  5. Right click on 'assignment group' field -> configure dictionary (You can refer KB0700433 on how to define a dictionary override )
  6. Go to Related links section -> Go to Dictionary Overrides tab
  7. If you have a record with the incident table, open it. If not create a new Dictionary Overrides.
  8. On the Table field, select the Incident table.
  9. On the field, Override reference qualifier -> copy the query which you have copied in step 3
  10. Submit the form.
  11. Now go to the Incident form and click on reference qualifier icon under the assignment group field.
  12. Now you will see only the groups with type as 'incident'
  13. Repeat the steps for change and problem (as per your requirement)
  14. If you want to configure the group type as both incident and change, filter the Group table with Type contains incident and change and from the filter condition, copy the query and paste it in Override reference qualifier under Dictionary Overrides.
  15. Repeat the steps as per your requirement
