Hello Everyone

The latest build of Service Manager (2164) has been released to live.

Change Log for this release are as follows:


  • A process can now be suspended to wait for attachments to be added to a Request. This can be achieved through "Requests > Suspend > Wait for Attachment" Hornbill Automation. - See more on the wiki https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php/Service_Manager_Business_Process_Workflow#Wait_for_Attachment
  • Problem Management has been extended to record the Root Cause and aid in automating the creation of a Known Error from a Problem record. We have introduced "Problems > Update Problem > Details" Hornbill Automation to update the Root Cause and Workaround attributes in a Problem record. We extended the "Requests > Log Request > Log New Known Error" Hornbill Automation to provide the options to set Root Cause and Workaround attributes. To get the attributes from a Problem record, the "Problems > Get Information > Problem Details" Hornbill Automation can be used. Alternatively, if it is required for the Root Cause and Workaround attributes to be set after a Known Error record is created, the "KnownErrors > Update Known Error > Details" Hornbill Automation can be used in a Known Error process. - See more on the new Hornbill Automation tasks on the wiki https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php/Service_Manager_Business_Process_Workflow#Problem_Records
  • A process can now be suspended to wait for a Request to be linked. This can be achieved through "Requests > Suspend > Wait for Linked Requests" Hornbill Automation. - See more on the wiki https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php/Service_Manager_Business_Process_Workflow#Wait_for_Linked_Requests


  • When creating or updating a Service, the description attribute is no longer mandatory.
  • The "Suspend" Hornbill Automation tasks are no longer selectable when designing Auto Tasks.
  • When the Used By attribute in an asset is shared with multiple entities, the label "Shared" will be shown in the corresponding column on the Assets list. - See more on the wiki https://wiki.hornbill.com/index.php?title=Manage_Assets
