  • James Dorney

    Another vote for this functionality.  Any update or ETA?

  • Ian

    I have followed this recipe and figured out how to display the incident subject line, but how can i display the problem ticket subject line?

    Below displays the problem ticket ID, then the individual incident ticket subject lines, but i would like the problem ticket subject on column 2


  • Brettany Rhodes

    Another +1 for this functionaity. Need Problem Ticket Subject and priority.

    Hi @... and @... –

    If you don't mind, for visibility can you both upvote and add information on your respective use cases to this Explore product feedback thread? Problem and Incident tickets - need a way to view the subject and detail of all incident tickets against a problem ticket, or vice versa


  • Tina Yates

    when will the attribute of "Linked problem" be added into Explore? What is the point of the attribute if you can't report on it you are forcing us to create a custom attribute for something that already exists.

  • Dave Dyson

    Hi Tina, answering your question here as well: I don't have an update for you on this, but I see you've added a comment (and hopefully upvoted) this product feedback thread, which is the best place to watch for updates: Problem and Incident tickets - need a way to view the subject and detail of all incident tickets against a problem ticket, or vice versa

  • Tina Yates

    Is there a way to report on Problem tickets that are still open, it seems that when I report on ticket status it is based on the Incidents and not the Problem.

    Hi Tina Yates

    This would be because this recipe uses the metric called "Incidents". Instead, just use the metric "Problems".

    Hi Zendesk, 

    I want a dashboard with the Problem Ticket ID + the number of incidents.

    I followed your tips, but the number of incidents is not correct:

    For instance, the 1st line indicates 217 incidents, while there are in facts 980:

    How can I get accurate data?



  • Tim B.

    I have the same issue as Julie above: the number of incidents is wildly inaccurate. Why?

  • r.martin

    +1 to the above, the number of incidents is inaccurate, frustrating as we need this report to manage our bug process.

  • Tim Janis

    Also pushing for this to be addressed - it completely handicaps our team if we cannot accurately report on incident counts without diving into each problem ticket individually.
