[rt-users] Attachments are dropped randomly from correspondence

2016-10-05 Thread Tilo Villwock

Hello,

we're struggling with a problem where attachments get randomly dropped 
from a submitted correspondence in a ticket.


we're using RT 4.4.1 in production on a RHEL 6 server with a PostgreSQL 
9.1 backend on another server. The application is NOT configured with 
external storage for attachments and as such - as per your documentation 
- everything is being base64 encoded and inserted into the database.


It also seems that uploading the attachments to the RT server works just 
fine because the previews (where applicable) work perfectly. However, on 
submit only a subset of the attachments apparently make it into the 
database. I've double checked this in the actual table in the database.


A few more observations:

* there is absolutely no error message in the logs (the level is set to 
debug) when files are being uploaded or the correspondence is submitted


* there seems no correlation whatsoever to the file type, file size or 
number of files that have been attached as we've tested multiple 
scenarios (pdfs, zip archives, images, text files) and they all randomly 
failed to be included


* there was one subscriber mail delivery error that occurred when 
attaching 8 images with a total size of ~20Mb (the error was reported as 
critical in the log, however, no further explanation)


We've upgraded from a previous version (4.2.10) and it worked perfectly 
before with the same setup. The following is our RT_SiteConfig.pm with 
credentials redacted:


Set( $rtname, '');
Set($LogToFile, 'debug');
Set($LogDir, '/var/log/rt');
Set($LogToFileNamed, "rt.log");
Set($WebPort, 443);
Set($WebPath, '/rt');
Set($WebDomain , '');
my $port = RT->Config->Get('WebPort');
Set($WebBaseURL,

 . RT->Config->Get('WebDomain')
 . ($port != 80 && $port != 443? ":$port" : '')
);

Set($DatabaseName, "");

Set($UserAutocreateDefaultsOnLogin, 0);

Set($MaxAttachmentSize , 1000);
Set($RTAddressRegexp , '');

Set($CorrespondAddress , 'RT::CorrespondAddress.not.set');

# Plugin( "RT::Extension::QuickDelete" );

Set(

 # we color owners consistently by default, you can disable it via:
 # ColorSchemeByOwner => 0,

 # you can specify colors to use, unspecified owners will be
 # assigned to some color automatically:
 # ColorSchemeByOwner => { root => 'ff', foo => '00ff00' },

 # if can't find both start and end dates, use this color
 NullDatesColor => 333,

 # to caculate day length
 WorkingHoursPerDay => 8,

 # used to set start/end if one exists but the other does not
 DefaultDays => 7,
);


1;




The config variable 'WebRemoteUserEnv' is a modification of ours that 
simply allows us to use a different variable name than the previously 
hardcoded 'REMOTE_USER'.


I also realize that setting MaxAttachmentSize has currently no effect 
since neither TruncateLongAttachments nor DropLongAttachments are set. I 
believe this is simply a remainder of an older config iteration.


Has anyone run into the same difficulties? Am I missing something in the 
configuration? I wonder if this is somehow related to the new uploader 
component.


Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

[rt-users] Attachments from the UI

2016-04-18 Thread Beck J Mr
Hi All,

We have upgraded to 4.4.0 from 4.2.11 and we are seeing non-privileged users 
are not able to attach files using the UI, either by drag-and-drop, or by 
browsing for a file. All looks well in the UI; we see the progress bar and a 
nice, big tick to say the file has been uploaded, but the file does not get 
posted on the ticket.

E-mail attachments work okay as far as we can tell, and we cannot see anything 
relevant in error.log or rt.log.

Has anybody seen this behaviour?

Running Ubuntu Server 14.04.

Thanks

James

I have tested this locally and it appears to me that all attachments should be 
broken for unprivileged users using the SelfService UI. This is a result of the

I have created a patch for this that appears to fix this problem. You will find

I have one user that has used RT for a while with no problems. Recently, her

attachments and they appear to upload successfully but there’s no trace of them 
in the Attachments table. We tried multiple browsers and the same thing

Any ideas on what I might try?

