    If a ticket field is removed, will this affect historical data where the deleted field was used on a ticket?

    Hey Tikisha - 

    The following article answers your question and provides some additional helpful info: 

    Best practices for altering your custom ticket fields

    Basically, it won't impact historic data, but it will no longer show on the ticket. Once a ticket is closed, the data will always be in the API. 

    I hope that helps - let us know if you have any further questions!

    Is it possible to restore a removed/deleted ticket field?

  • Nicole - Community Manager

    Hi Diastowo - 

    Unfortunately there is not. Once it's been deleted, you would need to re-create it.

    Is it possible to add Agent / role  permission based ticket fields? I would like to add a ticket field and allow only certain roles to be able to edit the field. the only permission I found was between Agents / End users.

    Hi Arianna,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    It unfortunately isn't possible to restrict a ticket field by role, but you may be able to work around that if you are using multiple ticket forms. You could set up different ticket forms for different groups, and use the contextual workspaces feature to assign specific ticket forms to those groups in order to limit access to the fields on the different forms. 

    Please don't hesitate to open up a ticket with our support team if you want to look at any examples.
