3 On-call Rotation FAQ: Remedy will be made “Read-Only” ~ 5 pm on 10/18. There will be an outage from ~ 5 pm to 11 pm to stop tickets from being created. All “in-flight” tickets (open, pending, etc,) will be migrated to SNOW during this outage window with the same ticket numbers. ServiceDesk.FNAL.gov will have a landing page to direct users to SNOW once we’re live (~ midnight on10/18). Q: Will the old Remedy/Telalert paging still work? A: Remedy will be made “Read-Only” EXCEPT for event ticket generation, so paging will still work. Q: What if I need to acknowledge a page during the outage? A: You should acknowledge the page via your pager, or ask specifically for your ID remain active in Remedy during the outage window. Q: How long will the old Remedy/Telalert paging be operational? A: We want to get people transitioned no later than 2-3 weeks from go-live, but we encourage service providers to migrate off the pagers and the old system as soon as possible. Q: How do I get a lab phone to replace my pager? A: Tim/Jack have all the phones and forms you need to sign – see one of us. Q: Do I need to turn in my pager when I get a new phone? A: You an, or you can turn it in once you’ve established the new system works for you. Q: Does this mean I will get duplicate pages? A: Yes – until you’ve established the new system works for you and we turn off the alerts/paging. Q: Can I user my personal phone? A: Yes – and you can expense transactions (such as SMS or phone calls) if they are outside of your plan. You will not be able to expense entire plans. Documentation on this will be provided by COB on Monday 10/16 (the wheels turn slowly).

4 The On call rotation feature (or “Rota’s” as they are referred to in Service-Now) serves several purposes within Service-Now. 1.) It is used as an automated method to rotate members of a support group through primary/secondary on-call coverage responsibilities, as part of an automated pre- determined rotation. Primary On-call Rotate every 24 hours * Note: To my knowledge – no service providers use this type of function in CD.

5 The On call rotation feature (or “Rota’s” as they are referred to in Service-Now) serves several purposes within Service-Now. 2.) It provides a method for support groups to establish a CI as “pagable” and enable support groups to “subscribe” to that CI for event notifications and escalations. An event has been generated against a CI and needs attention! Off Hours? Escalate to “Secondary” Notification to Group Escalate to “Primary” No Yes Ack? No Yes END

6 The On call rotation feature (or “Rota’s” as they are referred to in Service-Now) serves several purposes within Service-Now. 3.) It provides a method to establish rules for escalation notifications to Rota members via mobile devices based upon notification preferences.

7 The Components of the On-Call Rota An On-call Rota is made up of a subset of the members of a given support group. The selected members make up the Rota “Roster”. An individual may be more than one On-call Rota. Every On-call Rota has a “Schedule”. Every Rota can have only ONE schedule. The schedule is established at creation time by selecting the “Schedule Type” from the available drop-down – the default schedule is 24X7. To create a “Pagable CI”, the CI must be assigned a support group (which must in turn have a defined Rota) AND an attached critical support schedule. An On-call Rota can support multiple CIs with different critical support schedules, as long as they fall within the Schedule of the On-call Rota (e.g. a CI with an 8X5 critical support schedule may be supported within a Rota with a 24X7 schedule). Every On-call Rota has an option to either rotate through the on-call roster members -or- send notifications to a group device. Every On-call Rota has “Notification Rule(s)” which establishes the sequence and timing of the escalation notifications, and how it rotates through the roster members. The default communication mode is . To receive notifications on your phone - every member of a roster MUST have their mobile device and contact information created in the Notification Preferences, which are created in their individual User Profile.

Step 5: Submit * Note: Do NOT choose “Manual Schedule” – this ends up being allot of work. ** Note: When testing, you may want to set the ‘Rotation start date” for one day previous to insure escalation/notification during test cases. Creating an On-Call Rota

11 After clicking SUBMIT, you will be presented with a graphical calendar with the on-call coverage displayed. Step 6: Select “My Groups Rota” from the selection menu on the left. Creating an On-Call Rota * Note: This calendar is active, and adjustments to on-call personnel can be made by clicking on the time periods displayed on the calendar, but this approach is NOT recommended, as it has resulted in unpredictable results during testing.
