Prevent Agents From Reassigning Tickets to Other Agents

    Hello Jorge,

    You can't with the native functionality. You will need an app for that, but as far as I know there's no such app available in the marketplace.

    If you have development resources I can point you in the right direction, it's fairly easy to create a private app for this.

    With kind regards,

    Sparkly ⭐

    There might be a way to do this with triggers:

    Lets say agents only work on tickets assigned to them and you want to prevent them moving it to other groups or agents:

    Create a trigger that says the following:


    • Ticket is updated
    • Assignee changed from current user


    • Assignee is current user

    This will result in tickets being rerouted back to the agent IF they change the requester field and change their name into another name.

    If however they assign a ticket to themselves, or pick up an unassigned ticket, the trigger will not run. 

    If you never want assignees to change, just say: Assignee is changed in the conditions.

    It works great, thanks.

    However, how do I exclude the admins?
