Triggered

When an incident is open, it will be in the Triggered state. Concerned users will get notified when an incident is in Triggered state. It will remain in this state until someone acknowledges it.

Acknowledged

Incident shifts from Triggered to Acknowledged state when any user acknowledges it. The user can now look into the incident and try to solve it. If the incident is Reassigned or escalated to another user, it will go back to a triggered state, until the new user takes responsibility for it and acknowledges the incident.

Resolved

Incidents can be marked as Resolved to close them.

Suppressed

Sometimes, the incidents can be in a Suppressed state - this happens when the alert notification was not meant to go out for some reason like the Service was under maintenance.
