This transaction appears to have no content -- on internal transactions

We’re getting this annoying message from RT all the time. For example, I
just replied to a ticket and CCd the requestor while changing the owner
(and the ticket auto-opens too).

From the history:
Tue Feb 14 13:29:40 2006 rickm - Correspondence added
Blah blah blah
Tue Feb 14 13:29:42 2006 RT_System - Outgoing email recorded
Tue Feb 14 13:29:42 2006 rickm - Status changed from ‘new’ to ‘open’
Tue Feb 14 13:29:42 2006 rickm - Given to craigb
Tue Feb 14 13:29:42 2006 RT_System - Outgoing email recorded

The system sent the requestor the reply I made (Blah blah blah), but the
new owner got a ticket that just says “This transaction appears to have
no content”

The template concerned is (AFAIK) the default transaction template. The
code that outputs this message is:
{$Transaction->Content()}
So I assume the ‘Transaction’ concerned is the ‘give’ rather than my
reply. Is there any way to get more useful transaction content? I’d
prefer it to at least have the same message as the ticket history "rickm

  • Given to craigb"

Cheers!

I created a custom template to use with OnOwnerChange as follows:Subject: {$Ticket->id} has been assigned to you

You have been assigned ticket #{$Ticket->id} by {
$Ticket->LastUpdatedByObj->Name }
Requestors: {$Ticket->RequestorAddresses}
Subject: {$Transaction->Subject || $Ticket->Subject || “(No subject given)”}

The ticket was initially created with the following data:
{ $Ticket->Transactions->First->Content; }
{$RT::WebURL}Ticket/Display.html?id={$Ticket->id}

That should give you all the info you needed and then some.

Thanks Drew!
I’ve taken your suggestion as inspiration and come up with the following
template. It gives the new owner the original request, and also the
latest update to the ticket (which probably helps the recipient work out
WHY it got assigned to them). Next task is to wrap the whole ‘latest
update’ part in an ‘if’ to make sure there’s been at least one
transaction that isn’t the first.

RT-Attach-Message: yes

{$Transaction->CreatedAsString}: Request {$Ticket->id} was acted upon.

Status: {$Ticket->Status}
Ticket <URL: {$RT::WebURL}Ticket/Display.html?id={$Ticket->id} >

This ticket has been assigned to you by {$Transaction->CreatorObj->Name}

The original request:

The latest update:
{ my @trans = reverse @{ $Ticket->Transactions->ItemsArrayRef }; my
$x=0; while((!$trans[$x]->ContentObj) or ($trans[$x]->CreatorObj->Name
eq ‘RT_System’)){ $x++ }; $trans[$x]->Content }
