ResolveIncident Fields
We will utilise the Field & Field Map records to configure the Message Scripts for the ResolveIncident Message.
The 'message_header', 'incident.comments', 'incident.work_notes' and 'incident.short_description' Field records are already be in place because they were also copied when we copied the Message. We can choose to include, or exclude as many of those and the Integration level ones that are available depending on our requirements (by either activating or deactivating the relevant Fields). We have chosen not to include 'incident.short_description' in our mappings, so we'll delete that.
In Unifi Integration Designer, from the ResolveIncident Message, navigate to Message > Fields.
1) Click on the ellipsis to the right of the incident.short_description Field & click Delete.
2) Confirm Delete.
Deleting here only deletes the Field record for this message. The integration level record and any other message level ones remain in place.

Field: incident.state (Message level)

Unifi created the incident.state (Integration level) Field record earlier. It is, therefore, displayed in the list with Active set to false.
The fields to be changed to configure the incident.state (Message level) Field record are as follows:
#
Field
Description
Value
3
Active
Set to true to create a Message level Field record from its Integration level counterpart.
<true>
By simply setting the Active flag to true on the Integration level Field record listed on the Message, Unifi has created the Message level counterpart.
Your ResolveIncident Message Fields page should look like this:
The empty circle icon next to the Field name turns green & contains a green ‘check’ (to indicate that Message level configuration exists for this Field).
We will now configure Field records for the two remaining Incident record field elements which are required.

Fields & Field Maps

The table below lists the Incident record field elements we will map and the relevant Field Maps required to configure each Field record.
Incident Field
Field Map
close_code
'IG - Choice'*
close_notes
'IG - String'*
*Field map: Values may vary (dependent on your configuration of the copies). Choose the copy Field Maps you created earlier.

Field: incident.close_code (Message level)

There is no need to ‘Generate field choices’ for Message level Field records because the Field Map always looks for them on an Integration level Field which has the same name.
As with 'incident.state' the 'incident.close_code' Field record is a Choice 'type' Field. We will, therefore, configure the choices once at the Integration level. We’ll first configure the Message level Field and then move on to configure the choices on its Integration level counterpart.
From the ResolveIncident Message, navigate to Message > Fields. Click New.
The fields to be configured for our incident.close_code (Message level) New Field modal are as follows:
#

The incident.close_code Field record opens to the Details page.
