How can I add a status that pauses the SLA?

I'd like to add a status like On Hold or In Progress that pauses the SLA.  For example, sometimes we have to research an issue with an outside vendor, and we would break our SLA every time if the SLA continue to count while we are waiting to hear back.

Can I specify different SLAs for different statuses, or even whether to run the timer on different statuses?

Yes, you can do it. Once you add the status, you can set up to pause the clock when the issue enters that status.

See "Pause on": https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/SERVICEDESK/SLAs#SLAs-AlookathowanSLAisconstructed

Thanks -- somehow I completely missed that SLA Edit page. I was looking to edit the Workflow and also to edit the SLA from under System Administration. Thank you.
