Configuring Service Center

Ticket status mapping between Tigerpaw and Barracuda Managed Workplace is two-way, which means that you can select the appropriate Tigerpaw ticket status for ticket updates from Barracuda Managed Workplace, and you can select the appropriate Barracuda Managed Workplace ticket status for ticket updates from Tigerpaw. This two-way mapping allows you to control how statuses are mapped when the number of statuses between the two systems is inconsistent. It is strongly recommended that you maintain consistency in status mapping between the two systems.

You can create custom ticket statuses in Barracuda Managed Workplace in addition to the four system statuses, to map to Tigerpaw ticket statuses. For more information, see Creating Custom Ticket Statuses.
