Reassign an Incident for Additional Support

Part of Workflow(s):
Applies to User Roles:

After an Incident Manager is notified that an incident is not going to be resolved on time and that the service level agreement (SLA) is breached or in danger of being breached, the Incident Manager reassigns the incident for additional support.

The Incident Manager reviews the SLA target times and determines that the incident requires reassignment to another level of support. The Incident Manager reassigns the incident to another support group.

To reassign an incident for additional supports:

  1. Click Incident Management > Incident Queue or view your To Do list.
  2. Click the open incident.
  3. Clear the assignment group in the Assignment Group field, and then click Fill to select the new assignment group.
  4. Click Save & Exit.

    Note: You can contact the Service Desk to request that the Service Desk send an information bulletin to affected users and stakeholders.