We’re running RT 4.4 and use LDAP for authentication.

I would start by checking the rights for these two users and how they might be 
different.

Can the faulty user see the missing attachment’s associated 
comment/correspondence? If the user cannot, that is why the attachment is 
missing. A user needs the ShowTicketComments right to see attachments added as 
part of a comment.

If this is not the problem, then I can investigate further.

b) started using HTML templates

[rt-users] Attachments

2014-08-25 Thread Moose
We have a workflow where when a ticket is created, a dependent approval
ticket is also created. This dependent is the Review stage for the
originating ticket before it hits the real Approvals stage and is
processed.

One of our users needs to be able to approve a Review by email (without
ever looking at RT due to network restrictions). This means he would need to
receive correspondence containing the originating ticket data, then respond
to that using keywords to approve. We have achieved this behaviour but
cannot call the originating ticket attachments.

If a file is attached to the original ticket when created, we need to also
attach it to the Review ticket and then mail it out with the Review
correspondence.

Here is our Review ticket create template which also emails the nominated
reviewer.

===Create-Ticket: Review Approval
RT-Attach-Message: yes
Subject: REVIEW [{$Tickets{TOP}-Id} - {$Tickets{TOP}-Subject}]
Depended-On-By: TOP
Queue: ReviewApproval
Owner: {$Tickets{TOP}-FirstCustomFieldValue('Nominate Reviewer');}
Requestors: {$Tickets{TOP}-RequestorAddresses}
Type: approval
Due: {time + 86400}
Content-Type: text/html
Content:
(CONTENT REMOVED)
ENDOFCONTENT

The following attempts haven't worked for us but outline what we are trying
to achieve;

Miroslav,

You can modify the resolve template to include the last comment and/or
include any attachments. When the ticket is resolved and the email sent, the
template will include all the data you want. I have an example if you want
it.

[rt-users] Attachments using REST in VB.NET

2011-05-26 Thread Todd Burton
Hi,

I am currently developing an application using VB.NET in which I am accessing 
RT using the REST interface. So far, I have been able to successfully create 
tickets and modify their history by referencing the Request Tracker Wiki. 
However, I have not been able to add an attachment to a ticket. I have done 
extensive research online, but so far I have not been able to find any working 
examples in VB.NET. To actually upload the data to RT, I use 
System.Net.WebClient. The following VB.NET code does the important work:

Dim Client As New System.Net.WebClient
Dim postBytes As Byte() = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postString)
Client.UploadData(URL, POST, postBytes)

A simplified version of my URL is as follows:
..//REST/1.0/ticket/ + ticketNumber + /comment?user= + userName + pass= 
+ password

Finally, an example of the content that I post is:
postString = content=Text: RT Test + vbLf + Action: Comment + vbLf + 
Attachment: examplefile.jpg + vbLf + attachment_1=

As you can see, the postString is converted to bytes and then uploaded to the 
RT server. However, I do not know where or how I should be posting the raw 
attachment itself. The RT wiki mentions that it should be in a variable 
attachment_1, which I added to the postString variable, but I am not sure 
what the next step should be. Should the file be converted into bytes and 
appended to the postBytes variable? I attempted something like this but I 
received an error saying that no attachment was found for examplefile.jpg.

Thanks for your help!
Todd Burton

Hi Russlan 

I'm not the programmer, so I'm not very famous with the codes in the 2nd
link you've provided. But if you remember, we have bough a single contract
in the past for helping us with some incident within company (EON.IT
Slovakia - Viktor Franik was the technician on our side)

But, we need to have all 3 buttons: Comment, Reply, Resolve within ticket.

Comment - using for internal comments within ticket, works with attachment. 
Reply - when contacting the user without closing ticket, works with
attachment. 
Resolve - closing ticket with a resolution message (we need to have here
also attachments). 

The email templates for Reply and Resolve are different. 

So if you can navigate me, what to do, to make possible that attachments
will be send also with Resolve email template.

