Community Offerings” are offerings published by third parties or Collibra within the Collibra Marketplace community.  Community Offerings are free and made available “as is” by Collibra.  Your master commercial agreement with Collibra for the Collibra Service DOES NOT apply to your use of the Community Offerings (including any warranties, support services and service levels referenced therein).   Your use of Community Offerings is subject to the Collibra Marketplace License Agreement, as may be modified from time to time by Collibra.  Collibra encourages users to seek assistance for Community Offerings from peers and other Data Citizens via the Collibra Community platform.

For this specific integration (and all other Custom Integrations listed on the Collibra Marketplace), please read the following disclaimer:

  • This integration is a template that has been developed in cooperation with a few select clients based on their custom use cases and business needs.
  • While all effort has been made to encompass a range of typical usage scenarios, specific needs beyond this may require chargeable template customization.
  • With this in mind, we have made sure that the template is available as source code and readily modifiable to suit the client's particular use case.

Zendesk’s ticketing system simplifies tracking, prioritizing, and solving customer support tickets. Zendesk also helps collect all your customer support requests from any source and lets you manage them from one location.

The aim of this integration is to automatically pick up tickets that were created in Collibra and open them in Zendesk. At the same time, any ticket updates should be synchronized between the two systems, such as any added comments, ticket priority, and assignee. The integration can run in the background with a scheduled process that can be altered by the user or triggered via an HTTP endpoint request. A CMA file is included with this integration, which imports the custom attributes and assets required. A set of workflows that can help automate processes in this integration is provided as well.

Use cases

With this integration, Collibra users can create issue assets in Collibra, which are replicated in Zendesk. In this way, a Collibra user can keep track of any updates made to the ticket status, ticket type, ticket assignee, and any comments made to the ticket, while also directly interacting with Zendesk.

The integration also features a configuration asset that allows users to change the ticket status throughout its life cycle. This allows users to connect this integration with an approval process and change the actions of when a ticket is created/modified/synchronized and closed.

Elements in Scope

The integration relies on two custom assets:

  1. Zendesk Ticket, which represents the tickets that are/will be synchronized between Zendesk and Collibra

  2. Zendesk Configuration Asset, which represents the statuses of tickets through their different stages:

  • Collibra Closed Issue Status,
  • Collibra Status for Failed Sync,
  • Collibra Issue Statuses for Ticket Modification,
  • Collibra Issue Statuses for Ticket Closure,
  • Collibra Status for Completed Sync.
