

You cannot manually update the ticket using Remedy Connector. You have to manually update the ticket in the Remedy AR server for any subsequent alert change.

Navigating Between Remedy and Enterprise Manager

The following sections explain how to switch from one console to the other.

Navigating from Remedy to Enterprise Manager

From a ticket page, click the link in the Description field to the Alert Details page in the ticket message body (Figure 2-7). This takes you to the Enterprise Manager console login page. After you provide the Enterprise Manager user name and password, you are forwarded to the alert related to this ticket.

Note:

The Enterprise Manager user whose name you specify should at least have View privileges on the target on which the alert was raised.

On the Remedy console, if the URL appears as text, you need to cut and paste the URL into the browser.

Figure 2-7 Alert Details in Remedy Console

Surrounding text describes Figure 2-7 .

Navigating from the Enterprise Manager to Remedy

  1. In the Enterprise Manager console, click the alert message to go to the metric details page for the alert.

  2. In the Alert History table, locate the ticket ID link in the Last Comment column.

  3. (If not found) Click the icon in the Details column to get more information about the alert.

  4. On the page that appears, locate the ticket ID in the Alert Details table.

  5. Click the ticket ID link. You are forwarded to the Remedy Web console login page.

  6. Provide valid Remedy account details.

    The ticket page associated with this alert is displayed.

Note:

If you do not use the Remedy Web console, uncheck the Enable web console option in the Web Console Settings section so that ticket ID is shown in plain text. Otherwise, it is displayed as a link that does not work.

Out-of-Box Templates

This section provides details on the out-of-box ticket templates shipped along with the Remedy Connector. The ticket templates specify the mappings between Enterprise Manager alert attributes and Remedy ticket attributes.

All out-of-box templates cause the following actions to occur when a you create a ticket for an alert:

Following are the out-of-box templates:

Following are the out-of-box templates with the AutoClose suffixed to the file names. They set the ticket status to Close when the event severity value becomes Clear.

Following are the out-of-box templates with Wlog suffixed to the file names. They are customized for the Web services with worklog enabled.

On update, the Description (Remedy ticket description) is updated with the latest event information, and the work log is updated with the latest severity and timestamp information.

Reading Ticket Templates

Table 2-2 and Table 2–3 illustrate the creation of a ticket using Remedy_DefaultCategory_HighPriority_AutoClose.xsl. This illustration will help you to read a ticket template. In the tables, * denotes a literal string and ** indicates if the attribute applies.

KeyColumn** (For metrics that monitor a set of objects, KeyColumn indicates the type of object monitored. For example, for the Tablespace Space Used (%) metric that monitors tablespace objects, the KeyColumn is 'Tablespace Name)

KeyValues** (For metrics that monitor a set of objects, the KeyValues indicate the specific object that triggered the severity. For example, for the Tablespace Space Used (%) metric that monitors tablespace objects, the KeyValues is 'USERS' if USERS tablespace triggered at warning or critical severity.)-

Status

Severity

  • If severity is Clear, then set the ticket to the status Closed.

  • If the grace period test has already been done, and the alert is still within the grace period, then reopen the ticket by setting the ticket to the status Assigned; otherwise, leave the status as it is.

Case ID

TicketId (the connector adds this into the alert context before handling the ticketing action. Required by the Remedy Web service to identify the ticket that must be updated)

 

Customizing Ticket Templates

If the out-of-box ticket templates do not satisfy your requirements, you can modify them. To do this, Oracle recommends that you use one of the existing templates as the base template. Copy this ticket template to a new file, modify, and register the new ticket template.

In most cases, when you modify the ticket template, you might only be changing the mappings. The following examples illustrate this point:

Example 2-2 Marking a Category to MyCategory

To create a template to mark the category to MyCategory, modify the following attribute in the template:

<urn:Category>MyCategory</urn:Category>

Example 2-3 Altering the Message Type

If you only want the alert message to appear as ticket summary instead of both message and severity, modify the following attribute:

<urn:Summary><xsl:value-of select="ns0:Message"/></urn:Summary>

The templates are highly customizable. Oracle recommends that only users with advanced knowledge of XSLT make complex changes.

You can use notification rules as a filter to associate proper ticket templates with alerts. You can have as many tickets templates as you want. One notification rule can have only one ticket template.

Defining New Templates

The out-of-box templates are based on the HPD:HelpDesk form. If the new ticket templates you define are based on the HPD:HelpDesk form, Customizing Ticket Templates applies.

However, if you use a custom Remedy Form, such as HPD:CustomHelpDesk, you need to define a new ticket template.

