Custom Action not performed if root

All,

I’m having trouble with the below…

get actor ID

my $Actor = $self->TransactionObj->Creator;

if actor is RT_SystemUser or root then get out of here

return 1 if $Actor == $RT::SystemUser->id;
return 1 if $Actor == root;

return 1;

I’ve tried == root and == 12 (the User’s ID). Am I doing something
wrong?

Thanks,
Daniel Jimenez

Daniel,

If you don’t want the action performed you should return 0,
not 1.

Not in my situation because currently it returns 1 if it’s the system
user and doesn’t perform the action.-----Original Message-----

I’m confused. Your code below returns 1 no matter
what happens. It doesn’t make any sense!

If that’s the case, what am I doing wrong? I’d like for the custom
action to not be performed if userid = XX or if it’s RT_System.From: Todd Chapman [mailto:todd@chaka.net]

my $ActorObj = $self->TransactionObj->CreatorObj;

if actor is RT_SystemUser or root then return false

return 0 if $ActorObj->id == $RT::SystemUser->id;
return 0 if $ActorObj->Name eq ‘root’;
