Generate Zendesk Ticket Reports In AssetSonar For Detailed ITSM Insights

IT Admins often need detailed insights into their IT service management activities to ensure seamless and faster issue resolution. AssetSonar’s Zendesk integration enables you to run comprehensive Zendesk ticket reports for IT Assets, IT peripherals, and regular items that you may have linked to your Zendesk tickets.

This helps you gain insights into your ITSM workflows, track ticket progress and mean ticket resolution time, and create customized reports based on your needs.

AssetSonar also gives you the ability to generate customized reports (with a column for Zendesk tickets) based on your unique needs.

In order to create a custom report, go to Reports → Create Custom Report. Here, select Zendesk Tickets and add related module(s) for Step 1. Click on ‘Continue’. Note: This option is available for Items, Assets, and Asset Stock.

After enabling the Zendesk Ticket Reports, AssetSonar will set up the following in your Zendesk account:

  1. Triggers: These are business rules that AssetSonar specifies to run as soon as tickets are created or updated. They lead to actions within your Zendesk account based on the targets mentioned below.
  2. Targets: These act as pointers to cloud-based applications including AssetSonar. They contain information like the URL, HTTP method, and username/password about the request that Zendesk will send to AssetSonar.

In our case, the trigger i.e. enabling Zendesk ticket reports leads to an action i.e. sending a request to AssetSonar using the target information of relevant tickets.
