View Requests

In order to open an request, one should click on it in the list.

Viewing request

The window of request viewing can be divided into several parts:

Upper Toolbar

The upper part contains several buttons:

  • To list — return to the viewing of the list of requests.
  • New request — start creating a new incident.
  • Assign — open the list of users/groups to assign the request to.
  • Orgnization — pressing on this button opens the list of organizations added to the corresponding module of the system. Binding of a request enables you to view it on the corresponding tab of the organization. Statistics on organizations that submit their requests are shown in reports.

When the assigned users or binding to organization are changed, the corresponding comment about the changes will be automatically added to the request.

The possibility of assigning request can be disabled by a system administrator.

Request Title

The request title contains its title, group, category and product, to which the request belongs, as well as its current status and the start date. If the title of the request is red colored, it means that it is of higher priority. Below there is information about the user, who has created the request, and the date of its creation/modification.

Requests linked to a project are marked with the icon project_icon and a link to the project. The link text is the same as the project name.

You can copy the link using the corresponding command of the context menu and then insert it to other messages. Also you can search requests by these identifiers. To do it, type the identifier with the "#" symbols before it in the search line. Search by identifiers can be performed only within the "Service Desk" module.

Request Body

Under the request title, you can find the body of the request where its description is given. If you are the author of the request or have permissions for administration and full viewing of the group, you can change its text using the "Edit" button that appears when pointing the mouse cursor over the request body.

The author can modify the text of a request only during the first 15 minutes after creating it.


All operations with requests are performed via comments that can be added in the lower part of the window.

No matter how long the list of comments or the request text is, the page header always contains the following details:

  • The subject of the request. Click on it to move to the top of the page.
  • The color mark of the request.
  • Buttons of available actions. For example: edit_icon Edit, Close Close, New comment New comment, Additional commands and others.
