Conditional ITSM

You can give specific condition(s) based on attribute(s) and group(s) membership to process integration. The ticket(s) will be processed if the user has been added or removed from the specified group(s) or if certain attribute(s) matches the given condition(s).

Select attributes

You can select the attributes of the entity(s) that you want to populate. You can map values from the AD to populate these attributes. You can also use Hire2Retire's powerful data transformation capabilities using Excel Style functions. Apart from the default attributes visible on Hire2Retire, if you add any other custom attribute(s) on the Freshservice portal, it will be visible on the Hire2Retire and you can populate it accordingly.


Given below is an example to create entity(s) on Freshservice using Hire2Retire. In this example, whenever a new employee is onboarded a Request Service is created on Freshservice to provision them with the necessary hardware essential to perform their job, hence the New Hire/Rehire Onboard operation is selected.

You can provide the entity summary and select the available attributes. You can also add custom attribute on Freshservice portal and it will be available on Hire2Retire. Here, a custom dropdown attribute named Priority is added on the Freshservice portal and is populated on Hire2Retire.

The Request for someone else checkbox allows to make this request service for any other existing employee. You can also add any additional attributes apart from the default attributes using '+' sign. Refer to the example workflow images available below.
