2535248 - Sub-Ticket Can Be Opened Despite Main Ticket Being Closed


You are able to create a sub-ticket for an already closed ticket although it is not possible to close a ticket if a sub-ticket is still open.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service work center.
  2. Go to the Tickets view.
  3. Open any Ticket with the status Closed.
  4. Go to the Sub-Tickets facet.
  5. Click New to create a new Ticket.

Result: The system allows you to create this ticket.


While you cannot close a ticket which has an open sub-ticket, it is possible to create a new ticket and relate it to a closed ticket. When there are open sub-tickets the system presumes that the main issue has not been solved due to the underlying sub-tickets not being confirmed - the presumption is that the issue is not solved. However, the system allows for you to create sub-tickets after you closed your main ticket and allows for you to carry on working on this issue.


This is expected system behaviour.
