RT thinks that the ticket has no recipients

RT version 3.8.1, ExternalAuth version 0.08

I’ve run into a problem with testing the instance of RT I’ve installed that the notification emails aren’t getting sent. The mail log doesn’t list anything being processed, so I checked the httpd error_log, and see the following:

You sent this same message 1.5 hours earlier. You (likely) didn’t get
a response because you didn’t include any specific information. At
10k feet it could be anything. Start at a lower level – who should
have gotten mail? Who shows up on the People tab of the ticket? If
there’s nobody there…On Apr 21, 2009, at 3:27 PM, Gary Greene wrote:

[info] means its informational. If was an error it would say [error]. So,
those log entries don’t really tell you anything other than what you already
know. The problem is likely your config and/or usage.

Regarding sending twice, that was because I didn’t see it come through the list, since the Exchange server thought it fun to deliver only the CC’d version of the message instead of the one for the ML. Apologies about that…

those recipients for the event you want to trigger the email?

The default setting is not to send e-mail to people about their own
tickets. This duplicate suppression is why you’re getting no e-mail.
You can change this in your settings, or use some freemail (Google,
Yahoo, etc) accounts for testing purposes.

I expect that the owner of the ticket will get a confirmation email when they first post and when a reply comes in, and if the requestor responds to the ticket, that the owner will get a confirmation email. From the sound of it, it requires a little more setup on my part to get it to do precisely what I want.

Do you have scrips configured in this queue (or global ones)
that cover
those recipients for the event you want to trigger the email?

I should, since I’ve got the normal global scrips set for comments and replies.

Where in the settings? I don’t see a setting for it in the web UI. Is this another option that needs set in RT_SiteConfig.pm?

I should, since I’ve got the normal global scrips set for comments and replies.

“I should” tells me you haven’t looked at the scrips for the queue (and I
have no idea what the “normal” global scrips would be, been quite a while
since I had a default installation).

Configuration -> Queues -> -> Scrips

Pay attention to the condition. “On create” is a different condition than
"on comment" and “on correspond”.

Yes, its in the config, not the UI.

By default, RT doesn’t notify the person who performs an update, as they
already know what they’ve done. If you’d like to change this behavior,
Set $NotifyActor to 1.

Set($NotifyActor, 1);
