Set status to open when ticket is taken

Another “suggestion” from my pilot group is that they would like tickets
to automatically change status from new to open when taken. Any help
accomplishing that would be appreciated.

TIA,
Steve

It’s not really open until someone actually works on it, is it? Seems like
a semantic issue to me. “New” means “its recorded and waiting for
activity”, “open” means “its being worked on”. If its just assigned and no
activity, its not being worked on. Seems a bit deceptive to preemptively
set it to “open” without actually working on it.

Anyway, philosophy aside, you could do this with a scrip. Make it
condition: On owner change, Action: user definded, Template: blank.

Custom action prep code:
return 1;

Custom action cleanup code:
$self->TicketObj->_Set(Field => ‘Status’, Value => ‘open’, RecordTransaction
=> 0);
return 1;

That’s exactly what I told them, but they told me that they pick up the
ticket and are working on it and then enter in the details when they are
done.

Thanks Much!

They don’t have to “enter details.” Once they do something meaningful on
the ticket, RT will automagically set it to open.
