Routing order of precedence

The following routing order is used based on your selection.

For Causal incidents:

  • If you select only the Enable Supported By Group check box, the ticket is routed to the Supported By group.
  • If you select only the Enable Managed By Group check box, the ticket is routed to the Managed By group.
  • If you select both Enable Supported By Group and Enable Managed By Group check boxes, by default, the ticket is routed to the Supported By group. However, you can also opt to route it to the Managed by group by selecting Managed By from the Preferred Routing drop-down.

For Impact incidents:

  • If you select only the Enable Supported By Group check box, the ticket is routed to the Supported By group.
  • If you select only the Enable Managed By Group check box, the ticket is routed to the Managed By group.
  • If you select both Enable Supported By Group and Enable Managed By Group check boxes, by default, the ticket is routed to the Supported by group. However, you can also opt to route it to the Managed by group by selecting Managed By from the Preferred Routing drop-down.
