Create Internal Service Cases

Internal service cases can be created by users in Service Provider tenants. This type of service case is created by users with the roles 1st Level Support or Service Technician and all information attached to an internal service case stays within the tenant, i.e. no information is shared with the customer operating the machine.

Thereby, the creation of internal service cases is enabled for all customer machines, irrespective of the onboarding status of the customer.

Internal service cases are shown in the same views as shared service cases, the user interface has been designed to clearly distinguish between both types. A pair of new filter buttons was introduced to allow focusing on the most relevant content at any time.

As the Operator tenant is no part of the internal service case workflow, remote access cannot be activated and is not available for internal service cases.
