Notify the old owner of an incident on incident re-assignment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    is it possible to notify the previous incident owner after the incident has been re-assigned? If for example I have an incident assigned to me and somebody takes its ownership I would like to be notified that I am no longer the owner of it. Is this possible with SCSM?

    Thanks in advance!

  • It's possible, yes, but not from the console.

  • Hi Aaron,

    thanks for the link. I have already imported the MP and I am notifying both affected user and the assigned to user, but I still don't understand how to notify the previous owner of the work item and this was the major requirement :(

    Currently I have included two notifications within the same workflow:

                     <WorkflowArrayParameter Name="InstanceIds" Type="guid">
                     <WorkflowParameter Name="NotificationRulesEnabled" Type="boolean">True</WorkflowParameter>
                     <WorkflowArrayParameter Name="NotificationTemplates" Type="guid">
                     <WorkflowArrayParameter Name="UserAliasOrRelationships" Type="string">

    How can I modify it to be able to notify also the Previous Owner of the WI? I suppose I have to include the GUID of the previous owner under the "UserAliasOrRelationships" section, but how can I find it? Should I paste the GUID of the respective template under the existing two GUIDS as well?

    Thanks, Tony

  • Hi Marat,

    you guys are great, this is exactly what I'm looking for. I have a simpple additional question:

    Where is the difference between the post you recommended and this one:

    How to inform ex-AssignedTo analyst about the withdrawal

    Is only the approach different (related item from the deleted relationship in the first case and Powershell in the other)?

    Many thanks again in advance!

  • Hi Tony,

    Yes, indeed, the result is the same but the approach is a bit different.
