Parent and child security incident relationships

You can associate and track the impact of any given issue using parent and child security incident relationships in Security Incident Response.

Using the Related Records tab, you can add a Parent security incident issue to any Security Incident Response form. This feature automatically makes the incident a child that appears in the Related Lists - Child Security Incidents tab of the parent issue.

Note: All work notes recorded in the parent are propagated to any active children in Activities under the Incident Details tab.

When a parent is closed or canceled, any active children are also closed or canceled. Any active Response Tasks on the child incident(s) are canceled. If there are no other open Tasks, the child incident is closed. When closed, the Post Incident Interview records the closure and the information found on the Closure Information tab is propagated from the parent to the children.
