Create transaction record

Hello List

I have created a custom scrip the will respond to an email via a web service call. I would like to create a transaction with the return message.

Can someone give me a little code snippet or some direction on how to create the transaction? With our creating or updating a custom field.

I have read about the _RecoredTransaction but I think this may be the wrong route and I have not found any example code to help me out.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Thanks

Hello List

I have created a custom scrip the will respond to an email via a web service
call. I would like to create a transaction with the return message.

What do you want the txn to do? Set a custom field, change an owner, etc?

Can someone give me a little code snippet or some direction on how to create
the transaction? With our creating or updating a custom field.

Generally you would probably want to have two scrips:

  1. On Condition C, reply to (or notify) requestor using template T

  2. On Condition C, perform your specific txn using a blank template.

But it is hard to give advice without a little more clarity in your question.

Thanks,

Thanks for the reply.

All I want to do is add an entry in the ticket history that contains the return information from the call to the web service. I have the information logged to the log file, but I also want an entry record in the history of the ticket. So no action something very simple.

I know when a custom fields are changed or updated this information shows up in the history of the ticket. With the web service call a message is received but a custom field is not needed for the information, just would like an entry in the history of the ticket of the message from web service call.

I hear what you are saying. I don’t know off the top of my head how to
accomplish it.

So you have:

Email -> RT -> Scrip gets triggered -> Web service call is made

Yes that is what I am doing I hoping for some kind of call like “$RT::Logger->debug” for logging. But I have not found anything. The web service call is actually being executed from inside custom home built actions.

Thanks Matt come up with any ideas it would be greatly appreciated.

That would work. Or:

RT->Logger->debug(‘a line of debug’);

Regarding creating a txn for the ticket history: I may have at one
time created a txn and added it to the history, but I’m not seeing any
code examples in my extensions. I don’t quite remember how and don’t
have time to dig into the RT upstream code.

You could create a custom field called Web Services and set that CF to
whatever value your web services returns. That is pretty easy.

Yes I thought of the custom field and that would be easy, but I have so many now. I just didn’t want to add another. But if I can’t find anything else that is what I will do eventually.

I’m sure there is a way to add a txn - apparently I’ve never done it
and would have to research (which I have no time for.)

Don’t sweat it I will continue to research I was hoping that someone had some pointers

Have you read
https://docs.bestpractical.com/rt/4.4.1/RT/Transaction.html#Create ?

Probably more useful:
https://docs.bestpractical.com/rt/4.4.1/RT/Ticket.html#Comment

The simplest way to call it, given a RT::Ticket object named ticket:

$ticket->Comment( Content => “I’m A Little Teapot” );

And now you have a new comment transaction.

Thanks Bill

I should have thought of that, I will pursue one of those options.
