In Chapter 7, we created a runbook and did not configure the activities because Service
Manager was not available. At this point, you can start the runbook automation with the
first step in the process. Using System Center Orchestrator allows us to use the Orchestrator
Data Bus. The Data Bus is a mechanism in Orchestrator that passes information from one
activity in a Runbook to another activity.
This first step completes the integration between Service Manager and Orchestrator. To
configure and complete the runbook activities, follow these steps:
1. Log on to the System Center 2012 Orchestrator server and open the Orchestrator
Runbook Designer console. Expand Global Settings, click Variables, and right-click
and create a new folder titled O365Settings. You should add 3 variables: Right-click
the folder, select New Variable and type the name ADFSserver ; right-click the folder a
second time, select New Variable and type the name AdminName ; finally, right-click
the folder a third time and type the name AdminPassword , as shown in Figure 8-17.
(Note the optional setting for the password to encrypt). Enter your information for
Figure 8-17 Orchestrator console to create global variables for runbook utilization.
