Simple custom action question

Hey guys,

I want to create a simple scrip that changes the status of a ticket from
New to Open when someone Takes the ticket. The Custom Condition
should be similar to the On Steal example from RT Essentials:

my $trans = $self->TransactionObj;
return 0 unless $trans->Field eq ‘Owner’;
return 1 if $trans->OldValue == RT::Nobody()->id();
return 0;

So the Custom Action should just be a one-liner that changes the ticket
status. I was hoping to find an example of what that line would look
like but couldn’t find one. Thanks for any help!

IIRC, the take action also opens the ticket. Are you talking about
manually changing owner?

No, I’m talking about manually changing the Status from New to Open.

It used to Open the ticket for us under RT 2, but when we updgraded to
3.x, it doesn’t anymore. I always thought that it must’ve been a
custom scrip under RT 2 we had opening the ticket for us.

So you are saying that when we ‘Take’ a ticket, the RT system should be
changing the status from New to Open? Can anyone think of a reason why
this would not be happening under 3.4.4?

This is what we use:

Description: Open ticket on Take
Condition: User Defined
Action: User Defined
Template: Blank
Stage: TransactionCreate

Custom Condition:

if ($self->TransactionObj->Type eq 'Take' and 
    $self->TicketObj->Status eq 'new') 
{
    return(1);
} else {
    return;
}

Custom Prep:

1;

Custom Cleanup:

$self->TicketObj->SetStatus("open");
1;
