Current Status widget

The Current Status widget displays any issues reported in the system. You can customize this base system widget to suit your own needs or use it as a base code sample to build your own Service Portal widgets.

The Current Status widget checks the Outages [cmdb_ci_outage] table to see if the system is experiencing any outages.

Service owners and service desk managers report planned or unplanned outages by creating outage records. Each outage record includes Begin and End fields to indicate the duration of the outage. If the End time is later or empty, then the outage is still ongoing. The Current Status widget displays all ongoing outages.
