Announcing: RTx::RightsMatrix 0.02

RTx::RightsMatrix is an extension for Request Tracker (RT) that
makes managing and understanding RT rights easier. Once installed
an RT administrator can access the interface under Configuration ->
Tools -> Rights Matrix. If you have lots of queues, groups, or
custom fields, RTx::RightsMatrix should make managing RT’s rights
much easier.

Users can also see and manage rights under Preferences -> My Rights.
(Note: The user menu requires RT > 3.4.4 or a callback must be
added to UserTabs)

RTx::RightsMatrix also includes support for mananging Asset Tracker
(AT) rights. AT is an asset tracking extension for RT.

New in 0.02: Managment of rights on Groups

(It may take an hour to reach CPAN)
http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/H/HT/HTCHAPMAN/RTx-RightsMatrix-0.02.tgz

SEE IT IN ACTION!

You can also see it in action at the public Asset Tracker demo. (Although the public demo doesn’t really show it off well because of the limited number of queues and groups, but it does get the idea across.)

Your server set page encoding in headers to latin-1, plese force
guest’s language to EN.

And when I click on some ‘Y’ in matrix, I get error, for example next link:

“tests will only run if your database is rt3regression”

Does that mean if your database name is rt3regression? I don’t get it.

Thank you.

Yes, that’s what it means. Most of the tests are to make sure
the code that does the rights sluething is ok. That’s hard
to do when you may have already granted rights to various
roles or systems groups.

Thanks. Temporarily fixed and will be permanently fixed in the next
release. One of the components needs to be renamed.

Make test fails because the tests only will run against
the rt3regression database. You don’t want my tests messing
with your production data, do you?

The other problem indicated that RTHOME may not be set correctly.

Also, please always include the list. I don’t give private support.

In the immortal words of Todd Chapman (todd@chaka.net):

Make test fails because the tests only will run against
the rt3regression database. You don’t want my tests messing
with your production data, do you?

Fair enough, but that is profoundly non-obvious to anyone attempting
to install via CPAN.

Also, please always include the list. I don’t give private support.

A novel spelling of “thank you for not spamming the list with a
long local problem report on the new package I just announced and
asked for feedback on”, but to each their own I suppose, and your
preference is duly noted.
