  • You can then edit the integration to make any changes needed.
  • You can also toggle the Integration on/off at any time from here as well. Disabling the integration will stop new data from being sent to the ZenDesk.

Verifying things are working

You can verify the integration is working by waiting for a new IoT in a Box event (or manually triggering on the device or within the dashboard). As soon as a new event occurs, an event ticket will get created within ZenDesk.
