OneFuse Integration Platform
Integrate platforms, endpoints, and DevOps tools with ease.
It’s no secret that integrating tools and infrastructure platforms is creating complexity for modern enterprises. Studies show 69% of large organizations believe that having too many tools hampers infrastructure management productivity. More than half report that team hand-offs are a barrier to resource deployment. OneFuse makes it easy for IT to get tools – and teams – working together.
The Integration Problem
In complex enterprise IT environments, there are hundreds of tools used to automate various tasks. The result is often “islands of automation” that lead to delays in resource delivery, governance challenges, and increased costs over time.
- Architectural Complexity & Lifecycle Management: Integrations are by nature complex, requiring cross-domain knowledge with specialized coding and development skills to support comprehensive provisioning and de-provisioning services.
- Custom Code & Inconsistent Integrations: Traditional infrastructure automation tools rely on integration frameworks, plug-ins, extensions that require highly customized and unsupported integrations.
- Governance, Risk, & Compliance: Customized integration services introduce the risk of human error, misconfigurations, non-compliant deployments, and vulnerabilities.
- Multi-Tool & Platform Support: Organizations are rapidly adopting new deployment tools platforms, requiring I&O teams to integrate and support multiple infrastructure delivery tools.
Reduce Custom Code and Scripts
Integrating endpoints and upstream platforms often requires scripts or hard coded integrations to meet use case requirements. Over time, these customizations lead to unmanageable complexity. OneFuse provides codeless, configuration-based integration services to standardized deployments and day-two operations across infrastructure platforms and tools.
Don’t suffer with expensive integration code re-writes each time a vendor releases an upgrade. OneFuse provides an abstraction layer with built-in business logic that we maintain for you. Reduce your technical debt and focus your IT staff on innovation projects – not maintenance tasks.
Visibility and Governance Across Technologies
While many platforms and tools provide access controls, verification checks, and log capabilities, they are often confined to the actions performed within those technologies. Troubleshooting and governance often suffer due to a lack of visibility across tools. With OneFuse, administrators no longer need to suffer with blindspots and lengthy log reviews. Providing a single UI and policies that unify and enforce governance, with OneFuse you can finally have a single place to view and manage integrations across your automations, tools, and platforms.
Workspaces and RBAC allow Ops, DevOps, NetOps and security to collaborate on automations without the need to provide overprivileged access to systems. Policies create guardrails and validations, replacing the need for lengthy hand-offs with teams and SMEs while still ensuring that teams are deploying compliant, standardized resources. Stay in control with OneFuse centralized visibility and achieve scale for all of your infrastructure automations.
OneFuse offers no-code and low-code integration capabilities providing the flexibility needed to meet any integration challenge. Featuring out-of-the-box integrations for common tools and systems, users can quickly configure and deliver services to their cloud consumers. Of course, we also understand that every business is unique which is why OneFuse offers an API-first framework to address even the most complex integration scenarios.
Unlike custom coding integrations for less common technologies, using the OneFuse platform turns one-off integrations into policy-based services so you can avoid the hassle of snowflake environments. For companies that want to create more sophisticated integration use cases, we offer integration service experts that can bring your systems together faster, and more affordably, than typical professional services engagements.
OneFuse offers near limitless integration scenarios that make endpoint management easier while also extending capabilities that may be missing from your automation tools. At the heart of our platform are two key concepts:
Policy Engine: These reusable policies, or services, allow you to package integration scenarios and reuse them across tools and platforms. However, unlike other services that may be custom developed, or scripts that your teams may keep in a repo, OneFuse policies are fully governed. Each time a policy is used in the machine lifecycle, OneFuse captures the details about who made the request from what tool and what outcomes resulted.
Template Engine: Our platform provides deep templating capabilities for templated fields within policies, allowing for dynamic integrations without code. Using our template engine to design your policies allows you to infuse business logic, build decision trees that are dynamically driven by variable inputs.

OneFuse for IPAM and DNS, and Active Directory
OneFuse provides a way to extend integrations between cloud management platforms, such as vRealize Automation and Infrastructure as Code tools, helping enterprises move beyond what’s available out of the box from single vendor providers. With OneFuse, companies can achieve the most advanced integration scenarios with DDI vendors like Infoblox and BlueCat.
Fully automate your method of obtaining and releasing IP addresses and controlling DNS records at scale, with full visibility of job outcomes. OneFuse policies ensure corporate guardrails are enforced while our robust template engine allows administrators to provide variables to fit nearly any scenario and dynamically drive outcomes. Infuse your organization’s business logic and validate outcomes before servers are built, saving resources and accelerating the time to provision.
Stop requiring your developers to know things like IP subnets, net masks, DNS servers, naming conventions, etc.; instead build that intelligence into OneFuse’s centralized policies, ensuring that infrastructure is placed in the right place, associated with the right records, and fully visible from cradle to grave.
Supported IPAM providers: Infoblox, BlueCat, Men and Mice, and SolarWinds
Upstream providers: vRealize Automation 7.x and 8.x, Terraform, and API accessible
OneFuse Ansible Module
Using the OneFuse Ansible Tower module, it’s easy to create API-based, Ansible-powered services to drive solutions from upstream automation tools or scripts. OneFuse codeless, policy-based integrations can securely power other automation tools and services such as VMware vRealize Automation (vRA), Terraform, ServiceNow, CloudBolt CMP or existing scripts via API, providing control and standardization for resources for both public and private cloud (on-prem) environments.
OneFuse eliminates the security risk of requiring direct access to an Ansible Tower, enabling least-privilege access for specific use cases via policy-based services, versus exposing the full Tower API and otherwise over-allocating permissions. Each policy defines the automation use case, organization, inventory and specific job templates – with the added flexibility of having the requester influence the assignments dynamically via templated fields.
OneFuse Scripting Module
While it’s easy to write a quick script to put out a fire, over time scripts can become a complex mess of custom code that can present risk over time – especially since they often operate in the shadows.
Scripts lack audit trails, are usually written with logic that may not be easily understood when staff changes, and once linked to dependencies, they pose a real threat to operations. The OneFuse Platform provides a single source for your IT staff to create or re-use scripts of any language for Windows, Linux and SSH-enabled devices, deliver them as a service across tools and platforms, while maintaining full visibility into the systems and workflows that rely on these scripts.
Without a way to centralize management and provide security for execution, scripts become a ticking time bomb. Scripts, albeit extremely useful, are not consumable services. With OneFuse any team can bring scripts into the spotlight, creating useful, repeatable API-based services, gaining the same intended usefulness packaged as a safe, trackable service.
