ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus Integration

ManageEngine is a help desk and asset management software that provides help desk agents and IT managers an integrated console to monitor and maintain the assets and IT requests generated from the users of the IT resources in an organization.


What does Opsgenie offer ManageEngine users?

Use Opsgenie's ManageEngine Integration to forward ServiceDesk plus requests to Opsgenie. Opsgenie determines the right people to notify based on on-call schedules– notifies via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls, iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed.

Functionality of the integration

When a request captured in ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus, an alert is created in Opsgenie. When a request is edited with a closed status, the same alert is closed on Opsgenie.
