Hi @Sindhu D M ,

What you are looking for is achievable using an SLA and an automation rule;

You can start by creating a new SLA triggered when you entered your state X, which is paused when the assignee is defined, and stops counting when you exit status X.

Then, you can create an Automation rule triggered when this SLA is breached, sending an e-mail to the desired person :)


Let me know if it helps,


can we have option to know whether the ticket is in same state for more  than 10 min, then alert the agents?

I guess you could use the same automation rule, and send an e-mail to the current assignee or mention him in a comment using the following smart value :
