A field or data element used on a ticket that signifies the level of criticality of the ticket as it relates to the affected part(s) of the organization. For example, Urgency might be ?Critical? if it severely impacts a department. However, in an ITIL / Incident Management configuration, this is not necessarily the same as?Priority. Rather, a?Priority Matrix?is used to map the Impact (who is affected) and the Urgency to a Priority.
