You can now automatically re-evaluate the impact of an incident or an alert ticket when a new asset is associated with it.
The feature titled “Asset impact” compares the “impact” field from the ticket details page against the impact of the newly associated asset and updates the impact field value to whichever is the highest.
For example, imagine a ticket that has “medium” under the impact field. If a “high” impact asset is associated to the ticket, the value of the impact field will change from “medium” to “high”.
The change in the impact will always be from a lower value to a higher value and not otherwise. It can go from “medium” to “high”, but not otherwise.
If priority matrix is enabled, the newly assigned impact status will also affect the priority of the ticket.
