Re: [rt-users] Move tickets to queue but don't allow ticket creation

We have a "Triage" queue and a number of problem-type queues. Ideally,
we'd like to allow tickets to only be created in the Triage queue and

the "Create Ticket" permission on a queue to move tickets to it.

Is there any way of achieving what we want?

Thanks,

I'm assuming that you have specific people who process the triage queue. 
Put them in a Triage group.


Give everyone the right to create tickets in Triage.

Triage people have the right to create tickets in the problem queues.

Requestors can SeeTicket, Reply, (SeeQueue?) and other standard stuff 
everywhere.


This should funnel all the requests as long as you can make sure the 
Triage people follow the rules. :-)

"stalled" is an active status. I know the word feels "inactive", but
according to the default lifecycle, it is active.

https://github.com/bestpractical/rt/blob/stable/etc/RT_Config.pm.in#L3034

An active status is one where you expect it to change: new, open, stalled.
An in-active status is one where you don't, i.e. a "final resting 
state": rejected, resolved, deleted.

Re: [rt-users] supplying database credentials to rt-fulltext-indexer

Hi all,
I think I can say definitely that this is a bug. I added the DB 
credentials to RT_SiteConfig.pm and, suddenly, the indexer started 
working perfectly. Yet RT itself pulls the exact same credentials from 
RT_SiteConfig.d/03-DBInfo.pm with no trouble. I have all my settings 
in multiple files under RT_SiteConfig.d, and they all work. It's just 
rt-fulltext-indexer that seems to have trouble accessing them. This 
explains a lot, and hopefully gets fixed in the next release. Thanks 
for everyone's suggestions and help.
Permissions on RT_SiteConfig.d/03-DBInfo.pm are such that the user 
running rt-fulltext-indexer can read them? Alternately you're not 
running rt-fulltext-indexer from an earlier release (4.2.x) that didn't 
support RT_SiteConfig.d?

Greetings Jeff:

Thank you for your reply.

The use case for random IDs is quite simple.   Ascending / serial 
number of IDs compromises confidentiality.  End users would be able to 
guess how busy I could be with the amount of tickets answered.  Its 
something I don't want to disclose.   Almost ALL ticketing systems I 
have seen, have a random arbitrary numeric or alpha-numeric ID.  Any 
other suggestions on how to approach not displaying an obvious number 
to end users?


Thanks!
Reza.


The increasing ticket number is baked into the Ticket table definition:
`id` int(11) NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT,

There's probably bits of code that assume this works this way.

The proper way to do this is to copy the setting from RT_Config.pm to 
RT_SiteConfig.pm and change it there. That way you won't loose your 
changes when you upgrade to a newer RT and RT_Config.pm changes under 
your feet.  RT_SiteConfig.pm logically overwrites RT_Config.pm as far as

 There was no RT release labeled 2.4, and you should be more specific

 You haven't really provided helpful details (such as authorization and

Basically, what I'm seeing is, when you edit the RT at a glance at a 
user level -- that user has Opted Out of the global changes.  Once 
you choose Reset to Default in RT at a glance at the user level (and 
log out and log in) you then take on the Global changes again!


Make sense?

I guess I can now go back to my original question and ask how to get

Re: [rt-users] PErl question for RT Status values

 To list,

 In the past (3.6.4) I was able to add a couple values for my @active
 ticket statuses by modifying the RT_SiteCOnfig.pm values thus:

 @ActiveStatus = ('new', 'open', 'pending QA', 'QA approvd', 'stalled')
 unless @ActiveStatus;

 Now, with the more stringent syntax, I have this:

 Set(@ActiveStatus, (qw(''new' 'open' 'pending QA' 'QA approvd' 'stalled')));

 The problem is that the single quotes end up as part of the value. I
 can't just remove them because I need to protect the integreity of two
 values that include an embedded space ('pending QA' and 'QA approvd').

 I'm only a perl newbie, so I'm not sure how to get around this problem.
 Can anyone out there show me the correct syntax to add my two status
 values and keep the integrity of the embedded space?

 Thanks.

Try
Set( @ActiveStatus, ('new', 'open', 'pending QA', 'QA approvd', 'stalled'));

You can use quotes or qw, but not both.

 So, the problem with making things that wide in the default view is 
 that on many browsers and screens, the query view gets cut off:/
Then the contents of the fields need to be shorter, or ragged left, or 
something.  the 3.4 and 3.5 skins don't specify a width so things are

 Jeff, always Cc the list.

