Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Assign a Service Level Agreement to a department
Applies to User Roles:
Service Level Management assigns an SLA to a new service desk interaction, change, incident, or problem according to a prescribed selection process. As part of this process, Service Level Management uses the SLA specified for the contact's department if there is one available.
To assign a default SLA to a department:
- Click System Administration > Base System Configuration > Departments.
- Add optional search criteria and then click Search.
- Select the department record to update.
- In the SLA field, select the SLA to assign to the department.
- Click Save.
- Click OK.
