Create or Edit Ticket Status


The Enterprise Service Manatement (ESM) system includes several default ticket statuses; however, App Admins can configure custom ticket status used in tracking ticket progress. A ticketing application can have any number of ticket statuses. Review the Enterprise Service Management Status KB article for additional information related to Status and Status Classes.

Gotchas & Pitfalls

  • The order of statuses in the ticket status dropdown menu can be customized as desired. If no order is specified, or they are all the same value, the statuses will appear in alphabetical order.
  • Statuses classified as On Hold have a Requires Off Hold setting which can be used to ensure that, if desired, all On Hold tickets can be reactivated at some point. If a Goes Off Hold value is supplied it should be noted that the processor which handles bringing tickets off hold runs at 15 minute intervals. This means it is entirely possible for a ticket to drop off hold on the designated date up to ~15 minutes later than the specific configuration time, depending on where that ticket falls within a given processing sweep.
  • Once created, a status cannot be deleted. It can be marked as Inactive.
  • Statuses used as a default status may not be deactivated.
