Remedyforce Integration Guide

Remedyforce, built on Salesforce App Cloud, enables you to deliver high-speed service management that empowers users and accelerates the business, with minimal capital investment. Integrate AlertOps’ alert management platform with Remedyforce to receive and respond to critical email alerts. AlertOps ensures that alerts received from Remedyforce always reach the correct, available team member by utilizing escalation policies and on-call schedules.

Step 5: Add a workflow rule to notify AlertOps when an incident is closed in Remedy:

Alert Triggering Information

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

If an alert with status “OPENED” 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 “CLOSED” is received.
