Zammad Outbound Integration

With the Zammad Outbound Integration you can create Zammad Tickets right from iLert incidents.

To set up this integration, you must have admin rights in iLert.

In Zammad

Create an API key

1. Optional: create a dedicated iLert user in Zammad. This has the advantage that you can distinguish the Zammad tickets created by iLert.

2. Go to Profile, then to Token Access and click on Create

3. In the Name section, enter a name eg. iLert

4. In the Ticket section, choose Agent

5. Click on Create

An agent token has a group scope

An agent token has a group scope so if you want to use a group that the current user is not a member of, you need to create a token with the admin scope for all groups.

6. The modal window will open, copy the generated access token

In iLert

Create a Zammad Connector and Link to the alert source

1. Click on the gear icon and then on the Connectors button

2. Click on Add Connector

3. Select Zammad as type and fill in all fields. Enter a name, the URL of your Zammad server and the access token that you have created in the previous step.

4. Go to the alert sources tab and open the alert source whose incidents you want to publish in Zammad. Click on Incident actions and then on Create incident action.

5. Select Zammad as the type; futhermore select the connector created in step 3, fill in all fields. In the Email field enter the existing customer email of Zammad.

6. Finished! You can now test the connection by clicking on the button Test this connection. A test ticket will be created in Zammad.