 As far as I can see you suffer from mysql bug, output from your server

 index in those test queries I sent to the list.

 There are several options:
 1) Delete any indexes on CachedGroupMembers table which starts from
 MemberId column, but that will slowdown other queries and may be
 terribly, depends on proprotions of your DB.
 2) Upgrade to mysql 5.0.45 or greater and create index I suggested in
 this thread earlier.
 3) I have another idea how we can improve that in the code, but that
 needs more investigation with a lot of users' feedback and a lot of
 mine and users' time.

 As long as MySQL 4.x has ended its life time and 5.0.x is stable
 version then I think it's fair enough to recommend recent versions
 instead of continuose refactoring of the code to make all those broken
 mysqls happy.
   
I'll try to remember to reply all from here on in.

We're on Mysql-5.0.22 as packaged by RedHat for Enterprise Linux 5.1.

Dropping indexes for now.  Can re-instate later. Then I can also drop my

Stefan, in a nutshell, this is the default behavior of RT.  Users get
created when added as CC to a ticket, or when some 'outside' user creates a
ticket via email.

But those users are disabled by default - they don't have permissions.  The
reason you don't see those users in the drop-down list is because you need
to select 'include disabled users in search' at the bottom of the screen.

I don't think you can delete those users other than removing them manually
from the DB - but I don't think that would be a good idea.  There is no
reason to delete them in the first place.


James Moseley


Hi,

I have some users in our RT 3.6.3 which seem to be created
automagically by having someone placing their email-address into some
fields (I think some users have CC'ed them like in their email-system)
However, they do not appear in most drop-down lists, where I can choose
users, only in some.

But how can I get rid of them, they do not show up in the users list,
and how can I change this behaviour? Is it enough to clean them out of
the Users-table in the database? And is there a configuration parameter
to stop them from appearing?

Regards, Stefan
  

There are basically 3 states for users:
- Disabled
- Casual/SelfServe
- Can own tickets.

Autocreated users are Casual and have no rights.

Configuration/Users lists people who can own tickets.
The search function will find Casual users as well (unless you click on 
include disabled users


Odds are that what you want to do is search for the email address, 
update the user and make sure to click on the Let this user be granted 
rights button under the Access Control section. Then you can add them 
to groups and allow them access to queues now that they are Real people.


No mucking with the database is necessary.

 What is the difference between depended on by vs. parent?

 Thanks,

I'm sure this is open to interpretation...

To me, depends / depended on by indicate separate tasks that must 
be performed in sequence. I.e. I have to finish the one task before 
the other task can _start_.


And parent / child indicate composition of tasks. I.e. the child 
task is part of the parent.  I say I have to finish the one task 
before the other task can _finish_.



My 2cents.

I believe RT enforces the depends on relationship - you can't 
resolve a ticket until its dependent ticks are resolved. I don't think 
there's any such enforcement for parent/child relationships. At least 
I think that's the right way round.

Children can outlive their parents, but you can't finish something 
before you finish the things it depends on.

When I've come across an undeletable reminder, it has always been the
case that the associated ticket was moved to a different queue *after*
the reminder was created.  Thus the reminder (which is stored in the
same Tickets table in the DB) now has a different queue number than
its associated ticket.  Changing the queue on the reminder (using SQL)
so that it matches the queue on the ticket should clear up your problem,
if this is what has happened to you as well.

Subject: [rt-users] Phantom Reminder

I have a reminder that is owned by 'Nobody' that shows up on the 
front page when I am logged into the system as root. Clicking on the 
reminder link takes me into the ticket under which the reminder was 
created.


However, when I am in that ticket, no reminders are shown. The ticket 
has been resolved, but I tried setting the status back to open just for

fun.

When logged in as my normal user, I can't see the reminder, but when 
I log in with 2 different accounts that are superusers, I can see the 
reminder on RT at a glance.


How do I make this thing go away?
I suspect the problem is the Queue bit of the SQL query in 
lib/RT/Reminders.pm in Collection (line 88 in 3.6.HEAD).
I'm running without it here and things are better.  Still problems 
closing a reminder if you don't have proper perms on

the original queue.

Yes.  Other (smaller) PNG images work.  Not sure what the upper limit is, but I 
reduce the size of the image down to 3k, it works.
  
The autohandler copies the selected file over after setting the 
content_type.

The codes does
   local $/ = \16384;
   $m-out($_) while ($fh);

shouldn't that be
   local $/ = undef;
   $m-out($_) while ($fh);

?
