Prohibiting a closed service desk ticket to not be able to be opened after a period of time

Does anyone know if there is a way with the service desk to prohibit a customer from re-opening a service desk ticket after a period of time? I'm guessing I could do it with some sort of automation or plugin. However, I was wondering if there was a way to do this with the service desk out of the box? Thoughts much appreciated.

By default the service desk tickets are set up with workflows and SLA's automatically designed to handle this. Basically, tickets can go to the status "Resolved" or "Cancelled".

Once there, an SLA begins counting time for 3 days. At the end of the three days, if the ticket hasn't been reopened, it will be automatically transitioned into the "Closed"  status. The closed status has no outgoing transitions and therefore cannot be reopened.


Does this make sense?


Yes. Thank you. Can one adjust the 3 days?
