Heh :). Well, Justin gave a pretty good example... My "real-world"
example is similar to his.
On Feb 13, I took ticket #12414, which requested a server for hosting
APEX-based applications. I setup a new virtual machine, installed an OS,
assigned it an IP address, etc. Then I created a few "child" tickets.
The first child ticket, #12905, was put in our "networking" queue, and
it asked that the firewall be configured to allow HTTP access from
anywhere to this server. The second child ticket, #12906, asked for an
SSL certificate to be purchased and installed on this new server. The
third child ticket, created some time later, #13048, asked for our
backup server administrator to add this server to a regularly-scheduled
The three child tickets each had unique subjects, were assigned to
differing persons, and were started/completed at different times. They
all had myself as the requester. None of the tickets used any custom
fields, nor did we assign a value to the priority field, so not sure
what makes sense there.
