Script User Condition help

Ok, I am giving up on this without any PERL expert hints (A BIG ONE). It seems I am able to recreate the RT scrip condition “ON STATUS CHANGE”, but it’s still failing to do what I wish to do.

That is when ticket status set to “resolved” status, I would like the scrip to stop sending out “ON STATUS CHANGE” notifications. Only do it when the ticket is under status. I’ve tried to do a printf and see if there is something wrong $ticket->Status but am unable to get a printf info.

Please help! Thanks!

my $TicketStatusCondition=$self->TransactionObj;
my $ticket = $self->TicketObj;

printf $ticket->Status;

if ($ticket->Status ne ‘resolved’) {
$TicketStatusCondition -> SetExecModule(“AnyTransaction”);
$TicketStatusCondition -> SetApplicableTransTypes(“Status”);
return(1);
}
else {
return(‘undef’);
}

No one have a clue as to what I did wrong or rather ideas as to how to get this working? :(From: rt-users-bounces@lists.bestpractical.com on behalf of Jonathan Chen

Ok, the code seems not working. Maybe I’ve inserted it in the wrong place of the scrip.

Here is my setting script for RT 3.11

a) Notify on Ticket Status
"User Defined Notify Requestors, Ccs and AdminCcs with template Transaction content"

b)In the “Notify on Ticket Status”, I inserted your code in “Custom condition” with line “Condition” changed to “user defined”.

That’s it and I still get 2 emails sent to the requestor with

  1. “Your ticket has been resolved” template.
  2. “Transaction: Status changed from open to resolved by root” – I only want notifications sent out only when the status is not “resolved”

Thanks for any help you can give…From: Ruslan U. Zakirov [mailto:cubic@acronis.ru]

This steps are OK.
:slight_smile: I’ve found error :)))
it’s ‘undef’, undef is special perl OP, which shouldn’t be qouted :slight_smile:
If we qoute it then condition return string ‘undef’ which is true value.
Copy&Paste error. Sorry.

my $tr = $self->TransactionObj;
if ($tr->Field eq ‘Status’ && $tr->NewValue ne ‘resolved’) {
return 1;
} else {
return undef;
}
Best regards. Ruslan.

Thanks! That worked. I wonder if my previous code would’ve worked if I did “return undef” too.

If I understood your code correctly, the “TransactionObj” holds all the table fields and it should be used most of the time for custom scrips?

In custom code(in both: condition, action) you can use next calls:
my $TransactionObj = $self->TransactionObj;
my $TicketObj = $self->TicketObj;
my $TemplateObj = $self->TemplateObj;

Each object represent record in tables: Transactions, Tickets, Templates.
