Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service work center.
  2. Select the Tickets view.
  3. Open Ticket ID XYZ (XYZ represents the Ticket ID).
  4. Go to the Skills tab and click on Add.
  5. Add Skill ID 123 (123 represents the Skill ID).
  6. Check the Mandatory box and Save.
  7. Now go to the Involved Parties tab and add Service Technician ABC (ABC represents the ID of a Service Technician that does not have the Skill 123 assigned).
  8. Click on Save.
  9. Your entries have been saved.


The mandatory flag is meant as a check for the assignment of Demands on the Resource Scheduler. It does not prevent save action on the Ticket.


This is the expected system behavior.
