BMC Helix Business Workflows Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony BMC Helix Business Workflows Connector establishes access to BMC Helix Business Workflows.

The BMC Helix Business Workflows connector provides an interface for creating a BMC Helix Business Workflows connection, the foundation used for generating instances of BMC Helix Business Workflows activities. These activities, once configured, interact with BMC Helix Business Workflows through the connection.

The BMC Helix Business Workflows connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a BMC Helix Business Workflows connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific BMC Helix Business Workflows connection and its activities are referred to as a BMC Helix Business Workflows endpoint:

BMC Helix Business Workflows activity types

  • Search Cases: Searches for and retrieves cases at BMC Helix Business Workflows and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Create Case: Creates a case at BMC Helix Business Workflows and is intended to be used as a target in an operation. You can automatically create a BMC Helix Digital Workplace Service Request for the created case by enabling the createServiceRequest (string) field value in the request transformation.

  • Get Case: Retrieves a case from BMC Helix Business Workflows and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

  • Update Case: Updates a case at BMC Helix Business Workflows and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The BMC Helix Business Workflows connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

Refer to the BMC documentation for information on the schema nodes and fields.
