To link an Incident ticket to a Problem ticket:

  1. In the Tickets screen, click the desired ticket.
  2. In the Ticket Details tab, ensure that Incident is the active Ticket Type.
  3. Click the Problems tab.
  4. Enter or select a ticket number, request type, status, or search term in any existing Problem tickets that you can transform into a Parent ticket.
  5. Click Search to find Problem tickets relating to your Incident ticket.
  6. In the search results, click View to preview possible Parent tickets.
  7. Click Link to assign the Problem ticket as a Child ticket.

To unlink a Problem ticket from an Incident ticket:

  1. In the Tickets screen, click a Problem ticket.
  2. In the Ticket Details tab, ensure that Problem is the active Ticket Type.
  3. Scroll down to the Linked Incidents tab.
  4. Click the Unlink Problem button.

    The Parent Problem ticket is no longer linked to the Incident ticket.
