Notify based on CF

I am interested in setting up a notification tree based on a Custom Field value. Basically, I have one Q that accepts tickets from multiple physical locations. I have a tech at each location. I would like the tech at location X to be notified when a ticket comes in with the Custom Field Location=X . When the CF Location=Y, I want a different tech notified, etc…

Thanks for any help…

Do you want a partial solution, to get started?

I installed RT::Extension::ExtractCustomFieldValues and I think your first step would be to add a Scrip for “On Create” with action “Extract Custom Field Values” but exactly what you’d need to do then eludes me. Something like “Create a template where the To: line is based on the value in the Custom Field”

But I’m still pretty new at all this RT stuff.

I am interested in setting up a notification tree based on a Custom Field value. Basically, I
have one Q that accepts tickets from multiple physical locations. I have a tech at each
location. I would like the tech at location X to be notified when a ticket comes in with the
Custom Field Location=X . When the CF Location=Y, I want a different tech notified, etc…

I’d have a Scrip that set the Owner based on that CF and then have a
scrip that notifies Owners on owner change.

That is exactly what I would like to have happen, but I am having a bit of a challenge finding the correct code snipits to accomplish this. I believe that I am pretty much looking at a big if/then statement. I am pretty much a novice at Perl but can figure things out if pushed in the right direction.

If I have a custom field called ‘Location’ and a user called ‘Bob’ with an e-mail of ‘bob@bob.com’, what is the beginning of a scrip that would test the Location and notify Bob if the Location matches, say, Oregon?

Do I need two scrips here? One to do the matching and set the owner, and another to do the notification?

Thanks for the help,

I have RT::Extension::ExtractCustomFieldValues installed and working. I do not have a problem populating the CF of a ticket. What I do need is a way to test that value and then notify an e-mail address based on the CF value.

Basically, I need some help with Perl to accomplish this…

Kurt,

I agree with Kevin. The following is a simple scrip that sets the Owner
based on the value in a Custom Field array:

Name: Set owner on CF
Condition:On Create
Action:User-defined
Template: Blank
Stage: TransactionCreate or TransactionBatch

Custom Action Prep:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Set ticket owner based on Custom Field

KFCrocker 6/01/09

-------------------------------------------------------------------

set new ticket owner id value

my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;
my $ticket = $self->TicketObj;
my $ownerid = 10; # Nobody

my %orgs = qw(
value1 999
value2 999
value3 999
);

my $cf = new RT::CustomField($RT::SystemUser);
$cf->LoadByName(Queue => $ticket->QueueObj->id,Name => “CF Name”);
return 0 unless $cf->id;
my $cfvalue = $ticket->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘CFO-Org’);
my $ownerid = $orgs{$cfvalue};

set new Ticket Owner ID

$ticket->SetOwner($ownerid);

return 1;

Custom Action Cleanup:
return 1;

Then follow up by creating a separate notification on Owner change.

Hope this helps.

Sorry, I forgot to change this line:

Ken, thanks for the code. I will give it a go and see what happens. One question. I am not wanting to set the owner of the ticket, but simply send out a notification to a specific person based on the CF value. The owner of the ticket will be set in the usual manner of 'take’ing the ticket.

Does that change this process?

Ken… I pretty much have this working but I am getting an error in the code of the scrip that you sent me. Here is the scrip as I ahve it on my system:
my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;
my $ticket = $self->TicketObj;
my $ownerid = 10; # Nobody

my %org = qw(
ComputerandInformationSvs 34
SEHS 34
);

my $cf = new RT::CustomField($RT::SystemUser);
$cf->LoadByName(Queue => $ticket->QueueObj->id,Name => “Building”);
return 0 unless $cf->id;
my $cfvalue = $ticket->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘Building’);
$cfvalue =~ s/\s+//g;

my $ownerid = $orgs{$cfvalue};

set new Ticket Owner ID

$ticket->SetOwner($ownerid);

return 1;

I am getting this error when it runs:
Scrip 24 Prepare failed: Global symbol “%orgs” requires explicit package name at (eval 6318) line 16. (/opt/rt3/bin/…/lib/RT/Action/UserDefined.pm:64)

If I remove the ‘my $ownerid = $orgs{$cfvalue};’ line the error goes away and, of course, the last line does not work.

You declare “my %org” but then use the variable as %orgs with “= $orgs{$cfvalue}”

The extra s is the problem.From: Kurt Engle [mailto:engle@4j.lane.edu]
