Introduction

Automation integration is an example of one of the custom integrations.

This integration enables outboard REST API external calls to create process definition workflows. Multiple integration events can be configured as a single installed automation integration.

Automation integration is created based on one of the following types of events:

  • Alerts
  • Resource

After a successful integration, the name of the integration and its event details are visible for creating workflows in process definition workflows.
