Hi RT Experts

I am using RT 3.6.5. on a Fedora 9 Machine, everything is fine

but on my few merged ticket i get the following error mail generated and
sent to root user. on every reply this error mail generated.

“RT thinks this message may be a bounce”

Rana,

When you merged the initial ticket, did you merge it into a ticket in 

the same queue?

This message is often caused by sending mail from an RT ticket to an
address that feeds back into RT.

I believe you should check RTAddressRegexp in your RT_SiteConfig.pm. Add
all addresses that go to RT in there.

Rana,

If you know SQL and have either SQL Plus or SQL Navigator (or some 

other tool), you might want to take a look at the “TICKETS” table. This
table will show you any links, tickets it merged from, etc. That might
tell you something. Have you run a query to see what queues there
are/were in? If a ticket from another Queue was merged into a ticket in
a different Queue AND if that is the cause, you might be able to
correct the problem by unmerging the ticket, moving it to the correct
queue and THEN merging it.
To stop the problem, you could write a scrip that evaluates the "FROM"
queue on a merge and if no the same as the “TO” queue, do not complete
the transaction, or if that’s not possible, UNDO the transaction. Just a
thought.

I just upgraded our RT from 3.6.4 to 3.8.1 applied all required patches
and modules as per README file. I am using external authentication and
although the upgrade was successful, but each time a user logs in and
clicks on any tabs, or tickets they get logged off and they have to
login back in again to complete the task they wanted to.

Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Hossein

It sounds like you are using a newer version of MySQL. You must follow
the MySQL upgrade procedures even if you were using MySQL 4.0 or lower
prior to moving to 3.8.1 The upgrade docs falsely give the impression
that this is only the case when moving to MySQL 4.1+ from MySQL 4.0.
Even if everything seemed to be working with the previous version, your
tables need to be converted to the new character set.

I upgraded our RT from 3.6.4 to 3.81. Can anyone on the list point me to
a resource where I can read and understand how the new iCal feature
works on 3.8.1?

There’s a link on all ticket search results. You can subscribe to the
due dates of any tasklist as an ical feed by copy-pasting that link into
your calendar app.

For example, I have all our customer project due dates show up in my
google calendar :wink:

Best,
Jesse

How do you do that? I assume you’re not running under RT under SSL then?
Our RT is over SSL, and google calendar refuses to add an RT iCal feed…

Thanks for the info. I did install RTx::Calendar from cpan, but the
installation procedure put everything in /usr/share/rt3!
Placing Set(@Plugins,(qw(RTx::Calendar))); in RT_SiteConfig is giving
the following error:
Can’t locate RTx/Calendar.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/opt/rt3/bin/…/local/lib /opt/rt3…

Any Ideas?

Very odd. I checked our logs, and it seems both gmail and google apps
are trying to access the URL without SSL, even when the URI is given as SSL!

https://rt.cambenergy.org/NoAuth/iCal/jpierce/65e81d957985da6d/Owner%20%3D%20CurrentUser

ssl-access_log:

HTTP/1.1” 404 5518 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1;
+http://www.google.com/bot.html)”

For the records, I ended up downloading RTx Calendar tarball and
modified the Makefile to get this working. I am at loss why perl put
everything in /usr/share/rt3! This is a dedicated VM host that only runs
our RT. But, live and learn I guess.

Thanks to everyone who replied, – and Cheers,
Hossein

Are you (Kevin, Jesse, other SSL iCal + google calendar users)
certain that google is accessing your feed over SSL? Does your
NoAuth happen to also be available sans SSL?

Hi Steve.

I tried several methods to send the replies to some test tickets. but i
am
not getting the bounce error…

can you please explain it again for me. because i want to diagnose what
is
the problem. like how specifically i should send mail to ticket to get
this
error.

thanks

Hi,

From an RT ticket in the web interface, send a reply. On this reply,
include a To, Cc, or Bcc recipient address that is the address of one of
your RT queues. The reply should come into RT and generate the bounce
message.
