VSHNeers are notified immediately of the creation of new tickets. Higher priority tickets trigger additional internal alert systems for a faster response.
Depending on the priority of the ticket and your support SLA, one or many of the following might happen:
Very often VSHNeers will add comments to the ticket, asking for more information or requesting for your feedback. You will be notified by e-mail of these comments, and you can see the history of conversations in the VSHN Portal.Figure 5. Comments in tickets
If your ticket belongs to a support project, the layout of the ticket list will change significatly, showing the projects and its associated tickets inside, as shown in the picture below.Figure 6. Ticket projects
The ticket list groups tickets depending on their nature:
Tickets that belong to a project; and
Tickets that don’t (yet) belong to a project.
The image below shows these two groups.
|1||Tickets that are part of a project will appear grouped together. Click on the > button to expand the project and access individual tickets.|
|2||Tickets that are not part of a project appear in a separate list.|
When navigating long lists, it can be useful to search for tickets with certain characteristics. The Filter section of the screen allows you to conveniently reduce the scope of your search.

Some tickets might be in such a state that can’t be closed. Only new tickets, tickets in "backlog" and in "customer review" status can be closed. If you need to close such a ticket, please write a comment requesting to change the state.
To communicate secrets to VSHNeers with a secure mechanism, follow these steps:
After creating a new ticket, click on it on the list of tickets, and scroll down until the section "Secrets" is visible.
Click on the Add Secret button.
Enter a name for the secret in the Name field.
Enter the value of the secret in the Secret field.
You can enter any free-text information here, e.g. SSH keys, environment variables, certificates, etc.
Select "Week" or "Day" in the Time to live (TTL) field.
Click on the Save button.
The VSHN Portal is designed in such a way that secrets transmitted through this mechanism can only be viewed once, which prevents anyone else from accessing them.
You can add as many secrets as needed in a single ticket; you do not need to open separate tickets for each (for example, one for each environment). Just enter them in the field separated by whitespace, as shown in the following screenshot.
