Description:

When integrating CA SDM and SOI via Catalyst, you may run into a situation when trying to import CA SDM services into SOI, within SOI itself when you select the "Import" option the service will display correctly, but when you try to import the service, it will appear as nothing happens.

If you check the following log on the Service Desk Connector server:

%Install Location%\Catalyst\CatalystConnector\container\data\log\ServiceDeskManagerConnector.log

An error similar to the following will appear:

FATAL [com.ca.sdm.connector.ServiceDeskManagerConnector] - Exception in the get() method: null

Solution:

On the Service Desk Connector server locate the following file:

%Install Location%\CatalystConnector\container\resources\ServiceDeskObject.xml

Edit the file with a text editor and look for the section:

<attribute type="String" name="resolution_code" />

This item needs to be modified to be:

<attribute type="Integer" name="resolution_code" />

Once this change is completed, restart the Service Desk Manager Connector for the change to take effect and import the CA SDM services into SOI.
