Reassigning the problem investigation

If you determine that the problem investigation was not adequate, disagree with the need for Change Management, or if Change Management rejects the known error, you reassign the problem investigation for further analysis.

You begin the reassignment process by explaining, using a work information note on the Work Detail tab, why the investigation is being reassigned. You then decide which specialist can perform a better analysis based on skill level, availability, and access rights. After determining the most appropriate specialist, reassign the problem investigation. You can assign the investigation to either the original specialist or to another specialist.

You can reassign an investigation to either an individual or a support group. Use the quick actions in the Navigation pane to reassign an investigation to yourself (Assign to Me) or to reassign an investigation based on automatic routing (Auto Assign).

To reassign an investigation

  1. Open the relevant problem investigation as described in Viewing problem investigations.
  2. To assign the investigation to yourself, in the Navigation pane, choose one of the following actions:
    • Quick Actions> Assign to Me
    • Quick Actions > Auto Assign
      Auto Assign uses the automatic routing to assign the investigation based on predefined system mapping. Automated assignment can be based on the problem location, operational categorization, or product categorization.
  3. To reassign the investigation to someone else, perform the following actions:
    1. Select a new assignee from the Assignee list.
    2. To change the assigned group, select a new assigned group from the Assigned Group list.
    3. Select a new assignee from the Assignee list.
  4. Click Save.
