This is the expected behavior, since you have created a Service Level with the "Due Date for Response". When the "Due Date for Response" is assigned to a Service Level and this Service Level is assigned to a Ticket the Response Scenario is active in this ticket. For those Tickets it is required to send a reply to the Customer/Employee(requester) before the system status is set to "Completed".

Here is the behavior of the ticket if the SLA determined in it has due date for response milestone:

  1. When the BC question “Suppress SLA with warning” is not scoped in, then in that case, an agent cannot mark the ticket to completed status if the last communication is by the customer.
  2. When the BC question is scoped, agent can mark the ticket to completed even though the last communication is by the customer provided,if there is AT LEAST one communication by the agent.

Note:If there is no interaction by the agent in the ticket,the status cannot be changed even though the scoping question is scoped.


Since you are using the "Due date for response" milestone, we suggest you can either:

  1. Send a reply to the Requester.
  2. Or change the Service Level determination rules and assign only Service Levels w/o "Due Date for Response"
