Before we configure your Auvik / Autotask integration for alert notification, let’s ensure that everything is configured as expected in Autotask for tickets.

How do I add sources?

Sources allow you to identify the source of a ticket. Examples: email, phone call, website.

  1. Hover over the Autotask icon in the top-left corner of your Autotask application.
  2. Move your cursor down to Admin and click Features & Settings.

How do I add system note types?

For notes from Auvik to appear on an Autotask ticket, you require a system note type named RMM Note that’s set to publish to all Autotask users. This system note type may already exist in your Autotask configuration, but let’s confirm before we move forward.

  1. Hover over the Autotask icon in the top-left corner of your Autotask application.
  2. Move your cursor down to Admin and click Features & Settings.
  3. Expand Application-Wide (Shared) Features, then click Note Types.
  4. If a system note type named Task Notes with publishing set to All Autotask Users, and the category set to Task, move on to Configure Auvik for alert notifications to Autotask.
  5. If the required system note type exists but the Publish To is set to Internal Users Only, click on the system note name and update the Publish To to be All Autotask Users. Click Save & Close.
  6. If the required system note type doesn’t exist, click New.
  7. Enter the name of Task Notes.
  8. Select the Publish To of All Autotask Users.
  9. Click Save & Close.

How to add new issue and sub-issue types

Autotask tickets can be created with associated issue and sub-issue types. To have Auvik alerts create new Autotask tickets with associated issue and sub-issue types, you first need to ensure the issue and sub-issue types have been created in Autotask.

  1. Hover over the Autotask icon in the top left corner of your Autotask application.
  2. Move your cursor down to Admin and click Features & Settings.
  3. Expand Service Desk (Tickets), then click Issue & Sub-issue types.
