Scrip failure following 3.8.1 -> 3.8.8 upgrade

We’ve just upgraded our RT installation from 3.8.1 to 3.8.8 and it
mostly went very seamlessly.

However, since making the new version live I’ve noticed that one of our
global Scrips has stopped working.

The scrip reads:

Description: Open on take
Condition: User defined
Action: Open Tickets
Template: Global template: Blank
Stage: TransactionCreate

Custom Condition:
if ($self->TicketObj->Status eq ‘new’ && $self->TransactionObj->Type eq
’Take’)
{
return 1;
}
else
{
return undef;
}

So, a fairly simple Scrip to ‘Open’ a ticket when it’s taken by someone.
However, since the upgrade to 3.8.8 it has stopped working.

Any idea what could be causing it? I don’t see anything applicable in RT
or Apache logs…

Cheers,

John.

Hmm, that doesn’t show anything as such (after I get the logging syntax
right)…but I know can see that an error in the log does appear to be
associated with this Scrip:

Now, to see what it thinks it means…

OK this second error is actually a red herring, caused by another Scrip
I had created to investigate this problem.

What does fix it is to change the Action to ‘User Defined’ with the code:

$self->TicketObj->Open();

So, the problem seems to be with the “Open Tickets” action…

John,

Just for kicks, try it this way:

Custom Condition:
return ($self->TicketObj->Status eq ‘new’ &&
$self->TransactionObj->Type eq ‘Take’);

I’d be interested if that worked.

isn’t being performed.

This is some change in the behaviour of RT between 3.8.1 and 3.8.8 that
has caught us unawares. Reading into this a bit more, it looks like the
’Open Tickets’ action was written with a very specific purpose in mind,
to re-open tickets if the requester sends further email. We were not
using the action for this purpose.

So, I guess the appropriate final solution is indeed to use custom

John,

We do the same thing, but our code is this:

Custom Condition Code:

Check for Ticket Status changed to “open”

my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;

return ($trans->Type eq “Status” &&
$trans->NewValue eq “open”);

Custom Prep Code:

set owner if Nobody

my $ticket = $self->TicketObj;
my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;
my $owner_id = $trans->CreatorObj->PrincipalId;

if ($ticket->OwnerObj->Name() eq ‘Nobody’ )
{
$ticket->SetOwner($owner_id, ‘Force’);
}

return 1;

Hope this helps.

Yes, I don’t really think we want the additional logic in AutoOpen at all.

This is some change in the behaviour of RT between 3.8.1 and 3.8.8 that
has caught us unawares. Reading into this a bit more, it looks like the
’Open Tickets’ action was written with a very specific purpose in mind,
to re-open tickets if the requester sends further email. We were not
using the action for this purpose.

Check the logic again, it says “If the ticket is the new and this
transaction was from the Requestor, don’t change it to open”

Well, I don’t quite understand the logic, because I don’t understand the
significance of “$self->TransactionObj->IsInbound”.

I know your problem is solved at this point, but if you want to
understand more, Transaction_Overlay.pm contains documentation for
that method.

If you goal is to always change the status to open with no
restrictions, then yes, one line of custom action is the correct
solution.

Yes, I don’t really think we want the additional logic in AutoOpen at all.

Many thanks for your help.

It’s probably worth saying, for the record, that this was nothing to do
with our upgrade from 3.8.1 to 3.8.8.

It was merely me seeing some odd behaviour while testing after the
upgrade and making the assumption that the upgrade broke something. :confused:

Ah, that plus the RT::Action::AutoOpen POD does seem to just about cover
the documentation angle, indeed.
