    Change Status of Old Incidents to "Closed"

      Share This:

      We have several old Incidents(7K) which are just lying there and not being worked and not resolved.

      If we write an escalation to chnage status to close them (before a certain date) what could be the risks?

      I undertsand some of them might have relationships with Knowledge etc.



      Thanks in advance!

          One issue off the top of my head would be the Tasks.


          If you have ITSM configured to not allow an Incident to be Resolved with open tasks then that will be a problem.

          If you do not have this option configured and you close all your incidents you will have open tasks.


          Check your configuration and I would setup an escalation to take care of any tasks before I created an escalation for the incidents.


          The other possible option is if you changed any groups / assignees, i.e. disabled them or deleted them the system will give an error if you try and resolve or close an incident as it 'checks' these items when the incident is being updated.


          Hope this helps.
