Connectwise Manage Tickets - API Security Requirements

Note:  Anything shaded in green is required to create and manage tickets in CW Manage from LCI.


The Lifecycle Insights CW Manage integration supports tickets.   The ticket integration supports the following:

1.  We can pull tickets in from CW manage and report on ticket operational metrics in Report Builder

2.  You can create and manage tickets in CW Mange directly from Lifecycle Insights


This document assumes that you have already set up your CW Manage integration and entered API Keys into LCI.   Considering this, the only thing this article covers are the requirements for LCI to access Tickets in CW Manage.  If you want to review the full set up for CW Manage, please click this link.
