BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management (BPPM) Integration Guide

BMC ProactiveNet Performance Management (BPPM) proactively detects and automatically resolves IT performance issues and sub-optimal configurations before users and services are negatively impacted. Integrate AlertOps’ alert management platform with BPPM to receive and respond to critical alerts through email, SMS, push notification, and phone alerts. AlertOps ensures that alerts received from BPPM always reach the correct, available team member by utilizing escalation policies and on-call schedules.

Mapped fields:

{

"itsm_incident_id": "{itsm_incident_id}",

"itsm_incident_status": "{itsm_incident_status}",

"itsm_item": "{itsm_item}",

"msg": "{msg}",

"status": "{status}",

"severity": "{severity}",

}

Status Values: 

  • OPEN
  • ACK
  • ASSIGNED
  • CLOSED
  • BLACKOUT

Alert Triggering Information

AlertOps will automatically create an incident when a new alert is received from BPPM with an IncidentStatus status of “MAJOR.”

If an alert with status “MAJOR” matches an existing Open Alert, AlertOps will recognize the new alert as a duplicate and ignore the alert. The alert will be recorded in the Inbound Messages table as “Mapped Appended.”

AlertOps will automatically close the same incident when an alert with an IncidentStatus status “OK” is received.