You can modify the resolve template to include the last comment and/or

template will include all the data you want. I have an example if you want

[rt-users] attachments behaviour on ticket forward

2011-03-28 Thread Raphaël MOUNEYRES
hi everyone,
(on RT version 3.8.8, sending via smtp command)

when forwarding a ticket with several attachments, i have the following 
behaviour :
a zz.xls file is attached correctly as a xls file 
a xxx.TXT file is displayed in the body
a yyy.log (containing plain-text) file is attached as a yyy.dat file

theses are 3 differents things depending on the file type/extension.
what i want is to always attach the files with original filename/extension

where are the config option to setup attachments behaviour ?
I haven't found any revelant option in RT_SiteConfig / RT_Config files ... 
may it be in the linux smtp configuration ?

Thank you,
Raphaël

[rt-users] Attachments to email

2010-10-12 Thread Joop

Hello All,

I'm faced with a problem that I haven't seen sofar. An application of 
ours sends an email from an Oracle database to our RT (3.8.2) install 
containing attachments. The filename in the Content-Disposition: 
attachment; field contains a name which is not compliant with the 
filesystem of the OS (Centos5).

See the below example:

---7D81B75CCC90D2974F7A1CBD
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=F413529322/Test Janine en 
Miranda.doc

Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64


RT accepts the email and creates a ticket including the attachment but 
you can't get it out of the database anymore because the '/' isn't 
escaped or translated into something not harmful, same holds true for 
the spaces in the filename.
I googled for rfc and Content-Disposition: attachment; filename= which 
came up with RFC-2183 which mentions that the recieving end is 
responsible for sanitizing the filename part.


Did I found a bug or I'm  misinformed about  how the 
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename= should work?


Regards,

Joop

PS:
Compleet message is available if needed for testing.

[rt-users] attachments sent via email suddenly have video/x-flv content type

2010-09-14 Thread Jon Tollerton
 Suddenly some messages coming in via rt-mailgate are ending up with a 
content type of video/x-flv even though the files that are involved are 
.csv or .tiff files.
I unfortunately don't have access to the original messages any more and 
email passes through several MTAs before fetchmail delivers to a 
procmail rule that calls rt-mailgate, so there's lots of points where 
this could be happening.  The strange thing is that so far it appears to 
be spontaneous and nothing has changed in our environment.  It's 
happened from two different sources as well, but not all mail is 
triggering this.  Changing the ContentType of the problem entries in the 
Attachments table corrected these messages, but I'm expecting for this 
to continue to happen when new information comes in.
It doesn't look to me like rt-mailgate does anything with  the content 
type that's passed in the original email other than pass it along to RT, 
but my perl fluency leaves a lot to be desired.  At this point I'm just 
trying to figure out where it makes sense to try to increase logging and 
determine if this sounds at all familiar to anyone?


Thanks,
-Jon

Hi.

Normally, the resolve is done as a comment, and the requestor only gets a 
notification that the ticket is resolved. If you want to do it in one step, you 
can click Reply, change status to resolved and add the information that you 
want to send to the requestor. Alternatively, you can click Resolve, and change 
the update type to Reply to requestors. You can probably change the default 
behavior some way, but I don't know how.

[rt-users] Attachments on disk?

Browsing the email archive, I found some discussions about storing the

Alternatively, before I reinvent the wheel, has someone written some

attachments later through the web interface are stored and retrieved
without any issues. Any other type: zip files, office documents, etc,
get stored in the Attachments table as text/plain whether
they are added via e-mail request or via the web interface.

Why is the content type not being identified or recorded correctly in
the database? Where should I look to debug this problem further? That
charset=utf-8 looks suspicious... I *think* I've done all the upgrades
properly... ran the upgrade schema script...

I'm on perl 5.10.0.x, Mysql 5.0.84, rt 3.8.2

Thanks for any help you folks can give!

-Eric


Here is a sample entry from the Header column in the Attachments table
with an office document.

MIME-Version: 1.0
Subject: Checklist_for_Booster_Application.doc

Here is one for a PDF file that I added to that same ticket mere moments
earlier.

