Managing Recurrent Tickets

Introduced in 8.5

The Recurrent Tickets functionality allows automated submission of Service Desk Tickets according to the specified schedule. You can create jobs for running recurrent tickets, set their schedules, and specify Ticket details.

You manage recurrent Tickets jobs using the Recurrent Tickets grid. To open this grid, click Miscellaneous > Recurrent Tickets on the navigation menu.

To create a recurrent Ticket job:

  1. On the Module menu, click New.

  2. Type the job name and optionally the description.

  3. If you have many recurrent Ticket jobs, you may want to categorize them to make them easier to find. Select a category from the Category list or type a new one.

    NOTE: By default, the Category field is not included in the recurrent Tickets grid. To show the Category column you should modify the view configuration and add this field to the view. For details, see Showing and hiding record fields.
