Archive for Orchestrator

I few days ago a friend (Anders Bengtsson over at asked if I could help out with creating an Orchestrator Activity that would convert rich text to plain text. So, today we’re announcing another community contribution from Gridpro, the “Gridpro Orchestrator Text Manipulation Integration Pack”. At this point it only contains the one activity – “RTF to Plain Text”.

Download the integration pack from here: Gridpro Orchestrator Text Manipulation IP

Note: The activity needs the complete RTF content to be able to convert it correctly, line by line coversion is not supported.

Update: See how Anders uses the IP when working with announcements in Service Manager. Integrate Service Manager and SharePoint annoncements with a bit of Orchestrator magic

It’s here(!), now everyone can start providing their users with fully automated self-service based on pure System Center technology. Since yesterday you’re all able to download the beta version of System Center Service Manager 2012 and the RC version of System Center Orchestrator 2012. These two products are the core components in the new rich self-service portal experience provided by System Center 2012. Where Service Manager is the product that defines tracks and exposes your IT services, Orchestrator is in charge of the automated request fulfillment (delivering the service…). By having Orchestrator utilizing the other SC family members you can easily provide rich service to your users.
