RT Command Line

Hello list,

Simple question for you. If I wanted to run the RT command line from my
local computer (which is a mac), it is necessary to install the full RT
first? Or is it possible to download the RT CLI separately?

Thanks
Tim

You do not need all of RT, but I’m not aware of a separate packaging
for bin/rt. You can scp your.rt.server:/opt/rt4/bin/rt down to your
Mac and then install the few non-core dependencies that it has (you can
see them listed around line 65 or so of bin/rt).

If you don’t have access to your RT server, you could download the RT
tarball and take the copy of bin/rt inside it, which is configured to
use #!/usr/bin/perl.

Hey Kevin,

That’s awesome advice. Thanks, and I’ll do that. I built the RT server and
I really like working with it. Looking forward to getting more comfortable
with the command line. I hear it’s a bit more limited in what it can do
than the web gui, but what it can do is allow you to process your tickets a
lot faster. And yes we have a lot of them here.

Regards,
