OpsBridge - Cherwell Integration Overview

Companies benefit from connecting OpsBridge and Cherwell in many ways, like automating crucial repetitive tasks and optimizing workloads. The connection ZigiWave establishes between the two systems happens via a connected server.  

Let’s look at the case when there are two separate teams in the company, and one of them is using Operations Bridge Manager, while the other relies on Cherwell. When an event appears in the OpsBridge system, ZigiOps fetches it and sends it to Cherwell via the connected server as a Cherwell incident.  

Through the listener, ZigiOps scans for new updates on the event’s side. When the platform encounters such, it updates the connected systems with fresh information. This way, ZigiOps keeps them synced. Important information such as state, severity, priority, assigned user, and group attributes are also collected and used to enrich the OpsBridge database.

Through the polling, ZigiOps fetches Cherwell incident updates and sends them to the corresponding OBM events.

With ZigiOps, challenges like data transfer delays and misinformation are eliminated. Also, user-related issues are resolved timely, before escalating.
