Hi I would like to set up an SLA that resets the clock once action is performed
Our users need to be updated every 4/8 hrs based on priority of the incident.
I need rule for example that once first response has been action an SLA for 8hrs starts to count down. but if I send update to customer I need the SLA to reset and begin 8hr count down again.
WE have the exact scenario you are talking about. I worked with Atlassian and came up with a solution where it flipped between In Progress and In Progress 2 whenever there was a comment by the agent and set the SLA to start when entering these statuses. This effectively worked but was very clunky:
1. It requires a use of 2 status to keep track on the "waiting for support" stage, and create transitions between them:
2. Create automation rules, IF comments is made by agents and the request is in Waiting for support and Request Type is not empty, THEN transition it to the Waiting for support 2 status, and vice versa (transition back from Waiting for support 2 to waiting for support)
3. Create an SLA, START when Issue created, OR entering status waiting for support, OR entering status waiting for support 2, and STOP when comment for customers
However, I found it so clunky that eventually we purchased Intenso - Extensions for Service Desk which has a reset sla post workflow function.
Hope that helps
Create a post workflow function on the status(es) where if the comment is made you want it to reset the SLA.
Call that workflow transition "Reset SLA". It's only post function is the extensions for service desk (Restart SLA).
Add an automation rule when an agent comments publicly, then transition "Reset SLA".
Note: We use a "Robot" user to do that automation rule and make it conditional that only the robot can transition, so people didn't trigger the transition by mistake.
Hope that helps
There is currently a feature request for this that you can find at JSDSERVER-194. I would suggest voting on the issue and adding your use case to the comments so our devs will consider adding this functionality into JIRA.
You didn't specify Cloud or Server, however, you may want to review this post and review Rober's anwer that states you can do this with MISC Workflow Extension or Script Runner and use the Resolution field and set it on status change then use an automation rule with JQL based on resolutionDate.
Hopefully that helps. Please don't forget to add comments and vote on JSDSERVER-194!
I don't believe resetting SLA timer is possible. You can create multiple SLAs and switch between them by associating w/ a workflow status. You may be able to toggle back in forth between the two status but unsure if timer restarts. Also, I'm wondering if something like this may work...
create a filter something like:
project = ABC and status != resolved and not updated > -4h
and set up a subscription to email every 4hours?
...be more productive while being fun to use at the same time. For some, getting started can be a bit intimidating. This is especially true if Jira Service Desk is your first exposure to Atlassian...
