Service records

Updated in 8.4

The Service component contains the records for every service provided by your Service Desk, or IT department, or external provider of IT services. For each service, you can define a number of Service Levels which contain the data for automatic calculating ticket's Priority, Response and Resolutions Times.

By means of the service, you can control the availability of objects (Knowledge Base Articles, Equipment Lending Library components, and Announcements) to the persons, groups, or organizations.

For each Service you select the class of tickets (that can be either Incidents, or Work Orders, or Problems, or Change Requests) that can be submitted when providing this service. If you leave the field blank, the Service will only be used to control the availability of objects.

To access the Services grid, select either Service Management > Services in the Sidebar, or Go > Services from the main menu.

  • ID - the automatically generated identification number of the Service.

  • Status - the Service's current status. The list of statuses is configured by your Alloy Navigator administrator.

Below the top pane the following tabs are shown:
