Troubleshooting service requests with errors

If the service request cannot be completed because of an error from Change Management or Incident Management, you can view which service requests contain errors and review the event log to troubleshoot the service request. If the error is the result of integration or other configuration issues, you can also see the Remedy IT Service Management online documentation for information to help you troubleshoot the problem.


To see service requests with errors, you need Command Event Master permissions in addition to Requester console Master permissions.

  6. Take any of the following actions for events that are in error:

    • Ignore

      Best practices

      We recommend that you retry each event in the order in which the events are generated. By default, the event table is sorted with the recent event on top, in reverse chronological order. Typically, events should be retried when the problem indicated by the error message has been fixed. 


      Delete service requests with caution. They cannot be recovered. You must have AR System Administrator permissions to delete service request records.
