Queue Question and users who can view a queue

I’m attempting to create a list of users that are able to view just the
queue that they belong too. I’m starting to run in circles string to
figure this out.

Example…

Users A,B, and C I want to be part of the support queue.

Users E and F are part of a NET-OPS queue.

Id like users a,b and c to be able to view only the support queue. At
the same time Id like to have the NET-OPS users be able to monitor both
the Support and NET-OPS queue.

I have tried many combinations of permissions to accomplish this how
ever I have not had any luck… I can only get users to view the tickets
that they open. I want them to see all tickets sent to the queue for the
department that they belong too.

Thanks
Shawn

Grant SeeQueue and ShowTicket and whatever else you need to a-e on
support. Grant to only e and f on NET-OPS. Make sure you have no
global rights that will supercede the queue rights.

This becomes much easier if you put the users into groups first.
Create a support group for users a,b,c, and a net-ops group for
the others. Give the support group the permissions you want
on the support queue. Give the net-ops group permissions on
both queues. If you want them to get email copies you have
to also make them admincc’s.

Just to be sure things are set up right I wanted to remove the groups
and users and start from scratch. Im unable to find away to remove users
and groups as well as queus.-----Original Message-----

You can never (without external tools) remove anything from RT. You
can disable users, groups and queues or just dump in a new database if
there is nothing worth preserving.
