An IT workspace is a workspace that is created primarily to manage IT service management operations. 

Creation of an IT workspace

  • A workspace created using the IT workspace template would be an IT workspace. 

  • If you use the blank template and choose IT as the primary business function, then the workspace created would be an IT workspace. 

  • The primary workspace, which is created as the default workspace in your account, is always an IT workspace. 

Ticket types supported in an IT workspace 

IT workspaces support Incidents, Service Requests, and Major Incidents. Case/Query/Issue/Request ticket types are not available in IT workspaces and are only available in Business workspaces.
