Custom fields for Queues

Would this be easy to hack in? I haven’t touched the schema at all, so
I don’t know what’s involved…

It’s certainly possible with the architecture. What are you looking
to use it for?

If you have a big system for several company’s and so on, then you can use
this option for billing information and so on!

Billing!

If you have a big system for several company’s and so on, then you can use
this option for billing information and so on!

Can you be more specific? What data do you want to track?

OK, let me explain a scenario:

You have one RT, with many thousand Queues. We have internally at KN many
different subsidiaries with internal cross billing.

Lets pick up the Queue Information you have at this moment:

Queue Name:
Queue Description:

And some Fields for other information, thats OK, but it would be much more
better if you can add, like you can do at the users cf’s, some cf’s to a
queue with information about this queue.

Example:

Queue Name: KN.APPLICATION-SUPPORT
Queue Description: Suport for Application xyz
Queue Owner: Torsten Brumm
Queue Requestor: Jesse Vincent
Billing to: Bestpractical
Budget Code: HAMBURG4711

And so on. And at the best, this could be displayed if active to the
overview screen of the Admin/Queues screen.

Can you understand me???

In our example we have another important point - the german workers council
and Reporting.

As you may know form our last training, we do reporting of rt tickets with
Business Objects and we have to make sure, that a queue with german users is
not reported by BO, so for this case a CF on a Queue Like “Reporting -
yes/no” would also make sense and so on and on.

See you in Amsterdam!

use it for?

Specifically, I’m looking to set up a queue owner who gets notified of
new tickets, but is not added as a Cc or AdminCc to the ticket itself.
In general, it could be used for holding all sorts of information to be
used by Scrips or reports. Thanks!

For that, create an “On Create, Notify Other Recipients” scrip with a
template with a To: line of the people you want to notify.

For that, you probably want Attributes, not Custom Fields. (though CFs
would work if coded)

Thanks, wasn’t sure how the “Notify Other Recipients” worked exactly.
But I would then need to do that for each Queue, whereas if I had some
way to specify the To: on the Queue itself, I could have one, global scrip.

What are Attributes with a capital ‘A’? Or am I reading too much into it?

Thanks!

Joe,

It's my understanding that "cc" watcher is NOT the same as a "cc" on a 

ticket. Therefore, you could set up an “on create” scrip to notify "cc"
watchers. Hope this helps.

Or use NotifyGroup extension available from the CPAN.

A per-queue template with the same name as a global one will override
the global one.

This might be a configuration question. (RT 3.6.1)

After creating a custom field you have to assign it to any queue,
otherwise it would not be seen there.

This assignment can be done individually queue by queue.

So I we have some CF created once and get used in all Queues, while
other CFs (e.g. Selectlist ‘CPU’ ) are created more than once with
diffent values (one with 16bit-cpus one with 32bit-cpus)

Then assigned in Queue support-16bit only the 16bit-CF

Does this touch your question? Or did’nt I understand your question.

Hi Olaf,

With the way you explain, you assign a CF to a queue, but in detail, you
assign it to the tickets inside the queue, not the queue itself.

What i have tried to explain is the ability to assign CF’s to a queue in the
same way, you can do it to users and groups.
