Automatic resolve on e-mail reply

Hi,
I’m currently setting up RT and wondered if the following was possible…
somebody sends an e-mail to a support queue, this is passed on to
AdminCC’s,
when an AdminCC replies I want the ticket to be automatically resolved and
removed from the queue.
The queue then only shows unresolved tickets and no manual queue
management is involved.

If a scrip is needed to implement this, does anybody have this done
already?

Thanks for your time,

This should be fairly trivial… off the top of my head
(and all untested, take note!)

OnCorrespOut ResolveTicket with template Blank

package RT::Condition::OnCorrespOut;
require RT::Condition::Generic;
@ISA = qw(RT::Condition::Generic);

sub IsApplicable {
my $self = shift;
return($self->TransactionObj->Type eq ‘Correspond’ && !$self->IsInbound);
}
1;
package RT::Action::ResolveTicket;
require RT::Action::Generic;
@ISA = qw(RT::Action::Generic);

sub Commit {
my $self = shift;
return ($self->TicketObj->Resolve());
}
1;

OnCorrespOut ResolveTicket with template Blank

Result is still indeterminate if used from the WebUI, as the WebUI also
sets several status variables.

Indeed. While I’m not interested enough to come up with a patch
to fix this, I did post one to rt-users to work around a similar
problem with AutoTake on June 1 2002; that would probably make a
pretty good basis for a new patch to address this issue. Search
The Friendly Archives. :slight_smile:

Thanks for the help,
I’ve been slowly working on this and sure enough the WebUI does something
beyond simply calling TicketObj->Resolve. The scrip action succeeds in
marking the ticket as resolved but it’s then opened again immediately.
Looking at the the ticket history I see:

RT_System - Status changed from open to resolved
RT_System - Status changed from resolved to open

Actually setting the “status” field in the relevant mysql entry to
"resolved" is enough to resolve the ticket and stop it from showing in
the queue.
I’m assuming there’s something else within RT that needs to be done during
that transaction in order to complete it successfully.
Does anybody have any idea what that is?
I’ve been trying to work through the perl but it’s currently got me
beaten.

Thanks in advance for any help,

Replace this line in webrt/Ticket/Update.html

DefaultStatus = $Ticket->Status() unless ($DefaultStatus);

with something like

unless ($DefaultStatus) {
$DefaultStatus = $Ticket->Status();
if ($DefaultStatus eq “open” && $Action eq “Respond”) {
$DefaultStatus= “resolved”;
}
}

which will make the “Status” dropdown on the correspondence page
default to “resolved” if the ticket is open.

Hack, hack, hack…
