Report an incident anonymously - Web Portal

Web Portal operations


The web portal can be the gateway for reporting incidents anonymously, or for users who do not have an Octopus account and whose identity is not required.

Anonymous incidents can be useful to enable the submission of complaints or reports that do not require any specific follow-up with the customer.
The page for creating an anonymous incident is accessed via a special link, which must be published or forwarded to the persons concerned, regardless of the authentication mode on the web portal.

When the incident is created, the requester will always be the same, regardless of who submits the request.

It is not possible to specify which particular incident / SR template will be used; a pre-configured incident will be created.
