WiscIT - Closing Duplicate Incidents / Reassigning Journals

This document describes how to close a duplicate incident and/or move the journals to the original incident.

On occassion, duplicate incidents will be created. Depending on the situation, duplicate tickets can be reassigned to an existing incident so that information appears in the same spot, or closed entirely without reassignment. Specific journal notes can also be reassigned to a different incident if needed.

All of these methods are one-steps which can be accessed and run as described below.
