Changing %rtname%


#1

Hi all. My first post so be nice to the newbie :slight_smile:

I installed rt on my solaris 2.6 system a month or so ago. It works great, but I was wondering if there is a way to change the name that rt uses on correspondence in the subject line:

[mm.mtu.edu] #1352

I was wondering if there is a way to change the mm.mtu.edu (which ended up being the default somehow) to be something else without wiping out the database.

Thanks
Dave

Yes, edit rt/etc/config.pm

Be warned, however, that changing this value will cause RT to stop recognising
the Taglines in the subjects of old messages.On Tue, May 09, 2000 at 11:14:56AM -0400, Dave (Grizz) Glaser wrote:

the database.

I think so, but I haven’t tested.

In lib/rt/ui/mail/manipulate.pm, there should be some lines like this:

elsif (($line =~ /^Subject:(.*)\[$rt::rtname\s*\#(\d+)\]\s*(.*)/i) and (!$subject)){

…try changing $rt::rtname to (?:mm.mtu.edu|$rt::rtname)

Per your previous similar advice, I did the equivilant of the above and
we’ve been operating fine for a few months.
