Without going that far, I would have thought that the names would tell you that one is something asked for and the other is something occurring. _________________ "Method goes far to prevent trouble in business: for it makes the task easy, hinders confusion, saves abundance of time, and instructs those that have business depending, both what to do and what to hope."

Could anyone please explain difference between service request and incident with a suitable example of each.
The service request is a request for information/help. For example, creation of an user account is the service request (common work).
The incident is something like out of the schedule - f.e. reset of password.
Service Request (ITILv3): [Service Operation] A request from a User for information, or advice, or for a Standard Change or for Access to an IT Service. For example to reset a password, or to provide standard IT Services for a new User. Service Requests are usually handled by a Service Desk, and do not require an RFC to be submitted.
