Integrated Runbook Automation
Make your job easier with runbook automation that’s built into the ScienceLogic platform.
- Automate routine tasks and processes
- Initiate one or more actions immediately on certain risk, performance or failure conditions, like kicking off scripts to restart a process, spin VMs up or down, or automate configuration changes to resolve an issue
- Assemble and inject supplementary data into tickets to expedite issue resolution. For example, append traceroute, serial number, and CLI outputs into a trouble ticket.
- Notify key customers or operations teams via email, text, pager and (other)
- Chain tools together to automate operational workflows and remediation actions across the tools and domains
- Open, update, and close tickets automatically in your service desk solution—whether you use ScienceLogic’s integrated ticketing or a third party solution like ServiceNow
- Automatically extract or populate and synchronize information with your asset management or CMDB solution—whether you use ScienceLogic’s integrated asset management or a third party solution like ServiceNow
- Collect data and events from your application or network performance management (APM, NPM) and ERP solution like New Relic to get a complete picture of service delivery, and enable launching in-context to these tools for deeper problem diagnosis when issues arise
- Initiate alerts via third party alerting platforms like PagerDuty and xMatters
- Initiate a series of actions when a VM or server becomes unavailable, such as kick off a traceroute, capture the traceroute path, then create a ticket and insert the traceroute into the ticket to enable faster problem diagnosis
- Identify a noisy neighbor of an AWS instance, terminate the instance and spin up a new one, rediscover the new one, and reapply the terminated instance’s monitoring policies and settings
