Problem Environment:
CA Service Desk r11

Causes of this problem:
You must create a Service Desk ticket template for new Service Desk tickets created from SPECTRUM alarms. This ticket template specifies the format of Service Desk tickets created from OneClick alarms.

Additional Information:
You can configure Service Desk to use Issues, Requests, or Incidents (when ITIL methodology is used on the Service Desk server) as the default ticket type created by OneClick. The procedures in this section refer to "Issues." If you want to use Requests or Incidents instead (which allow you to support Incident and Problem type requests), you must replace all references to "Issues" with "Requests" or "Incidents," respectively. For example, in this step, replace File -> New Issue with File -> New Request or File -> New Incident. For an example using Requests, see the example of creating Service Desk tickets automatically for a single alarm type (see page 29 of the SPECTRUM and CA Service Desk Integration Guide).
You can customize your Service Desk and SPECTRUM integration to use more than the default template. By editing the SPECTRUM_POLICY Web Services Policy, you can add different problem types that refer to different ticket templates. For more information about how to add problem types to the Web Services Policy in Service Desk, see the Unicenter Service Desk Web Services User Guide.
