Assigning or reassigning an incident request to a vendor
If you need third-party vendor support to resolve an incident, use the vendor-related fields on the Incident form to track the assignment.
This topic contains information about the following types of assignment or reassignment:
To assign or reassign an incident to an internal vendor
- Open the incident request record.
- From the Vendor Group menu, select the vendor.
If the vendor's ticket number is available, type it in the Vendor Ticket Number field.
If the Vendor Group has a group email address assigned to it, the notification goes to the group email address. If no group email address is configured for the Vendor Group, then notifications are sent to the individual email addresses of the Vendor Group members.