Format for Creating Ticket Templates

To create ticket templates for custom Remedy forms, adhere to the following format:

Example 2-5 Template Format for Custom Remedy Forms

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?> 
<xsl:transform version="1.0" 
xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" 
xmlns:ns0="http://xmlns.oracle.com/sysman/connector/tt" 
targetNamespace="http://xmlns.oracle.com/sysman/connector/tt" 
elementFormDefault="qualified"> 
 
<!-- 
This template creates an incident type ticket with default categorization 
(Category: Default, Type:Default, Item:Default), and low priority. On update, 
the description and message fields are updated, and the ticket is closed if the 
associated alert has cleared. 
--> 
 
<xsl:template match="ns0:EventModel"> 
<xsl:choose> 
<xsl:when test="normalize-space(ns0:TicketId) = ''"> 
 
*[Insert your mappings from EMModel into your custom Create Ticket Webservice SOAP Document] *

* [Insert your mappings from EMModel schema into your Custom Update Ticket Webservice SOAP Document]* 
 
</xsl:otherwise> 
</xsl:choose> 
</xsl:template> 
</xsl:transform> 

Enabling SSL for HTTPS

Follow the instructions provided in this section if you choose HTTPS as the protocol to establish a connection between the Remedy AR server and Enterprise Manager.

Generating a Certificate Request File

Generate a certificate request file for the Remedy AR server and send it to the Certificate authority, such as VeriSign.

Note:

The certificate request file is dependent on the Web server that Remedy uses.

Importing the Certificate from the Certificate Authority

After you get the certificate, import it to the Web server that Remedy uses. The import mechanism varies depending on the Web server that the Remedy Help Desk uses.

Adding Signed Certificates to Wallet Manager

Note:

Oracle Wallet Manager is available at $ORACLE_HOME/bin on OMS. See Oracle Application Server Administrator's Guide for details.

Do the following on Enterprise Manager:

  1. As Super Administrator, create a wallet using the following orapki utility command at the OMS host:

    orapki wallet create -wallet client -auto_login

    Note:

    orapki is available at $ORACLE_HOME/bin on OMS.
  2. Add the trusted certificate to the wallet by entering the following command:

    orapki wallet add -wallet client -trusted_cert -cert verisignCert.cer

  3. To view the content of the wallet, enter the following command:

    orapki wallet display -wallet client

    Ensure that ewallet.p12 is available.

  4. In Oracle Wallet Manager, open the client certificate ewallet.p12.

  5. Go to Select Trusted Certificates and select Operations on the main menu.

  6. Select Export All Trusted Certificates.

  7. Save the file as certdb.txt.

  8. Place the file certdb.txt in the connector home root directory ($OMS_HOME/sysman/connector).

    If the file certdb.txt already exists in the root directory, open the file and add the contents of your certdb.txt to the existing content. If your Remedy installation does not have an operation to query a ticket by case ID, you need to import HelpDesk_Query_Service_By_Case_ID.def into your Remedy instance. You can get this file from $ORACLE_HOME/sysman/connector/Remedy_Connector.

Now Java SSL can use this file for communication between Enterprise Manager and the Remedy AR server in HTTPS mode.

See Also:

For information on creating a wallet, see "Creating and Viewing Oracle Wallets with orapki" in the Oracle Database Advanced Security Administrator's Guide, 10g Release 2 (10.2).

Remedy Connector Tips

This section provides various tips that might help you to use Remedy Connector effectively.

Recommended Protocol

Oracle recommends that you use HTTPS as the protocol for the communication between Enterprise Manager and Remedy AR server.

Use HTTP only if a secure connection is not required and the data can be transferred in clear text between the two systems.

Supported Alerts

This release supports the following types of alerts:

  • Metric alerts

  • Availability alerts

Notification Failure

Notification is blocked for processing if the notification device is down due to any issues. For instance, the Remedy AR server is down, the Remedy configuration on Enterprise Manager is wrong, or the ticket is removed in Remedy.

Notification failure on one target impacts all other targets of the same target type for which the rule applies. That is, subsequent notifications are blocked until the issue is fixed or the maximum retrials fail.

Note:

The maximum retrial period is one day.

Using Worklog

Worklog is a history option in the Remedy ticket that lets you maintain an alert history in the ticket. The Remedy default Web services do not allow modification of this option.

To use worklog, perform the following steps before using the Remedy Connector:

  1. In the Remedy AR server, import the Web service definition HelpDesk_Modify_Service_w_Worklog.def from the Remedy Connector home directory ($OMS_HOME/sysman/connector_Remedy_Connector).

    See Also:

    Section "Importing Object Definitions" in the Remedy Remedy AR System Server product manual Remedy Action Request System 6.3 - Developing AR System Applications: Advanced
  2. Configure the Connector to use the HelpDesk_Modify_Service_w_Worklog Web service by setting the Update Ticket endpoint accordingly.

  3. Import all packaged work log templates (select the files with names ending in Wlog.xsl)using the emctl command provided in "Registering Ticket Templates".

Web Service Details

This section provides information about the Web services that you require depending on the ticket template you choose.

For Default Templates (without Worklog Support)

If you choose default ticket templates, ensure that the following HPD:HelpDesk related Web services are up and running on the Remedy AR server:

  • HelpDesk_Modify_Service

  • HelpDesk_Query_Service

  • HelpDesk_Submit_Service

For Worklog Templates

If you choose Worklog templates (*_Wlog), then you have to import HelpDesk_Modify_Service_w_Worklog.def, which is part of the remedyconnector.jar, to register the HelpDesk_Modify_Service_w_Worklog in Remedy.