2009-08-31 Thread Miroslav Horvath

Ken, I'm interresting for the code you've mentioned. Could you or somebody
else write me here that code or some similar, which will steal the
attachment from last comment and then I can use it in Resolve template, so
the Attachments which were put into ticket under Resolved phase will be
available in the email from Resolved Template ?

 The 'On Resolve' Scrip runs as a separate transaction, it runs during
 the resolve, not during the comment, so there are no attachments to
 send.  You either need to steal some of the code linked from previous
 posts to look for the previous transaction's attachments or disable
 this script and change RT to send Correspondence rather than Comments
 when a ticket is resolved, and then RT-Attach will work

[rt-users] Attachments missing in RESOLVE email

2009-07-30 Thread Miroslav Horvath

Hello 

We have started using RT 3.8.4. and we found a problem with sending
attachments within Resolved email. 

The template for RESOLVED starts with this: 

Subject: Resolved: {$Ticket-Subject} 
RT-Attach-Message: yes 

when some agent works on ticket, and click on Resolve, he puts some comments
and add attachment to that, and finish it, end user receive email but
without that attachment. 

We had same problem in RT 3.2.3 . 

btw.: Through the Reply sending attachment works fine, but throught
Resolve it doesnt. 

Do we need to set up something ? 

RT is running on: 
OS-Fedora CORE Linux $hostname 2.6.26.8-57.fc8 #1 SMP Thu Dec 18 18:59:49

Hi Miroslav,

That is expected behaviour. 

When one clicks on resolve, it takes them to comment, not reply (correspond), 
by default comments only go to admincc.

Thanks,

Miroslav  William,

I prefer to NOT change RT code if I can get away with it. We like our 
comments included on a resolved ticket, so we just created a scrip to 
send out an Email using our version of the resolved template. In our 
version, we capture the last comment and put it in the Email. That way 
we override RT's normal procedure of not sending out comments in Email 
AND we don't have to change the RT code. Just a thought.

Re: [rt-users] Attachments missing in RESOLVE email

2009-07-30 Thread Ken Crocker

Jo Rhett,

Sure. My mistake,  it's just a template. Here it is:

Subject: Request Titled: {$Ticket-Subject} has been Resolved!

This ticket has been resolved. DO NOT REPLY to this message!
-
TICKET INFORMATION:
Queue  : {$Ticket-QueueObj-Name}
Number : {$Ticket-Id}
Subject: {$Ticket-Subject}
Priority is: {$Ticket-Priority}
Requestor  : {$Ticket-Requestors-UserMembersObj-First-Name}
Created  by: {$Ticket-CreatorObj-Name}
Created  on: {substr($Ticket-Created, 0, 10)}
Ownedby: {$Ticket-OwnerObj-Name}
Development Started on: {substr($Ticket-Started, 0, 10)}
-
Description of Issue:
{$Ticket-FirstCustomFieldValue('Description')}

-
Resolution comment:
{
 my $Resolution_Comment;
 my $Transactions;
 my $CommentObj;

 $Transactions = $Ticket-Transactions;
 $Transactions-Limit( FIELD = 'Type', VALUE = 'Comment' );
 $Transactions-OrderByCols(
 { FIELD = 'Created',  ORDER = 'DESC' },
 { FIELD = 'id', ORDER = 'DESC' },
 );

 $CommentObj = $Transactions-First;

 if  ($CommentObj  $CommentObj-id)
 {
  $Resolution_Comment = $CommentObj-Content;
 }
 else
 {
  $Resolution_Comment = No comment.
 }

 return $Resolution_Comment;
}
-
To view ticket information, enter URL:

   {$RT::WebURL}Ticket/Display.html?id={$Ticket-id}

You'll probably notice that our method of getting people to stop 
replying to the Resolved notification was to tell them not to in 
capitol letters! ha! Really a high-tech method ;-). Anyway, it works for us.

[rt-users] Attachments: error 404 with single quotes in filename

2009-03-06 Thread Bernhard Hansbauer

Hello,
I have recently posted an error with some attachments that can't be 
shown and produce a 404 error.

