Configure Automation integration

Automation Integration allows you to configure services that can invoke Run Books in an Ivanti Automation environment, for example to create user accounts, e-mail accounts, or to install software. The settings that you specify are used by the Transaction Engine to connect to Automation Dispatchers and invoke Run Books when necessary.

Additionally, you can specify the URL of the Automation Management Portal. This allows you to redirect administrators to specific areas of the Automation Management Portal when they are working in Identity Director.

Automation Integration also allows service templates to be referenced from Automation. You can use these templates in Automation to create new services, based on Run Books.
