How to pre-fill fields?

How do I pre-fill a field(e.g. the subject fill or description field). .i.e how do I modify RT so that when I click ‘new ticket’ the subject or description fill would already have text that I entered somewhere else?

I have a simple php page I use for my users to submit tickets that utilizes the commandbyemail plugin to set fields like subject, duedate, priority and to add an admincc. I am not near my office network, but if you’re interested, I can post the page code or upload it. It supports attachments as well, but I limit them to 2MB within the php code (which can be changed).

Let me know if there is interest.

I would be interested in seeing your solution, though I don’t know if I’d be able to use it. Can’t I prefill the fields with a scrip?On Sat, 16 Oct 2010 23:27:26 +0000, Joe Harris wrote:

If you’re coming from another page, you can post the value of the fields you
want. Look at share/html/Ticket/Create for the variable names.

If you want to put default values, create a callback for Ticket/Create that
would fill the required fields.

Thanks Mathieu. I am particularly interested in the CallBack method you mention but I am not a Perl programmer.
Can you give an example to show how I can e.g. set the subject field to “Hello World”?On Sat, 16 Oct 2010 22:59:48 -0400, Mathieu Longtin wrote:

This is a simple example, you will need some perl code. This sets the
subject and the requestor, unless they are already set. You could set other
fields as well.

Put this in the file local/html/Callbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default of you
RT installation. Create the directory path if needed.

<%INIT>
my $ARGSRef = $ARGS{‘ARGSRef’};
if ( not $ARGSRef{‘id’} ) { # Check if the ticket is really empty before
doing anything
$ARGSRef{‘Subject’} ||= ‘Default subject’;
$ARGSRef{‘Requestor’} ||= ‘mydefault@requestor.com’;
}
</%INIT>
<%ARGS>
</%ARGS>

You can also use variables in the URL to the Create.html page. For example rt/Create.html?Queue=3&Requestors=someone@somecompany.com&Subject=Somesubjectmailto:rt/Create.html?Queue=3&Requestors=someone@somecompany.com&Subject=Somesubject

We use this to create links on our wiki to create new tickets for specific customers.
But now I see that the Subject might cause a problem, I don’t know how to specify it if it contains spaces…

Thanks Mathieu. I needed to create a directory between Callbacks and Ticket to invoke the Callback when creating a new ticket.
e.g. local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default
But I am getting the following error:

Error during compilation of /opt/rt3/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default: Global symbol “%ARGSRef” requires explicit package name at /opt/rt3/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default line 3. Global symbol “%ARGSRef” requires explicit package name at /opt/rt3/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default line 4. Global symbol “%ARGSRef” requires explicit package name at /opt/rt3/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Ticket/Create.html/Default line 5.

Can you please help. Also, what is the ARGSRef for the description text-area field?On Sun, 17 Oct 2010 11:35:08 -0400, Mathieu Longtin wrote:

Thanks Mathieu: I got it. An extra $ was needed before ARGSRef from line 3. I have no idea what it is for, I followed other examples from the Internet.
Also the description field is called ‘content’. Thanks again.On Sun, 17 Oct 2010 11:35:08 -0400, Mathieu Longtin wrote:

My bad, all access to ARGSRef need to be like this:

$ARGSRef->{‘id’}
$ARGSRef->{‘Subject’}

With the ->.