I have found that this problem comes up when the filename of the 
attachment contains a single quote, which is not translated into a 
proper URL and thus creates an invalid link.
As workaround, I have told our users to simply cut off the file name 
after the Transaction ID in the browser, for example to replace

https://rt.example.com/Ticket/Attachment/5475720/2674832/carte%20d%26%2339%3Bidentit%C3%A9e.doc
(the link created by an attachment called carte d'identitée.doc)
by:
https://rt.example.com/Ticket/Attachment/5475720/2674832/

The attachment will then be shown.
How can this be fixed? Any idea?

Thank you  regards
Bernhard

[rt-users] Attachments table constantly fragmenting

2009-02-17 Thread Rob Munsch
Hello,

I've been using the mysqltuner script to check up on things, tune mem use to
our resources, etc.  One thing remains consistent:  no matter what i have
things set to, within a few hours of restart or full stop / start (at most),
the Attachments table becomes fragmented.  Here's the most recent report,
and i realize it's only a few hours since last restart:

 Recommendations
-
General recommendations:
   Run OPTIMIZE TABLE to defragment tables for better performance
   MySQL started within last 24 hours - recommendations may be inaccurate
   Temporary table size is already large - reduce result set size
   Reduce your SELECT DISTINCT queries without LIMIT clauses

CPU's a quad-core Xeon, there's 8GB of phys RAM, and the disks are 10k SAS
in hardware RAID-1.
Even when used after the 24hr minimum (or 3 days, or 8 days), three things
remain: a fragmented table which always turns out to be attachments; the Key
Buffer Hit Rate; and the temp tables on disk stat.  I don't fully understand
the latter two and haven't figured it out yet by online docs and commentary,
but i get the impression it's the nature of our DB structure and queries
used.

Important note about that - the MySQL server on this box is hosting two
DBs.  rt3 is one, but an internal DB we use for mumble mumble is also on the
box.  I'm not sure if that custom-written DB and its UI used across the
office by all employees is the reason for the key buffer / temp table
alerts; the programmer for that one is working on the two recommendations of
reducing result sets (may not be possible) and making sure there are LIMITs
on his queries wherever possible.

Should I be worried about the constantly-fragmenting Attachments table?  Can
i get more fine-grained info about it from within MySQL?

Thanks,
Rob

 [!!] Total fragmented tables: 1
 [--] Reads / Writes: 64% / 36%

Fragmentation is normal, especially with that read/write ratio.  It doesn't
necessarily indicate a problem.  You can periodically optimize the
fragmented tables to improve performance, if performance becomes an issue,
which should only be if RT does large ranges on primary keys or full table
scans (naughty!).  Otherwise, I'd ignore it.

[rt-users] Attachments not working on RT 3.8.1

2008-09-02 Thread Yvo van Doorn
Hey everyone,

I recently upgraded our RT installation from 3.8 to 3.8.1. In the
process it seems that attachments have stopped working. When you click
on an attachment in the Web UI it will show the URL to the attachment
(for example: 
http://rt.corp.cmates.com/Ticket/Attachment/957954/719224/IMG_0014.JPG).
The ticket does show the correct size of attachment, it just simply
won't show it.

Here is the show create table for my Attachments table:
| Attachments | CREATE TABLE `Attachments` (
  `id` int(11) NOT NULL auto_increment,
  `TransactionId` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `Parent` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `MessageId` varchar(160) default NULL,
  `Subject` varchar(255) default NULL,
  `Filename` varchar(255) default NULL,
  `ContentType` varchar(80) default NULL,
  `ContentEncoding` varchar(80) default NULL,
  `Content` longtext,
  `Headers` longtext,
  `Creator` int(11) NOT NULL default '0',
  `Created` datetime default NULL,
  PRIMARY KEY  (`id`),
  KEY `Attachments2` (`TransactionId`),
  KEY `Attachments3` (`Parent`,`TransactionId`)
) ENGINE=InnoDB AUTO_INCREMENT=719222 DEFAULT CHARSET=latin1 |

When I do a SELECT * FROM `Attachments` WHERE `id` =719224;
It shows the binary blob and what not so the attachment is stored in the db.

