Pulling AT custom fields into ticket custom fields

I currently have it set up where I have a ticket custom field set up
with all the assets in AT. When creating a ticket it makes the link to
the asset based on the custom field.

I want to set it up now where when a user picks the asset in the CF for
the ticket, a number of custom fields in the ticket will be populated
based on the custom field values from the asset. This way I can query a
ticket using any spec from the asset

I think I can write the scrip but I can’t figure out how to extract the
custom field value for a given field on given asset. I can’t seem to
find the sub routine in any of the RTx lib files.

Any suggestions?

Asset Tracker uses RT’s custom field libraries, so that’s where to
look for the appropriate methods.On Mon, Jun 28, 2010 at 1:21 PM, Adam Brown Adam.Brown@fidessa.com wrote:

All scripts and html files that I have seen seem to call the libraries from the RTx directories.
Ie. RTx::AssetTracker::Assets->new($RT::SystemUser);

Are Asset.pm and Record.pm in …/lib/RTx/AssetTracker/ the place to be looking or somewhere else?

Thanks

Asset Tracker uses RT’s custom field libraries, so that’s where to
look for the appropriate methods.

Found some code in another thread.

my $AssObj = RTx::AssetTracker::Asset->new(RT->SystemUser);
$AssObj->Load($AssId);
my $AssCFs=$AssObj->CustomFields();
while(my $AssCF = $AssCFs->Next()) {
print $AssCF->Name, “: “;
my $AssValues=$AssObj->CustomFieldValues($AssCF->id);
while($AssValues and my $assvalue = $AssValues->Next) {
print $AssValue->Content,”\t”;
}
print “\n”;
}
