Creating and resolving a ticket in one entry

Hi all,

I’m very new to RT and I’m still in the process of gathering information on what RT can do - one of the options that we, as a university help desk, would like to be able to do is have the ability to enter student information related to password resets (several custom fields) and rather than creating a ticket that we would immediately set to resolved - we’d like to create and resolve it at the same time.
I searched the contributions but didn’t think I could see what I was looking for.
There is ResolveTicket but for us this action would not apply to the entire queue.
Thanks for any advice,

I’m very new to RT and I’m still in the process of gathering
information
on what RT can do - one of the options that we, as a university help
desk,
would like to be able to do is have the ability to enter student
information related to password resets (several custom fields) and
rather
than creating a ticket that we would immediately set to resolved -
we’d
like to create and resolve it at the same time.

Create the ticket. In the information editing section, set the status to
resolve, put in any other information. Save.

Not what you want?

You need a user-defined condition:

if ( ( $self->TransactionObj->Type eq ‘Create’ )
&& ( $self->TicketObj->Status eq ‘resolved’ ) )
{ return (1); }
else
{ return (undef); }

Then tie a special template to this action. For example, we’ve got two
templates. One of them is the usual “thank you for contacting us, your
ticket number is #blah, we will contact you ASAP for an appointment”, etc.
We send this template on the creation of any new or open tickets.

The other template is “Thank you for contacting us. Since we resolved your
request during our conversation, please contact us if you have any further
problems.” We send this template on the creation of a resolved ticket.

I’ve got tons of custom code for dealing with university situations. Contact
me if you want to know more.
