New Ticket Web Interface

Perhaps I am missing this in the docs. However, does the
RT package support an interface where any person wanting
to open a ticket can complete the form in a brower? Are
new ticket requests only handled by email?

Thanks
Jon

From the main “Start” page, there is a button on the upper right that says,
“New Ticket in.” There is a drop-down box right next to it that lets you
select the queue. Just select, click the button, and it brings you to the
form to fill in for your new ticket.–On Wednesday, September 25, 2002 3:52 PM +0000 jshoberg@attbi.com wrote:

It depends on what you mean by “any person wanting to open a ticket”.

Any person can open a ticket by email. If they are not an RT user, a
user will be created for them automagically. However, for a user to
access the WebUI, they must have a login/password. This means that only
those users that you have entered and assigned a password to will be
able to create a ticket. They must be able to login in order to access
the main “Start” page.

Any person can open a ticket by email. If they are not an RT user, a
user will be created for them automagically. However, for a user to
access the WebUI, they must have a login/password. This means that only
those users that you have entered and assigned a password to will be
able to create a ticket. They must be able to login in order to access
the main “Start” page.

It’s also pretty straightforward to do this without a password, with
a Web form that:

  • talks to the API to create the ticket
    OR
  • calls rt(1) to create the ticket
    OR
  • sends mail (or calls rt-mailgate itself).

The last one seems most straightforward to me. :slight_smile:
