How to set a specific 'Depended on' by from scrip

Hi,

On ticket creation, I made a custom scrip to assigne the new ticket to a
specified user based on a requestor address. This is working with the
following action cleanup :

my $newowner = “userName”;
my $T_Obj = $self->TicketObj;
my ($status, $msg) = $self->TicketObj->SetOwner( $newowner );
unless( $status ) {
$RT::Logger->error( “Unable to assign the ticket to $newowner: $msg” );
return undef;
}
return 1;

In addition, I’d like to specify a link “Depended on by” to the tickets
according to the previous test. I’m still confusing how I should update
this field.

$RT::Logger->info(“Auto reference ticket #”. $T_Obj->id ." to ticket #1234"
);
my ($status, $msg) = $self->TicketObj->_Set( ‘DependedOnBy’, ‘1234’);
unless( $status ) {
$RT::Logger->error( “Unable to assign the ticket DependedOnBy” );
return undef;
}
return 1;

Can anyone help me to go on the right way ?

_Set is really dangerous. In general, you should never use it.

You want to call AddLink on your ticket.

Excellent, I finally got what I want doing like this :

my $newdependedonby = 1234;
my ($status, $msg) =
$self->TicketObj->AddLink(Type=>‘DependsOn’,Base=>$newdependedonby );

Thanks Kevin,
