Attachments won't send

I can’t seem to send an attachment with RT. The attachments on a ticket
come across OK but I can’t send one back.
Example
I respond to a ticket and attach a file in the response to be sent to the
requestor.
The response sends fine but no attachment and no error.

Subject: [rt-users] Newbie trouble: keywords don’t work

I am trying to make a test rt install for my company’s internal helpdesk
usage and have one problem left of which I can find no other mention:
the keywords feature does not seem to work.

I add keywords as I understand how to do them; for example:

OS/
OS/Linux
OS/Windows
OS/Mac OS X

Then I attach keyword selections to a queue or globally; for example:

Platform - multiple - children of OS/ up to 1 levels deep

The result? Empty select boxes on the keywords page. I can get the
select boxes to kind of work by changing the children of to “-” after
initial creation, but this obviously won’t do the job and it breaks as
soon as I change it back to the correct parent.

I am at a complete loss and any help would be greatly appreciated. The
[hopefully] relevant details for my install are:

RedHat 7.2 server with 2.4.18 kernel
Request Tracker 2.0.13
Perl 5.6.1 built from source
PostgreSQL 7.2.1 database installed from official RPMs

Joe.

Try “up to 0 levels deep” (where 0 means "as many children as possible).

Are you typing in the ‘/’ after ‘OS’ manually? If so, instead you should
type “OS” as a keyword, hit the “Add” button, then click on the word
"OS" (which is a link now), then add “Linux”, etc.

That was the problem – it works perfectly now. It’s amazing how
difficult a problem can seem to be, then how obvious it becomes once you
learn one simple detail.

Thanks a bunch!

Hi All!

I’m trying to modify the Stock Answers contrib to make a “Stock Requests”; a
way for users creating tickets to enter pre-formatted text. I’m not having
much luck so far… I can’t seem to get it working. I’m just wondering if
anyone else has done this yet? Am I breaking new ground that makes the
hairpulling worth while? :wink:

Hi Aaron!

I’ve put

<& Elements/ShowStock/Requests &>
<& /Elements/MessageBox, Name=> “Content” &>

into an otherwise unmodified Create.html copied to
/usr/local/rt2/local/WebRT/html/SelfService/

I’ve modified StockAnswers0.2 to create StockRequests in
/usr/local/rt2/local/WebRT/html/SelfService/Elements/

I’ll include the modified StockAnswers below. My problem is that I don’t
get anything into the drop down list. I’m not a programmer, so I’d
appreciate any advise you can give me!

Thanks!

Well, I’m the new maintainer of the StockAnswers project. I am working o=
n a=20
release of more or less a complete rewrite. I know how StockAnswers work=
s,=20
(and used to work). Basically you need to follow the same basic instruct=
ions=20
as for the Stock Answers except using Ticket/Create.html. You’ll also ne=
ed=20
to add a Name=3D"TicketCreate" to the form element of Create.html,
And in the javascript code the lines with:=20
"window.opener.document.TicketUpdate
you need to change the TicketUpdate to TicketCreate
and the UpdateContent to Content.
This should get you in the right direction.
Also make sure that your responses don’t have CR in them. The current cod=
e=20
does not handle this well. The new code will handle both CRLF and LF lin=
e=20
endings ok. Also the new code supports variable substitution.
I will be posting a new release of the code in the next day or so.

Let me know if you need further assistance,

Subject: [rt-users] Change initial status to “Open”

Is there a way within RT2 to change the default initial status from “New” to
"Open"? We only have a few users and it is one more step for us to have to
change the ticket to “Open” that we’d rather not have to do. I’ve looked
through several modules but am not sure where I should be looking.
Alternatively, if I create a default value in the database itself will this
be reflected in RT?

Thanks,
