Ability to hide comments in the ticket

Is there a way for me to add comments to a ticket that other priviliged
users can see but that the requestor can not see? I find it common to
want to document information on a per ticket basis that we may not want
to communicate to the person that has opened the ticket.

Thanks in advance.

You’re describing the default behavior for comments. “Reply” sends the
message to the requester. “Comment” stays private.

Not if they’re an unprivileged user, using the SelfService interface.
If they are a privileged user, then yes, they can see them…

You need to make sure you haven’t granted “Everyone” or “Unprivileged
Users” the right to ShowTicketComments.

Ok. I had the permissions setup wrong that allowed them to do this.
Thanks for getting me straightened out!!

Hi,

I’ve just finished a fresh install of RT 3.0.8 with MySQL 4.0.17/Apache 1.3.29.

I’ve already a production platform with RT 3.0.7/MySQL 4.0.17/Apache 1.3.29.

On both installations, I can’t create anymore templates for a specific queue.

I obtain the following error message :

“Trying to check RT::Queue rights for an unspecified RT::Queue at
/usr/local/rt3/lib/RT/Principal_Overlay.pm”

Please can someone make the very simple following test :

Configuration -> Queues -> “select a queue” -> Templates -> New template

Does it work ?

Then try :

Configuration -> Global -> Templates -> New template

It should work.

Regards.

Jean-Pierre FORCIOLI.
