Validate a ticket

I have got a validation ticket in my mailbox. What is is?

A ‘validation support ticket’ is a part of Basis Consulting Service Desk and it’s a way for quick communication between the parties on issues/matters/tasks were we need an approval (Accept or Reject) from the customer without major delay. Them most commonly example would be to ask for approval for downtime. A ‘validation required’ ticket will only be sent to a ‘Customer Approver’ as email and the respond is either ‘Accept’ or ‘reject’.

To get more detail about the content of a ‘validation support ticket’, you have to to into the customer portal.

For users with access to more than one organisation:

  1. To switch between organisations, choose arrow next to login name.

2. The content displayed for each organisation is based on the role and profile you have for the individual organisation. If you are missing content, ask for extended roles from a ‘Customer Approver’ in the named organisation.
