Analytics on Request transition history

  • Analyze the transition history of a request such as,
    • The number of times each request was re-assigned to a different technician.
    • The amount of time a request was put in an on-hold state.
    • The number of support groups that have worked on each request.

Behaviour Changes :

Case : 1

Bulk association of sites in request will work only under the following cases:

  • * If the requester of a ticket is an actual end user (not technician), then the new site will be associated if that site belongs to the requester’s account.
  • * If the requester of a ticket is a technician, then the new site will be associated if the current technician(Logged-in tech) has permission for that site and also if the site belongs to the technician’s account or if the site is a MSP Organization Site.
  • * When bulk editing the request, the site value will be populated based on the logged-in technician’s site, request account change operation will be carried out only if the selected site is associated to the Work order's requester(Requester/Technician).

Other behaviour changes :

  • Earlier, while creating a request/ticket, the client machine's host name was stored in the request's history. Henceforth, only the client machine's IP address will be stored since the property 'enabledLookups' will be set to 'false' in 'server.xml' file by default. You can revert to the old behaviour by setting the property 'enabledLookups' to 'true' in the 'server.xml' file.

    Note: This requires a restart and might result in performance problems since resolving the client host name depends on a call to the DNS server.

  • Change workflow will be displayed only in Single view and not in Tab view anymore.
  • The application will function on free license after the acquired license expiry.
  • Duplicate additional fields will be automatically removed from the request template forms. To view the changes, go to the System Log Viewer.
