Send Tickets to ConnectWise

Learn how to send Roar Actionable Alerts as tickets into your ConnectWise Manage PSA

Once you've set up Roar's ConnectWise integration and imported and mapped your ConnectWise companies, you're ready to enable ConnectWise ticket creation.

Step 1: Enable ConnectWise Service Ticket Generation

Go to Admin > Integrations > ConnectWise > Service Tickets and select the checkbox next to Enable ConnectWise Service Ticket Creation in order to allow for Roar's ticketing integration.

Step 2: Map Roar to a ConnectWise Service Board

You may send tickets to multiple existing ConnectWise Service Boards, or you may choose to create a Roar-specific Service Board to be the catch-all for tickets coming from Roar (steps below).

Roar API Member

You must ensure that the Roar API Member is able to read and create tickets to the Service Boards that you have mapped.

  • In Roar, select a Service Board, API Member, and optionally, a Ticket Source for Roar
  • In step 4, you will map the appropriate Roar status to the ConnectWise status for that board. You will have to do this for all Service Boards you would like to send tickets to.

If you would like to create a Roar-specific Service Board, please follow the steps below:

  • Create your Roar-specific Service Board in ConnectWise
    • There must be a default Status, Team Member and Default Team assigned to the Board.
    • Confirm that the Roar User has access: The Roar user must have rights to access and create tickets within which ever Service Board was selected.
  • In Roar, select a Service Board, API Member, and optionally, a Ticket Source for Roar

Step 3: Generate a Test Ticket: Update Screenshots with new UI

Login to your ConnectWise dashboard and under the RoarBoard you should see a Roar test ticket.

Step 4: Map Ticket Statuses between Roar and ConnectWise

You can map ConnectWise Manage Statuses and Priorities associated with the Board to the matching Statuses and Priorities in Roar.

Statuses for Different Service Board

For every board that you want to have Roar send tickets, ensure that you have mapped statuses for that board.

Once statuses have been set, Service Board statuses will auto-save.

You should have ConnectWise statuses for the following Roar Task statuses:

  • New
  • Re-Opened
  • Closed - Complete
    • Tickets set to this status will trigger a validation.

*Note: Roar's Closed-Complete will trigger a revalidation and possible reopening of the ticket, or if another Status is mapped to Closed within ConnectWise Manage, it will also trigger a self-heal attempt (revalidation) and possible reopening.

You should also see ConnectWise Priorities for the following Roar Task priorities:

  • Critical
  • High
  • Medium
  • Low

ConnectWise Callbacks

Callbacks are the notification back to Roar from ConnectWise that a ticket that Roar created has been updated.

Roar gets callbacks from all Service Boards that are set up in Roar. This ensures that tickets stay linked to Roar no matter where they get sent or moved.
