By default, each workflow can only be executed once per ticket unless the system considers the workflow to be “safe.”

A safe workflow is a workflow that:

  • Contains at least one “safe” condition. This is related to workflows where all conditions must be met.
  • Every condition in the workflow is “safe.” This is related to workflows where any condition must be met.

The safe conditions are as follows:

  • Ticket created
  • Status changed
  • Priority Changed
  • Agent Changed
  • Team Changed
  • New message contains
  • Tag: has been added
  • Tag: has been removed
  • Follower: has been added
  • Follower: has been removed

Also, the “Time passed since” condition is also a safe condition, but only if both conditions in the table below are met:
