Create custom status labels in
You can create additional status labels for the events and cases in as needed for your business processes.
Statuses are grouped into three categories: New, Open, and Resolved. You can create up to 10 total status labels in .
Status label rules
Status labels must adhere to the following rules:
- At least one status label must exist for each of the status categories.
- The labels New, Open, and Closed are available upon upgrade. These three labels can be deleted, removing them from the active list. These labels cannot be renamed because they are required for backwards compatibility with apps and playbooks.
To maintain backwards compatibility with apps and existing playbooks, if the status labels New, Open, or Closed have been deleted, ingestion apps and the REST API can still assign the statuses New, Open, and Closed to containers.
