Viewing service tickets and status

You can view information about service tickets that were manually and automatically submitted to the Lenovo Support Center using Call Home, including the current status and associated service files that were transferred to the Lenovo Support Center, and service tickets that were generated by support services other than Call Home.


To view service tickets in XClarity Administrator, click the Administration > Service and Support, and then click Service Ticket Status in the left navigation to display the Service Ticket Status page.

The Service Ticket Number column shows the ID of the service ticket that was opened for an event. If multiple service tickets were opened for the same event (for example, one in the Lenovo Support Center and another in a ServiceNow integrator), there are separate rows in the table for each service ticket. You can find the corresponding service ticket in the Cross Reference ID column. For example, if the Service Ticket Number shows the Lenovo Support service ticket ID, then the Cross Reference ID shows the ServiceNow service ticket ID, and vice versa.

The Type column identifies the type of service ticket that is listed in Service Ticket Number column. The service-ticket type can be one of the following values.
  • IBM Call Home

  • IBM Call Home Test

  • Lenovo Call Home

  • Lenovo Call Home Test

  • Lenovo Software Call Home

  • Lenovo Software Call Home Test

  • Cherwill

  • ServiceNow

A service ticket can be in one of the following states:
  • Active

The Cross Reference ID column contains the ID of service tickets from external support services (such as ServiceNow) that are related to the Lenovo service ticket.
