An AutoSys job parameter must be set in order to change the Service Desk Request to an Incident.


In order to have AutoSys send Service Desk an Incident instead of a Request you need to pass an attribute to set the Type as "I" for Incident by adding the parameter "svcdesk_attr: type/I" to the job definition, as shown below:

svcdesk_attr: type/I

The syntax for this parameter is:

svcdesk_attr: attribute/value[,attribute/value,attribute/value...]

An example with multiple attributes:

svcdesk_attr: priority/4,severity/1,impact/2,type/I
