Past Incidents
Jul 28, 2021
Resolved - The following Cherwell impacts have been resolved.

Emails sent to the Cherwell email addresses for PS App Admin, Comptroller, ITK, and Knowledge and Training received from a non ISU email address and do not include a Reply-To or the Reply-To header is blank are not populating with “Unknown User”. This was resolved 10:59 AM 7/28.

The “Filtering a dashboard search list by a column field may produce an error” does not appear to be a system wide error and will need to be reported and investigated on an individual basis.

The Global updates searches have been updated to account for the new behavior when an email is sent after a ticket is resolved.

This resolves the known impacts after the maintenance. Any remaining impacts will be handled through normal change and maintenance processes. Any issues with Cherwell should be reported to the Technology Support Center.
