The EGI Helpdesk is GGUS:
Authentication of users is based on X.509 certificates. All users with a valid certificate released by a IGTF CA can have read access to all tickets.
The report generator is the system we are using to collect statistics about usage, distribution of tickets, time to respond and solve tickets etc.
Plenty of documentation is available on-line:
