Issue/Introduction

After creating several new ticket statuses, they are not appearing in the dropdown to choose from when updating the status on a ticket.

Cause

This is due to status transitions not being created for the new statuses that were added to the system.

Environment

Service Desk Manager (All Versions)

Resolution

To resolve this, simply add status transitions for each of the existing statuses that you want to be able update to one of the new statuses.  You must create a status transition for every status that you want to be able to go FROM and TO, in order the new status to be visible and usable.

Additional Information
