Using a Command Line to Create an Incident
This is a command line that allow you to create a Helpdesk (HD) incident from a remote location. It uses the Web service that's packaged with the Helpdesk to do the heavy lifting.

This is a command line, so use Internet Explorer or another application/program installed on your computer to run it.
The Web service can either take command line parameters (type "CreateWorkitem or Edit Workitem" to see them) or by using specific commands required for a 3rd party application.

The values of lookups is from the worker administrator Console HD, Admin > Lookups then select lookup and click view.
Additionally, you can use http://MYSERVERHD/AeXHD/WebService.asmx to send in the your page on the Web Services.
