One of the reasons engineers tend to prefer automation over clicks is efficiency, especially if there are many days 2 operations and tasks that can be automated.
Through Prism Pro (PC pro), you can use the X-play feature to automate many routine tasks which can be achieved by creating Playbooks.
You can create playbooks based on the following triggers:
- Alert Trigger: Automatic playbook trigger when an alert is generated
- Manual Trigger: Manual trigger playbook with select an entity type (VM, cluster, or host)
At this moment there are no options to trigger another playbook.. that would be nice to have!
When you create a playbook, you can do many sequential actions and initially, there are 21 actions available on the action gallery that can be either cloned or edited.
The first playbook we think that should be implemented on your PC is RUN NCC on Prism element (PE)
Here is a quick video to show you how you can create the playbook and use it.
Hope you find the content useful.
