[rt-users] Permissions by custom field

	I'm a bit confused. Your subject line mentions permissions and I don't 
see that question here. As to Custom Fields, what is the correlation 
between customer and company? Normally, I would think it was  one to 
one. However, if you are creating tickets for someone else, you can 
modify the "Requestor" to be the customer and not you. You will still be 
the "creator". Then, you can have a CF that is the company.
	Permissions would be simpler. You could grant the right to "ShowTicket" 
Globally to the "Requestor" role and that would keep your "customer" 
from seeing other "customer (Requestor)" tickets. Then you merely go to 
your Custom Field and apply it to the support queue and then go to 
"Group Rights" and grant "SeeCustomField" to Privileged. That way all 
privileged users will be able to see that field as well as the ticket in 
a queue they are privileged to access. Hope this helps.
