Integrate Opsgenie with BMC TrueSight

What does Opsgenie offer BMC TrueSight Pulse users?

BMC TrueSight Pulse sends notifications for alarms. With BMC TrueSight Pulse Integration, Opsgenie acts as a dispatcher for these alarms, determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls and iPhone & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When an alert is created in BMC TrueSight Pulse, an alert is created in Opsgenie automatically through the integration.

Add BMC TrueSight Pulse integration in Opsgenie

  1. Go to Opsgenie BMC TrueSight Pulse Integration page.

Under the Free and Essentials plans, the tabs under the Team dashboard are limited to Main, Integrations, Members, and Activity Stream.

2. Specify who is notified of BMC TrueSight Pulse alerts using the Teams field. Auto-complete suggestions are provided as you type.

An alternative for Step 1) and Step 2) is to add the integration from the Team Dashboard of the team which will own the integration. To add an integration directly to a team, navigate to the Team Dashboard and open Integrations tab. Click Add Integration and select the integration that you would like to add.

3. Copy the API Key.

4. Click Save Integration.
