Scrips - accessing "requestor" name from a ticket that has just b een created

I have written a scrip that states following:

Description: Add Department to Ticket
Condition: On Create
Action: User Defined
Template: Global Template: Blank
Stage: Transaction Create

Custom condition: none
Custom action preparation code: return 1;
Custom action cleanup code:
$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21”);

my $people = $Ticket->Requestors->UserMembersObj;
my $requestor=$people->Next || undef

my $department = “unknown”;

if ($requestor) {
$UserObj->Load($requestor->id);
$department = $UserObj->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘Department’);
}
$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21 for department: $department”);
return undef;

Now I want to fetch the “Requestors” field of a new ticket with this on
create scrip, then lookup that
requestor and grab a custom field (Department) and then place it in another
object related to the ticket called “DepartmentTicket”.

However, $Ticket doesnt yet exist (at least I dont think so), so how would I
go about grabbing
the requestor field from the Create.html file?

Thanks,

Ok I have updated my script because I found out how to get the ID of the
requestor.

Now I am having trouble getting the UserObj:

== START

$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21”);

my $department = “unknown”;
my $requestor=$self->TransactionObj->Creator;

if ($requestor) {

my $UserObj = new RT::User($session{‘CurrentUser’});

my $UserObj = RT::User->new(RT::CurrentUser->new(‘CurrentUser’));
$UserObj->Load($requestor->id) if defined($requestor);

$department = $UserObj->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘Department’);
}

$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21 for requestor: " .
$self->TransactionObj->Creator .” department: " . $department);

return undef;

== END

With this I get:
[Tue Jul 12 20:27:28 2005] [error]: Scrip 21 Commit failed: Can’t call
method “id” without a package or object re
ference at (eval 754) line 15, line 53.

With #my $UserObj = new RT::User($session{‘CurrentUser’}); in the code
commented “IN”, I get:
[Tue Jul 12 20:19:31 2005] [error]: Scrip 21 Commit failed: Global symbol
"%session" requires explicit package na
me at (eval 689) line 13, line 53.

Any ideas on how I can get access to $UserObj so I can load the ID of that
user and then grab their department (custom field)?

So sorry… I found out how to get what I wanted :slight_smile:

$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21”);

my $department = “unknown”;
my $requestor=$self->TransactionObj->Creator;

if ($requestor) {
my $UserObj = RT::User->new( $RT::SystemUser );
$UserObj->Load($requestor);
$department = $UserObj->FirstCustomFieldValue(‘Department’);
}

$RT::Logger->debug( “COGR - testscript #21 for requestor: " .
$self->TransactionObj->Creator .” department: " . $department);

return undef;
