Using the assignment of the Incident to CIs and to Product and Incident categories, the Support Knowledge Base is searched for:

  • Known Workarounds
  • Known Errors

  • Relationships to CIs
  • Product category, usually selected from a category-tree according to the following example
    • Client PC
      • Standard configuration 1
      • ...
    • Printer
      • Manufacturer 1
      • ...
    • Incident category, i.e.
      • Hardware error
      • Software error
      • ...
