Any way to steal a ticket?

I’m trying to take a ticket from another user and RT says me:

You can only reassign tickets that you own or that are unowned

Any way to bypass this check? I really want this ability (combined
with OnOwnerChange so that the old owner is warned and can complain).

Even when logged as root, I get the above message.

Hello Stephane.

Would “Steal” or “Take” not work for you?

Best Regards

I don’t know how I missed that button. Thanks a lot, it works, sorry
for the too hasty question.

That works for me if trying to re-assign somebody else’s ticket to
myself. But if I want to change the owner from somebody else to a
different somebody else then I find that I have to do this in two steps
– first changing the owner to me, then changing it to the person I want
to have it.

Do other people get this? Is it a feature or just something that
happens to be that way?

Search/Bulk.html has a feature to do this in one step, by allowing you to
force the change. I bet you could update Ticket/ModifyPeople.html to do
the same thing.

If you want to make it optional, you could add

<input type=checkbox name="ForceOwnerChange"> Force change

into the form in ModifyPeople.html.

If you want it to happen everytime, you could try doing:

<input type="hidden" name="ForceOwnerChange" value="1">

Note that RT will tag the transaction as forced (or something like that; I
haven’t done it in awhile)

Please note that I’m using 2.0.8_02 so this may be different in earlier or
later versions.

Cunning! I’ll look into it. I’m thinking I could even have the above
depend on privileges, so that certain users (maybe queue adminCCs) can
force changes and others can’t.
