Configuring fields to search for matching incidents

You can configure fields more fields in the Incident Matching field set to enable staff members to select search for matching incidents based on those fields. The first 15 fields (excluding the fields of data type Text Area (Long)) that you configure are displayed to the staff members in the Incident Matching window. Staff members can select any of the configured fields to search for matching incidents.
