An Escalation is a reminder email sent to the assignee and copying their manager (as defined in the Active Directory). The escalation procedure starts once the defined SLA is breached. Escalations continue up the organizational hierarchy (as defined in the Active Directory) from one manager to the next until the top of the hierarchy is reached or the defined CAP for this escalation is met.t. In the case of a Resource Pool ticket, the CC’ed manager will be the manager of the team instead.

What constitutes an SLA breach?

  • Ticket Response time elapses.
  • Ticket Fix time elapses.
  • Ticket Verification time elapses.
