Product defect, there are two logic flaws around this functionality.


This has been reported to Symantec Engineering and will be fixed in a future version of ServiceDesk.


These problems are in the open Problem Feeder project and can be fixed by making a couple modifications:

  1. Open the SD.Feeder.ProblemCreation project.
  2. Go to: 'Set New Problem Data [4.82]' Embedded Decision Model component > 'Set Priority According to Impact/Urgency Matrix [32]' Embedded Model component
  3. Edit the 'Set Ticket Priority to Matrix Value [5]' Single Value Mapping component > Mapping Definition '...' and change the ProblemTicket.ProblemPriority (right side) mapping to VarFoundMapping[First].Value (from current VarImpactUrgencyMatrix[First].Value).
  4. Edit 'Find Matching Impact/Urgency Mapping [10]' Configurable Collection Filter component > 'Configuration' tab > Filter Model '...'
  5. Edit the 'Compare Impact [4]' text Equals Rule component > 'Compare Variable' needs to be 'Problem.BusinessImpactLevel' (not 'Problem.Impact').
  6. Save and Publish the amended project.
