Configure API alerts

You must join the EAP to use this feature.

If you have set up a ConnectWise integration you can create service tickets in ConnectWise for Sophos Central alerts.

You must set up a rule to control which alerts create tickets. You can only create one alert rule and it applies to all customers that you turn on service ticket synchronization for. We recommend that you make the filters for your rule as specific as possible to manage the ticket volume. We create a ticket in ConnectWise for each alert type you've chosen.

You can create filters for your rule based on the severity of the alerts, products and categories. We create tickets based on the combination of filters you choose. For example, you could create a rule that creates a ticket for high and medium alerts for protection issues or you could create a rule that creates tickets for high alerts for all products.

When you turn on service ticket synchronization for a customer we create tickets in your chosen service board in ConnectWise. You can then manage and work on your tickets in ConnectWise as you usually would.

You must configure your rule before you set up and turn on ticket synchronization.