Any idea on what the issue could be?

[rt-users] Attachments not included in tickets?

2008-04-17 Thread Juan Mas
When new tickets are being created with an image attachment, the
attachments are not in the ticket.  I see the attachment referenced
under Attachments in the display but I cant actually see them.  Anyone
have any ideas?  I am using 3.6.6 on Gentoo.

[rt-users] Attachments aren't attaching

2008-01-30 Thread Jared Hanks
Hello,
 
I'm having some issues trying to attach a .doc attachment that is 4MB.  I have 
the following set in my RT Config:
 
RT::VERSION 3.6.1
RT::MaxAttachmentSize 1000
 
The above setting is 10MB, so I'm not quite sure why it would not be allowed to 
attach.  Is there another place I need to check for attachment size?
 
Any help is greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Jared

Thanks for the info.  It was actually in the MySql conf file (/etc/my.cnf).  I 
added the following line under the [mysqld] section:
 
max_allowed_packet=10M
 
I was then able to attach a message  1MB.

Holger,


	We are using 3.4.4 in production and the email with attachments works 
fine. So, I have a couple questions for you;

 1) is the email itself going out and only the attachment is not or
 2) is no email at all going out?

RT-Attach-Message: yes

to ensure that Attachments get sent.

Cheers,

[rt-users] Attachments - size limitations?

2007-08-20 Thread Paul Goffin
Hi,

I'm having problems with my Fedora 7, RT 3.6.3 system and large 
attachments.

I've increased the max_allowed_packet value for mysql and I can now 
receive very
large emails (6MB) without attachments or normal emails with attachments 
of
a few 10s of K but larger attachments don't make it - I get EX_TEMPFAIL
from rt-mailgate.

Running rt-mailgate manually doesn't get me any extra information.

Any ideas?

Paul Goffin

Re[2]: [rt-users] Attachments table of RT's Mysql database

2007-08-08 Thread Boris Lytochkin
Wiki would be enough, but there is a problem in current patch state:
it uses special constant string inplace of real content to indicate
that file is located out of DB.
Right way is to use flag in table. I do not think that changing scheme
 witch patching is a good idea, that is why this patch must be merged into RT.

Now about different strokes for different folks.
This way of storing attachments is reasonable when you get 50Mb+ of mail
each week (scans, faxes, documents, etc).

I guess it all comes down to different strokes for different folks. 
Perhaps this could be put up on the wiki and then if someone needs this
capability they can easily get it?

DB

 Wrong. We _stopped_ backup process of RT database due to LARGE amount
 data every day. We have no such amount of tape to store DB's everyday
 backups.
 Now, DB backup is done every day and attachment backup is done
 separately. As a result we have everyday SQL-backup of DB and
 incremental backup for attachments. It uses much less space.

   
 Second, in many cases you would like to
 isolate the front-end from the back-end information store. Once
 you need access to the filesystem, everything becomes much more
 involved.
 

 I understand that storing attachments out of RT involves much more
 than DB-only solution, BUT 10 Gb DB with 9.5 Gb of images involves much more.

 Anyway, it is up to admin to decide whether to store attachments
 separate or not.

RE: Re[4]: [rt-users] Attachments table of RT's Mysql database

2007-08-08 Thread Schincke, Keith D. (JSC-IT)[MEI]
You could do that or just have 'ondisk' be a new encoding type added at
the end of the list. 
The Content field of the data base could store the path to the file
relative to a config option.

I would suggest a file size threshold option if RT starts using the file
system to store attachements. 

The folowing config options could be added:
Set( $AttachmentLocation, 'indb'|'ondisk'|'size' ) ;
Set( $AttachmentDiskStorageThreshhold, 4096 ) ;
Set( $AttachmentDiskPath, '/some/location' ) ;

I think I was envisioning ondisk as a new encoding meaning the  
content is the path to the attachment's content on disk (presumably  
named as a sha1 sum of its content) and not a prefox to the existing  
encodings. There's not much sense in storing stuff on disk in  
something other than raw binary format.

