The  @status attribute must use a value that has been defined in the group properties. For example: “Open”, “Resolved”, “Closed”.


The @priority attribute must use a value that has been defined in the group properties. For example: “High”, “Medium”, “Low”.


It depends on the group configuration but the default is that the member on the request needs to be a reviewer or higher.
