Governing incidents by changing the status

With BMC Service Resolution, incidents created from the event-management product can be governed by Incident Management. By setting the incident status to In Progress from the Assigned state in Incident Management, you can ensure that any Status, Urgency, and Impact updates made in the event-management product, do not change the status of the incidents in Incident Management.

Updates triggered by the event-management product are updated in the Work Details tab on the Incident Form, but they don't reflect in the Status, Urgency, and Impact fields on the Incident form.
