Integrate problem notifications with ServiceNow

ServiceNow is one of the most extensive enterprise service management platforms available at the moment. The new Dynatrace-to-ServiceNow integration is the perfect way to seamlessly report IT-service related problems into your organization’s ITIL process.

ServiceNow provides enterprise service management software for efficiently managing the full spectrum of enterprise-related affairs, including legal, HR, finance, facilities management, marketing, and field operations.

ServiceNow supports the IT Infrastructure Library (ITIL), an integrated, process-based, best practice framework for managing IT services businesses.

Dynatrace intelligently detects problems, along with their root causes, in complex IT service landscapes. The new Dynatrace-to-ServiceNow integration enables Dynatrace monitored environments to push problem notifications directly into a ServiceNow incident table.

To set up a Dynatrace-to-ServiceNow problem-notification integration:

  1. Go to Settings > Integration > Problem notifications.
  2. Select ServiceNow.

  7. Click Send test notification.
  8. Following receipt of the test message, click Save.
    You’ll now find all Dynatrace-detected problems included in your ServiceNow incident table.
