AlertMagic

  • Distils multiple alerts into single incidents
  • Reduces the noise in your ticketing system by removing unnecessary tickets and improving those that remain
  • Correctly translates alerts into Incidents, with each new alert being checked against existing Incidents before a new one is created
  • Assigns each Incident to the correct work queue
  • Where multiple Incidents are created within a configurable time period, automatically create Problem tickets and associate all related Incidents
  • As alert updates/clears occur, adds notes to open Incidents
  • Formats all Incident, Problem and Note fields as required
  • Augments and enhances raw alert data, based on configurable business logic
  • Attributes the current customer / CI / incident type / priority etc.
  • Can execute automatic diagnostics during incident creation / update, saving (system-dependent)
  • Can perform other automatic actions where appropriate, including device firmware updates, interface resets, device resets, software updates etc. (system-dependent)

Receiving incoming alerts from your Alert Management System (for example, LogicMonitor), AlertMagic uses configurable business logic to determine how to update your Incident Management System (ServiceNow, AutoTask, Jira or Microsoft Dynamics 365). This can include suppression, incident creation/update, problem creation/update, associating incidents with problems, adding ticket comments and acknowledging alerts in your Alert Management System with the associated ticket number.

AlertMagic supports:

  • All Alert Management Systems which trigger a webhook to send alert details
  • These Issue Management Systems:
    • Autotask
    • Microsoft Dynamics 365
    • Jira
    • ServiceNow
      and coming soon, FreshService

The system can even introduce a short delay (for example, 2 minutes) before checking whether upstream devices (for example, switches) are shown as offline in your Alert Management System. In this way, the number of “false positive” tickets can be greatly reduced.
