Operational vs Technical Tickets
Operational tickets are problems or issues related to the rules, workflows, and/or anything ‘’not technical’’ affecting the operations of the registrar. These tickets will be assigned to the right superuser. In counterpart, technical tickets are problems or issues, normal incidents, security incidents that are caused by the platform like a bug, a training issue, refresher, downtime, or anything related to the usage of the platform itself.
