Subclause Aggregation with SearchBuilder

Hi,

This may be the wrong list for this, but it does seem to be relevant to
RT.

I’m trying to extract a list of Transactions on a ticket which are
either a status update, or a change to a specific customfield. Currently
I’m using this:

my $txs =$tkt->Transactions;
$txs->Limit(FIELD => “Type”,
VALUE => “Status”,
SUBCLAUSE => “status”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “Type”,
VALUE => “CustomField”,
SUBCLAUSE => “cf”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “ReferenceType”,
VALUE => “RT::ObjectCustomFieldValue”,
ENTRYAGGREGATOR => “AND”,
SUBCLAUSE => “cf”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “CustomField”,
VALUE => “4”,
ENTRYAGGREGATOR => “AND”,
SUBCLAUSE => “cf”);

Which gives me the following SQL:

SELECT DISTINCT main.*
FROM Transactions main
JOIN Tickets Tickets_1 ON ( Tickets_1.id = main.ObjectId )
WHERE (main.Type = ‘Status’)
AND (main.Type = ‘CustomField’
AND main.ReferenceType = ‘RT::ObjectCustomFieldValue’
AND main.CustomField = ‘4’)
AND (main.ObjectType = ‘RT::Ticket’)
AND (Tickets_1.EffectiveId = ‘6’)
ORDER BY main.Created ASC, main.id ASC

Which is not going to work at all, since there will never be a
transaction which matches both types. I’ve hit a brick wall on getting
to be:

SELECT DISTINCT main.*
FROM Transactions main
JOIN Tickets Tickets_1 ON ( Tickets_1.id = main.ObjectId )
WHERE (main.Type = ‘Status’)
OR (main.Type = ‘CustomField’
AND main.ReferenceType = ‘RT::ObjectCustomFieldValue’
AND main.CustomField = ‘4’)
AND (main.ObjectType = ‘RT::Ticket’)
AND (Tickets_1.EffectiveId = ‘6’)
ORDER BY main.Created ASC, main.id ASC

I’m sure there must be a way to do it, but no combination of
ENTRYAGGREGATOR parameters seems to be giving me the desired result.

Could somebody point me in the right direction please?

Thanks,

Subclause is the way to group multiple conditions with different
aggregators, something like:

my $txs =$tkt->Transactions;
$txs->Limit(FIELD => “Type”,
VALUE => “Status”,
SUBCLAUSE => “XXX”);

$txs->_OpenParen(“XXX”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “Type”,
VALUE => “CustomField”,
ENTRYAGGREGATOR => “OR”,
SUBCLAUSE => “XXX”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “ReferenceType”,
VALUE => “RT::ObjectCustomFieldValue”,
SUBCLAUSE => “XXX”);

$txs->Limit(FIELD => “CustomField”,
VALUE => “4”,
SUBCLAUSE => “XXX”);

$txs->_CloseParen(“XXX”);

I think it should work, but I have not tested.2009/2/17 Jon Wood jonathan.wood@uk.clara.net:

Best regards, Ruslan.

Using subclauses I’ve already got thing grouped correctly (the
Open/CloseParen calls aren’t neccesary), the problem is getting them
matched using OR instead of AND.

Thanks,