It's better to use my variant of attachment naming:
1) Attachment.Content = NULL, this saves disk space.
2) TransactionId.AttachmentId naming is familiar with download links in Web
interface.

So, your idea is to move selection of storage to
RT::Record::_EncodeLOB, where encoding format is selected.
But this function is used by ObjectCustomFieldValue_Overlay.pm, that
will be confused when it get 'ondisk'.

So, ContentEncoding seems to be not very good field to store 'ondisk'
flag since 'ondisk' means storage scheme, not encoding. Mixing it will
produce awkward result.

 Subject: [rt-users] Attachments table of RT's Mysql database

 Hello everybody.

We've been using RT for more than three months as part of our 
 customer concern processes.  Overall, things have been going well.
 The configuration includes Mysql, Apache2 and Postfix running on Ubuntu 
 6.06.  I've made no modifications to the databases.
 The primary concern at this point is that the Attachments table of the 
 Mysql database is growing significantly.  Our CSR's want to attach
 PDFs, jpegs, etc. to the tickets with the jpegs usually created by our 
 customers.  The digital photos are the main culprit. I've read about
 scaling back the photos, creating thumbnails, etc. and we need to find a 
 way to limit the attachment size prior to attachment.

   Has anyone else using RT had this type of problem?

   What are the best approaches for minimizing and controlling the size 
 of the Attachments table?

 Any information, feedback and guidance are appreciated.

 thanks - Gregory Harper , Stevens Industries

Dear Mr. Lytochkin,

There are two very good reasons to not store attachments outside
of the database. First, if everything is inside a database, then a
simple backup of the database will get everything related to a
particular RT instance. Second, in many cases you would like to
isolate the front-end from the back-end information store. Once
you need access to the filesystem, everything becomes much more
involved. I am certain that there are other reasons, but those
two are certainly enough for me. I have appreciated the ease of
generating a consistent backup of my RT information store.

Re[2]: [rt-users] Attachments table of RT's Mysql database

2007-08-07 Thread Boris Lytochkin
Ken,

 First, if everything is inside a database, then a
 simple backup of the database will get everything related to a
 particular RT instance.
Wrong. We _stopped_ backup process of RT database due to LARGE amount
data every day. We have no such amount of tape to store DB's everyday
backups.
Now, DB backup is done every day and attachment backup is done
separately. As a result we have everyday SQL-backup of DB and
incremental backup for attachments. It uses much less space.

 Second, in many cases you would like to
 isolate the front-end from the back-end information store. Once
 you need access to the filesystem, everything becomes much more
 involved.

I understand that storing attachments out of RT involves much more
than DB-only solution, BUT 10 Gb DB with 9.5 Gb of images involves much more.

Anyway, it is up to admin to decide whether to store attachments
separate or not.

I personally agree with Boris on this. This should be a configuration option to 
either store attachments in the database or on the web front end.

In most enterprise applications you don't store files or session state in the 
database unless you have a really good reason too. The overhead added by 
sessions and files results in increased reads from the web server to verify 
session or large database sizes to store the files in blobs.

Re[4]: [rt-users] Attachments table of RT's Mysql database

2007-08-07 Thread Viktor
 I personally agree with Boris on this. This should be a configuration option 
 to either store attachments in the database or on the web front end.
So do I.
Moreover, it might be very convenient to store only _unique_ attachments and to 
have a counter of 'uniqueness' for each one. After all, RT is a tracker. Some 
users may tend to send the same files repeatedly (for instance, request 
handlers might send the same patch to a limited number of RT users).
A configuration option to store attachments in server's local FS instead of any 
DBMS would be nice for some configurations.

We currently have RT configuration with ~50Gb pgsql database!
 
 In most enterprise applications you don't store files or session state in the 
 database unless you have a really good reason too. The overhead added by 
 sessions and files results in increased reads from the web server to verify 
 session or large database sizes to store the files in blobs.  

Good point, but for DB transactions facility...

Hi All,

I'm currently developing a form which performs some basic ticket
manipulations
eg,  set priority, due date etc...
Now the requirement to add attachments has arisen on this form.

