2. The event should have, object type re/in/pr
3. The condition should be "site defined condition" and set for the category that is required with the status of the ticket set to "open" so it is executed when the ticket is created.
4. The actions when the event conditions are fullfiled, set the impact to none, priority not assigned and urgency low.
5. Add the created event to the "Initial" activity notification (Admininistration tab->Notifications->Activity notifications-> initial, event tab) so once the ticket is created when the ticket is saved the event will be triggered and the conditon analized so the ticket is set with the correct priority.
