Monitoring system ticket workflow

I am looking to setup out monitoring system (PRTG) to send emails into JSM when it detects issues. As configured, the system also send an email automatically when the issue is resolved. Ideally the 'resolved' email will trigger the initial request to close out.


So I have a few questions:

Is anyone here using JSM with a monitoring system in this way?

Assuming the initial issue ticket and the resolved ticket will send separately, how can this be reconciled in JSM to prevent multiple tickets opening? 

My goal as stated is so that any alert will open a ticket to be investigated, and also any issues that is resolved (or goes away on its own) will trigger the automatic closure of the ticket,

Yes, I've been doing that sort of thing with Jira for years, by

  • using apps that enable monitoring systems to easily talk to Jira, either apps for Jira or for the monitoring system
  • with direct interfaces (the monitoring system uses SOAP or REST to push data into Jira)
  • with pull scripts (things run in Jira and ask the monitoring system questions - not the best way to do this sort of thing)
  • more recently, with Opsgenie

Hi @Steven Miller,

I belive the easiest way to achieve this is via REST API and not Email. Example:

  • Create a ticket via REST API ( link to api )
  • To remember the reference to that ticket you can
    • (a) Remember in JIRA: Include a reference known to your monitoring sytem in the ticket summary or custom field (e.g. PRTG-ID-1234)
    • (b) Remember in PRTG: Remember the key of the created issue
  • Once the issue is resolved, update that ticket

If you want to do that via email, my thoguhts are:
