Prerequisites for the BeyondTrust Remote Support Integration with CA Service Desk


You must purchase this integration separately for both your Remote Support software and your CA Service Desk solution. For more information, contact BeyondTrust's Sales team.

To complete this integration, please ensure that you have the necessary software installed and configured as indicated in this guide, accounting for any network considerations.

Applicable Versions

  • BeyondTrust Remote Support: 19.2 and later
  • CA Service Desk: 17.x (plus any associated cumulative patches and test fixes)

Network Considerations

The following network communication channels must be open for the integration to work properly:

Outbound From Inbound To TCP Port # Purpose
BeyondTrust Middleware Engine Server CA Service Desk 443 API calls from the BeyondTrust Middleware Engine server.
BeyondTrust Middleware Engine Server BeyondTrust Appliance B Series 443 API calls from the BeyondTrust Middleware Engine server.
BeyondTrust Appliance B Series BeyondTrust Middleware Engine Server

8180 (default)

443 (optional)

The BeyondTrust Middleware Engine server receives outbound events from the appliance. However, if polling is used instead of outbound events, then this port does not have to be open.

Prerequisite Installation and Configuration

The CA Service Desk integration is a BeyondTrust Middleware Engine plugin.
