Query by Current Date

Hello, I’m running RT 3.8.8 on Solaris 10 with Oracle 10g,

I would like to create a saved search that shows me everything that I
own that is due after today (basically a to-do list of long-term
items). I understand how to do the first part (everything I own) by
using ‘CurrentUser’ in the owner field. But how do I query based
on the current date? Can I use an equivalent string such as
CurrentDate’? This does not work, nor do a number of possible
alternatives (including sysdate).

I looked in /lib/RT/Ticket_Overlay_SQL.pm (where grep told me
CurrentUser is implemented) and I did not find another replace for
any other variable. I also cannot find anything by searching in the
archives on this topic. Has anyone else searched based on the current
date who can give a quick answer? Or would I have to use custom code
to do this? If so, what should it be and where should it go?

Thanks in advance,
AJ

Search harder / check the wiki. RT groks expressions like '2 days ago’
or ‘-2 days’

Thank you, I guess I didn’t search hard enough. I think ‘Today’ was
not one of the various alternatives I used - I tried things like
CurrentDate and Now and GetDate and even SetToNow() - but this
works great!

Again, thanks for the quick response for a newbie like me,

Looks like the query Due > ‘Today’ works. Just add Today in the Criteria list in the query builder.
