Sounds like custom fields to me.

Subject: [rt-users] form-workflow during ticket creation

hello folks,

I'm new to RT.

I'd like to set up ticket creation such that tables in an independent
database (postgresql) can be used to force choices in some fields/menus,
perhaps display information in other fields.


my company offers products Product-A, Product-B, Product-C.

Product-A has versions "2.11p3", "2.13", "3.0", etc.
Product-B has versions "b56-03", "b56-04", "b57-01" etc.

I'd like a drop-down menu where ticket creator must choose "Product-A", 
"Product-B", etc. After she has chosen the applicable product, I'd like
drop-down menu with the appropriate versions for that product.

I've done a bit of research and it isn't clear to me if this is
possible, or if 
it is, what RT mechanisms could be used to implement it.

Is it possible?  If yes, I would be grateful for some pointers to 
examples/howtos or other tips on how to proceed.

I can imagine that the above could be *relative* simple to implement. I
imagine a somewhat trickier scenario, though, in which the ticket
creator has to 
supply a license-ID in a field, after which the menus above (product,
would be dynamically populated after a DB lookup to determine what
and/or versions were linked to that particular license-ID.  Is *that*
  (well, without getting into nitty-gritty AJAX programming?)
