Administrative closure

Administrative closure moves the status of a ticket from Solved to Closed.

ITIL best practices recommends a validation of the solution by the ticket requester, who validates that the answer provided by the technician corresponds to the demand. However, if the requester does not fulfill this validation, it is possible to parameterize an administrative closure after a delay which can be configured at entity level (see Assistance tab). If this delay is set to zero, the ticket is automatically closed.


(I can’t get no)

A satisfaction survey is triggered when the ticket status is set to Closed and the triggering delay is elapsed. This triggering delay is parameterized at entity level (see Delegate administration at entity level).


The automatic task that triggers the survey must be activated.

When ticket is closed, a notification that includes a link to the satisfaction survey can be sent to the requester. The requester will also have access to the survey from the ticket form in tab Satisfaction.

The requester can then select the satisfaction level (from 0 to 5, given as stars) about the ticket solution. A comment can also be added.

Statistics on surveys are available in statistics.


  • the requester can change the answer to the satisfaction survey within a delay of 12 hours after first answer

  • a notification can be sent when satisfaction survey is generated, but also on each answer to this survey
