[rt-users] Ticket Links missing post upgrade/conversion to Oracle 4.2.11.

Aaron,

Thank you for your suggestion! I had the technical team run RT-Validator with links-only. This fixed the links in the “Refers to” category, but did not fix the tickets in the “Referred to by:” category. We next ran RT Validator with –check—resolve—force and it did not resolve the “Referred to by:” category.

Looking at the output from the RT-Validator run, we received a lot of errors.

23159 reports of “Record #123456 in Transactions. Value of NewValue column most probably is an incorrect link”
176 reports of “Record #1234567 in Transactions. Value of OldValue column most probably is an incorrect link”
20275 reports of “Record #12345 in Links. Value of Target column most probably is an incorrect link”
20323 reports of   “Record #12345 in Links. Value of Base column most probably is an incorrect link”

A little bit of this:

A little bit of that:

Record #3042 in ObjectCustomFieldValues references a nonexistent record in Articles
            ObjectId => '8' => id

The entire output is around 2580 pages.

Prior to the upgrade (with all the links working), I printed off the System Configuration webpage. I just double checked and our Organization was ‘abc.com’ . In our system configuration after the upgrade(with broken links), the organization is ‘abc.com’.

Would having the app down effect the RT-Validator? My technical team did not take Request Tracker down during the process and they were wondering if this could make a difference. Is there anything else we can do or check?

Thank you for your time and support.

Sincerely,
Greg

Hi Greg,
This certainly sounds like a mismatch as Maik suggested.   This happens when I refresh my test/dev instance of RT from production also.
I then run the rt-validator over the database and this corrects all the mismatched links.  This is needed as I use the server hostname as the Organization and this does differ between environments.
I simply import the database and then execute /opt/rt4/sbin/rt-validator --check --resolve --force
Once that is completed all ticket links are working again.

Regards,

Aaron Guise

Good morning, Maik.

My technical team checked our production RT and found the $organization variable. It appeared to be correct, however, they were unsure what you meant when you said (It must fit to the values of field "base" and "target" in table "links").

Can you provide more directions on what you meant? The more specific you can be, the better it would be for my non-Request Tracker DBA's.

Some additional information: we have a stage server that is currently running the same version of request tracker (4.2.11 Oracle). It is a copy of our production database from a few months ago. It is showing the ticket links and has the same $Organization variable as the production account.

Thanks for the help!
Greg

Hey Greg,

please check if your $Organization variable is set in RT_SiteConfig.pm
It must fit to the values of field "base" and "target" in table "links"

If your code snipped is correct then
Set( $Organization, 'example.com<http://example.com>' );
