  3. Safeguard for Privileged Passwords queries all configured ticket systems to see if that ticket number represents a ticket that exists and is in an open state. For ServiceNow, Safeguard checks the Active property of the identified ticket returned from the ServiceNow API and considers the ticket number valid if the Active property is not false for that incident.
    1. If the ticket is not active, the request is denied.
    2. If the ticket is active, the access workflow continues.

Remedy ticketing system integration

You can use ticketing that is configured to work with Remedy.

Tickets can be viewed in the Activity Center, Ticket # column.