I've searched the archives for relevant information on this but I cannot
find any.
So hence this post.

Has anybody developed such a form with this functionality before?
If so, would they be kind enought to point me in the right direction.

Thank you in advance,

Yeah, I have a number of webforms that use attachments. They all send
e-mail (with file attached) to the rt e-mail gateway, and it
disassembles the attachments and adds them properly to the ticket.

Re: [rt-users] Attachments

2007-03-28 Thread Matthew Keller
Here's a code snippet of a function I wrote to abstract sending e-mail
with attachments. If you read the perldoc for Mail::Sender, it talks
about attaching multiple files, etc.

sub Send_Email{
use Mail::Sender;
my ($to, $from, $subject, $message, $attach) = @_;
my $sender = new Mail::Sender{
smtp = '127.0.0.1',
from = $from
};
unless($sender) { die Send_email said $sender: $Mail::Sender::Error
\n; }

my $mf=$sender- MailFile({
to = $to,
subject = $subject,
msg = $message,
file = $attach
   }); 
   
unless($mf) { die Send_email mailfile said $mf: $Mail::Sender::Error
\n; }

}

[rt-users] Attachments and unhappiness

2007-03-08 Thread Brian Gallew
So, I've figured out the attachment issue: not only much the attachments 
table default to the latin1 charset, but your CONNECTION must also be in 
latin1 mode.  In my environment, the mysql (5.0.24a) server (on another 
host) defaults everything to utf8, while the RT installation is using 
mysql-4.0.25, which completely fails to set the connection type based on 
the contents of /etc/my.cnf.  I was able to fix the problem by applying 
the patch at the end.

Re: [rt-users] Attachments truncated

2006-11-24 Thread Jan Korbel

Hello.

I have same problem with 3.6.1 on Debian Sarge (installed from sources). 
I can upload attachment with ticket creation (via web) but i see only 
filename, not content or download link.


Also i can't find content in Attachment mysql table. Config is ok 
(default settings) and mysql too.


Any tips?

[rt-users] Attachments subject from message header twice encode to utf8

2006-10-11 Thread Alexey G Misyurenko

Hello!

Can't any body also have next one problems

Message Header Subject which is stored on database
in utf8 encoding is one more time encoded to utf8 before
it is shown ? (the same result in 3.4.4 and 3.6.1 )

Currently I find next workaround (against 3.6.1).
This is only workaround the 'bug' is taken more early.
Also by this bug is affected corresponded replies from
RT to e-mail users.

p.s. I don't know is Encode::_utf8_on using is needed

All,

 Hello, Chris.
 Could you backup your DB, and run next to SQL queries?
 ALTER TABLE Attachments CHANGE Content Content LONGBLOB NULL;
 
 Then check if you could binary attachments without problems and report

 back.
 This query is safe but anyway I would suggest you to backup data.

Running this fixed my attachment corruption problem, thanks!

I think the Gentoo Installation Guide mentions changing some aspects of
the RT database in the comments section near the end of the document.
This may be why both Jeremy and I had this problem (we're both running
on GenToo).  I followed the threads listed in that Guide to finally get
it working, but I honestly don't remember everything that was tweaked
along the way.

Perhaps someone more knowledgeable could change the GentooInstallGuide
to reflect the above fix for future users?

Thanks again,

Donovan

Changing the Content type in the Attachments table
from LONGTEXT to LONGBLOB via

ALTER TABLE Attachments CHANGE Content Content
LONGBLOB NULL;

worked for me also. I observe the following in
/opt/rt3/etc/schema.mysql:

CREATE TABLE Attachments (
.
.
  Content LONGTEXT NULL  ,
.
.
) TYPE=InnoDB;

Is this an error in the RT3 MySQL schema?

Running Gentoo and RT 3.6.1

The only other thing I can think of then is to make sure that the
Attachments table in your database is properly defined, because it could
be that the attachment can't make it into your database.  I would check
the mysql logs and the rt logs to make sure you aren't getting any
errors relating to this.
