New Generic interface Operations for CMDB

With the upcoming OTRS4 the CMDB will get an own Generic Interface connector to create, read, search and update CIs via SOAP or REST.

So first you have to create a new webservice within OTRS for the needed provider operations:

GenericInterface_Web_Service_GUI_-_Admin_-_OTRS__ITSM_4_Beta_5Then you have to create a script which uses the SOAP method to create a new CI:  otrs.SOAPCreateCI.pl

Running it, it will create a new CI:

DefaultIn the interface there is no difference between a manually created CI and the one created by the webservice

  1. Hi Jens, nice post. Could you please upload smaller images as the current ones are very large and possibly unable to display okay on smaller screens?

  2. Was this merged to ‘master’ yet? I can’t find any references there and would love to give it a try.

  3. Ah, sorry… my fault. I searched for it in OTRS 4 itself, not OTRS::ITSM :)
    Thanks a lot for finishing these efforts to bring CMDB support to the GenericInterface!
