Integrating ServiceNow with Operata, to create a ServiceNow issue whenever an Agent uses Operata to report an issue is simple:

  • Operata can be configured to generate an email, whenever an agent reports an issue.

  • ServiceNow can be configured to create an Incident whenever it receives an email from a specified email address..

Operata - sending an Email when Agents report issues

Navigate to Operata Workflow section and select +CREATE WORKFLOW.

Choose the CCaaS Platform option, then NEXT.

At the next page choose Agent Reported Issue.

Then choose the Send Email option.

Now enter the conditions where emails are to be sent and the email address to send to your ServiceNow environment.

Email format and content

The CallID can be used in Operata and AWS console as the reference to get to the details that may be more sensitive (IP address etc)
