Quick delete extension with rt 4.02

I’m getting started with RT 4.02. From the Best Practical site (http://www.bestpractical.com/rt/extensions.html?J:V-region-extension-list.id=39) it says that the “quick delete” extension is built into RT since 4.0. Does that mean I don’t need to invoke it from RT_SiteConfig.pm? I tried adding it – then it looks for the extension and errors out. So I’m guessing not. However, after adding the default search parameters that include the quickdelete line item …
.
.
.
Priority,
QuickDelete,
NEWLINE’,
.
.
.
I get a blank column for the quickdelete column. I tried adding the extension, but I get the same result and then a different error regarding the extension. Any ideas? Is this a bug? – Thanks.

By “included in 4.0” we don’t mean that the extension is literally
packaged with it, and then enabled with a @Plugins line, we mean that
the functionality exists in core and you don’t need the extension.

You can configure RT to have a Quick Delete action using Lifecycles,
which will get you Quick Delete menu items, and you can configure the
Format to work by coping one of the Take examples and tweaking the
url parameters.

If you want the QuickDelete format parameter to still work, you could
install the version on github. As documented in the README there,
you’ll get the Format parameter, but not the link.

Thanks for your help on this. You mentioned the following:
“You can configure RT to have a Quick Delete action using
Lifecycles, which will get you Quick Delete menu items, and you can

tweaking the url parameters.”

I did read up on Lifecycles in the RT_Config.pm document. I’m not clear on how to implement this though. At least in this situation. You also mentioned “Take” examples. Where are those?

Thanks again. --Shawn— On Tue, 8/30/11, Kevin Falcone falcone@bestpractical.com wrote:

Just don’t provide an update type. Look at the Transitions

At least in this situation. You also mentioned “Take” examples. Where are those?

Review the mailing list thread from earlier today with Take in the
