Search for a Web Help Desk ticket

You can search for a Web Help Desk ticket using a basic or advanced search.

A basic search locates tickets based on the search criteria you enter in a set of predefined fields. An advanced search locates tickets based on any number of search criteria you enter. The search criteria are a set of conditions that must be met.

An advanced search may return results that do not populate in a basic search, even if you use the same query.
