RT-Extension-CommandByMail <- I can't update tickets by mail

I need some advice with getting the CommandByMail extension working. I’ve
followed the installation instructions here:
http://search.cpan.org/dist/RT-Extension-CommandByMail/lib/RT/Extension/CommandByMail.pm

I’m on 4.4 so I’ve commented out the old @Mailplugin lines in
RT_Siteconfig.pm

Here’s an excerpt from RT_Siteconfig.pm where I’ve tried to add in the
correnct lines:

RT 4.2 plugins are not forward compatible with RT 4.4 - removed the

following (CJM)
#Plugin(‘RT::Extension::CommandByMail’);
#Set(@MailPlugins, qw(Auth::MailFrom Filter::TakeAction));
#Set( $CommandByMailGroup, ‘APNK Staff’);

added for 4.4. by CJM

#Set( @MailPlugins,

“Action::Take”,

);

added by CJM

enables updating the status of a ticket via email

Set(@MailPlugins, qw(Auth::MailFrom Action::CommandByMail));

I’ve included the commented bits because that shows what I removed when I
upgraded to 4.4.

I have also applied the patch as specified in the instructions.

During early troubleshooting I looked for CommandByMail.pm and could not
find it in my RT installation. With some guesswork I figured it should be
found here:

/opt/rt4/lib/RT/Interface/Email/Action/

I downloaded the source .pm from the cpan.org page linked above and copied
it to that folder. I’ve checked that the permissions for it are the same as
the other files there.

Am I even on the right track here? I’m sending an update to RT with
"Status: resolved" as the only line in the body and the ticket isn’t
changing status.

Chris

You still need the ‘Plugin’ line, so you’ll want to uncomment:

Plugin(‘RT::Extension::CommandByMail’);

I’d be curious why the file wasn’t installed when your ran ‘make
install’ only because the underlying issue might lead to other problems.
You might try running the install again to make sure the files are
installed correctly.

Lastly, note that we have one report of an issue with the
CommandByMailGroup option that we’re investigating.On 5/18/16 4:45 PM, Chris McClement wrote:

Thanks Jim, that solved it!

For completeness, I did run the install again. Here’s how it went:

[root@myserver RT-Extension-CommandByMail-2.01]# perl Makefile.PL

I suspect the “Skip blib/lib/RT/Interface/Email/Action/CommandByMail.pm
(unchanged)” may not have worked had I not done that manual copy. However I
am unsure as to why it didn’t copy over the in the first place. Never mind,
it’s working and I managed to resolve my test ticket with an email message.On Thu, 19 May 2016 at 09:21 Jim Brandt jbrandt@bestpractical.com wrote:
