Uninstalling ScripsActions

Hi,

I have just two questions for the week :wink:

  1. Other than using a long sql query (maybe), is there an easy/cleaner way to uninstall
    Scripactions?

  2. Does someone have a good HOWTO on “Escalator” script installation?
    I’ve read the thing but it doesn’t quite get in, and I’ve done that
    more than 10 times!

Thanks

    cheers

The escalator is not a scrip action thing like the other stuff. Basic
escalation functionality is already part of RT, but RT itself is not able
to do things on a scheduled basis. So, You have to call the escalator
script on a daily base using Your favorite cron daemon.

Hello Harald,

That explanation was quite helpful. I’d been wondering all along why an external
method had to be used.
However, one question still remains in my mind: How can the escalator help me
apart from showing that the priority has been changed on th web UI? I was thinking
in the lines of (say) in a situation where priority begins at 0, and with time
moves towards 10 over 10 days, I’d like to have the Admin Watcher notified when
priority is over 6. It means ticket is still unresolved, yes? Maybe this can be
done but I am by no means capable of coming up with something that can do it.

It again leaves me wondering - what is the expect effect of the escalator??

TIA

The escalator itself only counts up the priority, as You correctly assume.
Further action could be automated modifying the nag script (not only
checking for open ticket, but checking for open tickets having a certain
priority or higher). In addition, You can now search for tickets having a
certain priority on the search page, and the tickets on your ‘Home’ page are
sorted by priority as well, the ones with the highest priority right on top.

TIA

HTH,
