Priority: In Incident, you can’t set the Priority field directly.

The values of the Impact and Urgency fields calculate the Priority field. When synchronizing from AWS, we set by default the fields shown in the table below.

Business Critical System Down (Enterprise support plan only) critical 1 – Critical 1

Production System Down

urgent 2 – High 2
Production System Impaired high 3 – Moderate 3

System Impaired

normal 4 – Low 4

General Guidance

low 5 – Planning 5
