Configuring access to the vendor company
So that support staff in the vendor company can access the vendor company's records, including tickets that are assigned to them, you must grant them access to the vendor company.
In addition, this access gives the support staff access to CIs that are supported by the vendor company, and also gives support staff access to processes that are set up for the vendor company, such as templates and scripts.
Support staff in the vendor company can create tickets only for the vendor company, unless you also grant them access to create tickets.
