RT::Action::EscalatePriorityLinear

Hello,

The wiki entry for this has a fair amount of code, but no information about
where to get it or how to get it running. CPAN doesn’t think it exists.
ConfigureEscalation on the wiki says
"EscalatePriorityLinearhttp://wiki.bestpractical.com/view/EscalatePriorityLinear.pm
can be copied to local/lib/RT/Action/." Sounds good; where is EPL.pm? Is
that the first code block, and if so, do i just paste that into Action/? Is
the patch to avoid Last Modified: being changed by cron still necessary in
3.8.2?

Thanks,
Rob

It’s a standard part of 3.8.x – no need to install anything extra.
To use it, all you need to do is set up a cron job something like this:

6 0 * * * /usr/local/bin/rt-crontool --search RT::Search::ActiveTicketsInQueue --search-arg General --action RT::Action::LinearEscalate

I run that using a special minimum privilege ‘rtcrontool’ userid, both
at the OS level and in RT itself.

Cheers,

Matthew
