Domotz ConnectWise Manage Integration

Domotz network monitoring software includes ConnectWise Manage Integration so MSPs can monitor and manage devices in Domotz, discover issues and immediately send them to ConnectWise Manage PSA so you can track them.

MSPs can monitor and manage network infrastructure, connected devices and IoT systems directly through ConnectWise Manage.

How to set up the Domotz ConnectWise Manage Integration

You can connect your ConnectWise Manage Account into Domotz. ConnectWise Manage will become one of the Contact Channels available when creating a Shared Alert. This means that you can create or update a ConnectWise ticket when a specific event occurs in Domotz.

Note: Before adding the ConnectWise Manage integration in Domotz you need to set up your ConnectWise account properly.

Configuring ConnectWise Manage security roles and API members

Security roles and API members are used for connecting Domotz to your ConnectWise Manage account. This must be performed by a ConnectWise Manage administrator with permissions to manage security roles and members. If you can’t please ask your manager.

Add security roles

Log into the ConnectWise Manage dashboard and from the navigation menu, click System, then Security Roles.

Expand the below roles groups and enable the following roles:

  • company maintenance (Inquire Level = All)
  • close service tickets (Inquire Level = All)
  • service tickets (Add Level = All, Edit Level = All, Inquire Level = All)
  • finance agreements (Inquire Level = All)

Note: In ConnectWise 2020.4 it has been introduced an update that puts information from Setup Tables behind another security role. Users using ConnectWise 2020.4 (or above) are also required to allow the following access:
System > Table Setup (Inquire Level = All)

Then click on “Save“.

The levels needed are shown in the following pictures.

Your ConnectWise Manage account is now connected with Domotz.

Click on Manage Agents and select to which ConnectWise Manage Accounts each Domotz Agent should create a support ticket on.

Note: Please note that the Domotz Agent mapping is mandatory. If no choice is done, events on Agents not mapped to any Company/Site in ConnectWise Manage will not be delivered.

You are now able to use the Contact Channel for ConnectWise Manage, within the Shared Alert profile. Once the Shared Alert profile is created, apply the Shared Alert to the Agents and Device for which you are willing to automatically open tickets in your ConnectWise Manage.
