Changing logo, and viewing *all* tickets?

Hello all,
A couple questions from my boss that I don’t know how to answer: can I change the logo and link that appears at the top of all RT pages? He wants it to be our logo and the link to go to our homepage.

The other question is about viewing tickets. As the head of the company, he wants, quite understandably, to have a way of viewing all open tickets regardless of queue. I’ve given the admins group all the permissions I could find, and added him to that, so he should have whatever rights are needed to do this. Yet, neither of us can find a way to bring up such a view. Tickets in which he is involved, sure, but not every active ticket in RT. Is there an easy way, or will have I have to make a special group that is admin CC on all tickets? I’d rather not, since that would give him a ton of unwanted emails.

Thanks for any information on either one. Of the two, viewing all tickets is much more important.

Yep.

See $LogoURL and $LogoLinkURL

This can be just a saved search. It is quite easy:

Status = ‘Active

Using the meta status Active will be a bit more robust than just
"open". Though if that is what you really want, then go ahead with
’open’.

He can load the saved search in his home page, or any dashboard, for
that matter.

Hi Alex,

  1.   Take a look at http://your-rt.org/Admin/Tools/Theme.html
    
  2.   I think you have to build him a dashboard with a custom search which shows all open tickets for all queues. Take a look at /Search/Build.html?NewQuery=1 and /Dashboards/Modify.html?Create=1
    

Cheers,

Thanks guys. We’ve updated the logo, and I passed along the information
about saving searches. You said active tickets are Active, but open are
simply ‘open’? What do the underscores indicate, or should it be open?
Do caps matter?

Finally, how do we completely delete tickets if necessary? I have seen a
few suggestions, but most from the 3.x versions of RT. What’s the
recommended way, and is the shredder necessary for this?On Thu, Sep 15, 2016 at 9:55 AM, Sinapius, Vinzenz < Vinzenz.Sinapius@tracetronic.de> wrote:

Active is a meta status that includes all active statuses of a
lifecycle - it would include statuses: open, new, and any other active
statuses for the default lifecycle.

‘open’ would work for open, ‘new’ would work for new, ‘Active’ covers
all bases, for all lifecycles. It is probably what you want - even if you
don’t know you want it. :slight_smile:

Okay, that makes sense. I’m assuming other “meta” statuses exist as well.
Knowing this, and that you can search for these and save those searches,
will indeed make ticket viewing much easier for our admins.On Thu, Sep 15, 2016 at 10:57 AM, Matt Zagrabelny mzagrabe@d.umn.edu wrote:

There is only one other meta status: Inactive

When configuring lifecycles - which are digraphs of statuses, the statuses
are partitioned into either active or inactive.

https://docs.bestpractical.com/rt/4.4.1/customizing/lifecycles.html

I suppose there could be one additional meta status: Initial

BP, if you are reading, what do you think?

I don’t have a use-case for it, though, but perhaps there exists a need.
Anyhow, this is a theoretical point and mostly a rabbit trail.

Cheers!

Hey Matt, Alex, et al,

I suppose there could be one additional meta status: Initial

BP, if you are reading, what do you think?

If we were to add Initial, then Active would have to change to not include the initial statuses, otherwise it’d be very confusing that the names don’t line up.

I don’t have a use-case for it, though, but perhaps there exists a need. Anyhow, this is a theoretical point and mostly a rabbit trail.

Indeed. Probably not worth it.

Cheers!

BP, if you are reading, what do you think?

If we were to add Initial, then Active would have to change to not include the initial statuses, otherwise it’d be very confusing that the names don’t line up.

I think Initial could just be single status subset of Active.
No need to exclude it from Active. I love having opinions of
theoretical rabbit trails!

I don’t have a use-case for it, though, but perhaps there exists a need. Anyhow, this is a theoretical point and mostly a rabbit trail.
