Incident Management: Incident

This topic applies to systems using a Service Desk or Universal license only.

The Incident process is a simple process for handling support issues. You can either close Incidents directly, or resolve and then close them separately as a two-step procedure. If needed, you can return resolved or closed Incidents to the Open status.

The Assign To Me action enables an analyst to assign the Incident to themselves and their current group with a single mouse-click.

You cannot resolve or close an Incident if there are any Tasks that have not been completed.

Optional actions for each status:
