Errors and troubleshoot

Case 1: "Looks like you have delinked the work item from Zoho Desk"

When you delink the ticket added as work item in Zoho Desk, you cannot access the ticket details from Zoho Sprints. Instead, you can see a Zoho Desk label tagged next to the work item name. This indicates that the work item is added via Zoho Desk. 

Troubleshoot: You have to add the ticket as a work item in Zoho Desk. The corresponding ticket will be added as a new work item in Zoho Sprints. The previous work item will just indicate that the work item is added via Zoho Desk. 

Case 2: "You don't have permission to view the ticket details." 

The assignee of the ticket should be a user in Zoho Sprints. If the user is not a part of any one of the applications, then the user cannot access the ticket details from Zoho Sprints.

Troubleshoot: Make sure that the user is added in both the applications. 

Remove integration

You can disable the integration only from Zoho Desk. 
  1. Navigate to Settings in Zoho Desk.

  5. Click  in the upper-right corner.
  6. Select Uninstall Extension.
Once you uninstall the extension, all the mapped work items will be delinked in Zoho Sprints. You cannot retain the mapping once you install the extension back in Zoho Desk. You have to link it again.
