This article describes the criteria for reopening an Incident (INC), the most complex type of support case.
In some cases, it is more appropriate to open a new case rather than reopen a previously resolved case. For example, to report the same issue in a different environment or to ask a question about a previously resolved case, create a new case (an INC).
From within My Support Portal, you can reopen an Incident that was resolved within the past three months (90 days) if the Incident meets one or more of the criteria defined in the following table:
|Recurrence of problem||The problem stopped occurring before it was fully understood; however, it has since reoccurred.|
|Short-term solution issue||The short-term solution provided for the problem has not completely solved the issue or has introduced a new issue.|
|Hotfix issue||The hotfix provided for the issue has not completely solved the issue or has introduced a new issue.|
|Explanation issue||The explanation provided for the issue does not hold true in all scenarios.|
|Resource availability||The technical resource assigned by the client for their Pega account to work with the Pega support team was previously unavailable. Now that person is sufficiently available to work with the Pega support team.|
