Changing RT's behaviour on ticket close

Hi all,

while I was looking for a way to default to reply on resolve, not
comment on resolve (which I still did not find out how to as google has
way too many false positives), billybongo from #rt came up with a neat
idea. It should be possible not to send the "your ticket is closed"
blurb when you send out a reply.

That should be easy to do via Scrips, but I could not make it work.

Any help?
Richard

Hello,

Is there any particular reason why you want a reply rather than a comment?
I have kept the resolve message as a comment, but then added this template
(which I think is directly off the wiki):

According to our records, your request has been resolved. If you have any
further questions or concerns, please respond to this message.

Comments about the resolution of this issue:

{
my $resolution_comment;
my $Transactions = $Ticket->Transactions;

$Transactions->Limit( FIELD => ‘Type’, VALUE => ‘Comment’ );
$Transactions->OrderByCols (
{ FIELD => ‘Created’, ORDER => ‘DESC’ },
{ FIELD => ‘id’, ORDER => ‘DESC’ },
);

my $CommentObj = $Transactions->First;
if( $CommentObj && $CommentObj->id ) {
$resolution_comment = $CommentObj->Content;
}

$resolution_comment;
}

Then, in the scrips, I think the original on resolve scrip was 10, so I
deleted it and created a 10b. It is: On Resolve, Notify Requestors, Global
template: ResolveWithExplanation, Transaction Create. It accomplishes what
we wanted. Now, since that resolve message is a comment, it can’t be seen
by users if they go into the web interface. Ours don’t, but if yours do, I
can see why the resolve message must be a reply.

If anyone has a better way of doing this, I’d sure like to see it.On Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 5:18 AM, Richard Hartmann < richih.mailinglist@gmail.com> wrote:
