Compare with the External System's Incident

Navigate to the corresponding Incident in the external system.
Check the values in the fields match those you noted when you saved the Incident in the internal system.
Your external system's Incident record should look like this (depending on the system you're integrating with, your record may look different; the important matter is that the values match):
11) Activities: < Your Work note > (added by < your.external.system.user >)

Challenge

    Repeat the steps above - this time placing a check in the 'Additional comments (Customer visible)' checkbox.
    What do you expect to happen?
As when testing our CreateIncident Message, if completing this test after having integrated with the external system (as opposed to connecting to your own instance), it would be good to test the UpdateIncident Message in both directions.
We are now ready to move to the Resolve Scenario.
