Question on CommandByMail error

To List,

I’m using CommandByMail and I keep getting this error message, yet the data
is updated:

Failed command 'due: 2010-11-28’
Error message: (no message)

Due: 2010-11-28

The Duse was modified, so why the error message?

I tried this several times, ie. Due:11-26-2010; Due: 2010-11-28; Due:
11-26-2010, etc.

Anyone know why?

I don’t have anything useful to contribute for an answer, other than “Me
too”. I have this exact same issue and I tried every format I could think
of, nothing worked. Eventually I just gave up.

If you figure it out, do let us know (please!)

Jon,

Actually, I have noticed a couple problems, especially for any Custom Fields
defined as “Text” or “Wiki Text”. Whether I use Gmail, Thunderbird, etc. it
only manages to capture the first 76 characters. I think it needs to be
re-worked for those type of CF’s to capture all text until it runs into
another Field command or “END” or something.

The test suite passes using a timestamp (which is what the
documentation indicates). Does that work for you?

Kevin,

I don’t understand ‘test suite’ nor what ‘timestamp’ refers to.

I don’t understand ‘test suite’ nor what ‘timestamp’ refers to.

The module has a series of tests that are run before a release, and it
passes. That test suite tests Due.

A timestamp is a timestamp, what RT displays dates as by default.

Once you figure it out, documentation patches to make it clearer for
you are welcome in the rt.cpan queue for the module.

Kevin,

Actually, I wasn’t concerned with a timestamp. I’m more concerned with why
I’m getting an error message even though the ticket fields are updated using
CommandByMail. That’s why I included the “debug” info in my last note.
Do you have any ideas on where I can look for the problem?

Because the Due fails (according to your logs). So it logs an error.
Perhaps you could be clearer about "the ticket fields are updated"
since you started this thread saying that Due doesn’t work and then
showed logs where Due doesn’t work because you’re using the wrong
format.

Kevin,

My apologies. I thought I had been clear. I’m not seeing where the format is
wrong. I looked at the Tools->Offline template and used that as a basis for
my template.
Due:followed by a date

Are you saying the format I use for the date itself is wrong?

Are you saying the format I use for the date itself is wrong?

Yes. Your format is wrong.

I believe I’ve said that in each reply (I’ve snipped them below)

Kevin,

I’m sorry. I know I’m hard to deal with. We don’t use timestamp on any of
our dates. We just use dates. Our global system default is time=>0 in our
date format:
*Set($DateTimeFormat, {Format => ‘LocalizedDate’, Time => 0,});

*So when we want to set a date, we just want the date, hence “Due:
2010-11-15”.
However, if you’re saying the format of the date itself (2010-11-15) is
wrong, then I am wondering what it should be since our "LocalizedDate"
format is yyyy-mm-dd.

Is that a clearer explanation of where I’m coming from?

That is irrelevant.
The module does not pay attention to your date settings.

It takes a Timestamp

Hello,

I encounter the same problem, and tried to identify what the difference is between timestamp and what I entered in the field “Due:”.

My mail is only (except object of the email referring to an existing ticket) :

Due:2011-05-09 16:00:00

And I receive :
Failed command 'due: 2011-05-09 16:00:00’
Error message: (no message)

And effectively, the field is correctly updated in the ticket.
Can someone point me how to generate a “good” timestamp ?
