Agent auto-assignment using rating-based criteria Rating-based methods, such as location, skills, and time zones, help you auto-assign agents based on configuration settings and optional properties. The calculated ratings are used to determine the best agent for the security incident or response task. Any combination of rating-based methods can be enabled in the application configuration screen. When a task is created, a rating for each type of enabled selection criteria is calculated for each available agent. The agent whose total rating is highest is considered for auto-assignment. The settings for the auto-assignment weighting properties, found in Security Incident > Administration > Properties, are included in the rating calculations. These values help you prioritize which auto-assignment selection criteria is more important to your organization. Set the priority values between 1 (less important) and 10 (important). For an example of how the weighting properties affect agent ratings, see Agent auto-assignment using multiple selection criteria.
