Forward ticket with complete history and attachments (refresh)

Hello everybody,

does RT 4.2.10 support forward of tickets as a whole (ideally CF’s included
automatically in the body) to external email address, or do I have to mess
in the code as advised in this thread
(http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/95422 5 years ago, RT
3.8.8)?

Thank you & best regards

Piotr

Hello again,

to be more precise: RT does forward tickets, but only transactions of type
’correspond’. I want RT to forward all transactions - inclusive ‘comments’.
How to?

Thanks in advance for any hint.

BR, Piotr

Hello again,

I’m close to the solution.

The most important thing is to include comments:

file ~/rt4/lib/RT/Action/SendForward.pm line 97:

VALUE => [qw(Create Correspond Comment)],

To make RT also to forward Forward transactions (while forwarding you can
add message too), you need

VALUE => [qw(Create Correspond Comment Forward Ticket)],

The problem is that the name of this transactions contain space and is
treated as two separate transactions types (i.e. Forward and Ticket).

This trick below does not work:

VALUE => [qw(Create Correspond Comment “Forward\ Ticket”)],

I renamed the transaction type in the database and it works as expected.

Where are all the transaction types defined? BTW: the convention is
inconsistent, because another transaction types e.g. CommentEmailRecord,
EmailRecord, SetWatcher, CustomField do not contain spaces. In my opinion
it’s deserves a change request.

Thank you & best regards

PS. Thank you, Jerome Ch. from Canada for you help!

If your array has spaces in the items, then the perl function qw isn’t
what you want. Just use a list:

VALUE => [
‘Create’,
‘Correspond’,
‘Comment’,
‘Forward Ticket’,
],

or you could intermix qw into the list, but that is unsightly:

VALUE => [
qw(Create Correspond Comment),
‘Forward Ticket’,
],

I renamed the transaction type in the database and it works as expected.

I wouldn’t do that. Touching the DB seems to be the wrong approach.

Matt, thank you very much.
VALUE => [‘Create’,‘Correspond’,‘Comment’,‘Forward Ticket’],
It works and I know, how to add more!
And touching the DB was only to check, whether the space in the name was really the only problem. It was, and I reverted to original “out of the box” setting.
Many thanx again.
Have a nice day, Piotr
