  3. To enable the capability to define unique prefixes for records, select Enable User Defined Prefix.
    This option is used in a distributed environment in which records are generated by two or more servers and duplicate records might be generated. When you select this option, you also have to define the unique prefix as described in Configuring forms to use DSO unique prefixes. For example, by default incident records are prefixed with INC (INC000000314355). You might want to configure another server to create incident records with a prefix of IMT (IMT000000314355) to avoid duplicate records.
  4. To restrict a user's access to only one company's information, select Single-Tenancy in the Tenancy Mode field, and then select the company to which the user should have access. This restriction is useful, for example, if you have outsourced some IT functions in your organization and want to restrict a third-party vendor to information that belongs to them.
  5. To see the attachment icon on the ticket form, select the Enable Attachment option.
