    Reply to existing incidents create a new incident
    Need to get all history of an incident in one incident not a new incident for every reply

    I created a business rule that emails incident information to an agent and after he replies to this mail I receive a new incident contains the new and old data.

    The issue here is that I want the incoming reply to be on the same incident with the same number (One incident updated with all actions and replies not to separate and create a new incident on every reply)

    As shown in the below example:

    The original incident is 190620-000011 but after replying it became 190620-000012

      That is correct and standard behavior. You can change this but it's not something I advice.
      Have a look at the configuration setting EGW_SECURE_UPDATE_MODE
      You would need to change that and use the original incident ref no. in your subject.

      Abetter alternative is to modify the message template and to include a URL to the incident in BUI. This way your agent can change the incident (add an entry, private note, change status etc)

      Also check that it's not related to MYQ_REOPEN_DEADLINE (this would affect all replies, not just from agents responding to an email created by business rules)

      yeah he shouldnt be responding unless you disable secure update (which i wouldnt recomend), its better if he just logs in and works the incident through the console. You can also put in a business rule that says if an email comes in to the outreach mailbox (which is what sends those notification emails) then do not create incident.
