Correspondence scrip help

Hello all,

I am wondering if there is any way to resolve RT action when TECH-1 resolves a ticket with correspondence it will not send out 2 emails to the requestor. The 1st email says the ticket is resolved and the other is basically the same message but using the correspondence template instead of the resolved template.

I tried to use the code below to resolve my issue but its not working because RT sends out the email before my custom action can check if the new ticket value is resolved or not. I believe my scrip would work if status changed to resolve was done before correspondence. Is there any way to fix this?

Maybe changing from Stage: TransactionCreate to TransactionBatch would resolve my problem?

Tue Aug 17 15:57:11 2004 TECH-1 - Correspondence added
Tue Aug 17 15:57:13 2004 TECH-1 - Status changed from open to resolved

On Correspond
User Defined Notify Requestors and Ccs with template Correspondence

Custom Action:
my $tr = $self->TransactionObj;
if ($tr->Type eq (‘Correspond’ || ‘Comment’) && $tr->NewValue ne ‘resolved’) {
return(1);
} else {
return undef;
}

Ok, still working on the same issue as yesterday. I think I just need a few lines of code to get this

if ($tr->Type eq ‘Correspond’ && $tr->NewValue ne ‘resolved’)

test condition to work. Currently its not working because Correspond and NewValue condition are not on the same line according to Transactions table on RT3 DB(See Below).

2689 0 305 0 Correspond NULL NULL NULL No Subject 33
2004-08-17 22:57:11

2690 0 305 0 Status Status open resolved NULL 33
2004-08-17 22:57:13

So how would I write a condition to check the NEXT line too?-----Original Message-----

Disable the script “On Resolve…” and modify the interface so that the
"resolve" link defaults to Correspond rather than Comment?

Steve,

Thanks for your attempted help. It still does not solve the problem because on some cases its best to use “comment” resolve instead of correspond resolve when dealing with a client.

If someone can give me FAT clue as to how to go about it would be great. I would not ask the question on this list if I had any idea of how to proceed with problem.

The trouble is that you’re dealing with two distinct transactions.
Sounds like your “on resolve” script will need to look at the previous
transaction, and then bail out if that transaction was a “correspond”,
but not if it was a “comment”. (Nope, don’t have the code to do that,
but the http://wiki.bestpractical.com/index.cgi?AddLastCommentToMail
shows how to iterate through transactions…)

I’ve believe I’ve checked that one and thought it was only for “template” use. But looking at that code again, it still does not tell me how to GoToPrevious line. Instead, that one says go to last one. If there is a “previous” function, I would try to write that code in and see how it goes.
