Good News Everyone

Our Zendesk users have asked, begged and pleaded for a way to change the requester for a Watchman Monitoring generated tickets. To quote Futurama’s Professor Hubert J. Farnsworth, “Good News Everyone!” We have a way to change the ticket requester with a trigger which when combined with the Watchman Monitoring trigger will allow you to change the ticket requester automatically when a ticket is created.
