[rt-users] Change CF with HTTP

Hi Vinzenz,

thanks so far - I'm not sure if this will work for me.
So let me explain my whole problem, maybe you have a better solution to reach help me.

I have a fax-server wich sends faxes as mail into RT. So the mails are always with the same content and attached there is a PDF-file with the fax-document.
I have one custom field for my queue called "category"
Our staff need to sort the fax-tickets into different categories, using this custom field. (so this team only sorts the tickets - once the ticket is sorted into the category, it will appear in another team to work on the ticket)
In the moment, the "sorting staff" have to open one ticket after another, open the attached pdf-file, change the CF-value and go to the next ticket.
So the colleagues asked me for an easier way.


My idea was the following:
I create one search for all the unsorted faxes. As format I define like the following:
<ticket-ID>,<ticketSubject>,<requestor>,<categoryA>,<categoryB>,...
On the column "CategoryA" there should be a link to change custom field of this ticket to cagetory A, same for the other categories.
The "high-end-solution" would be also to have directly a link to the attached PDF-file from the search - but I don't belive this is possible.


do you think this way will be working? Or do you have another solution for my problem?


Best regards
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,

AFAIK you currently can't update tickets with querystrings<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Query_string>. For the REST-API you need to put key-value-pairs in the body of a POST Request<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/POST_(HTTP)>.

You can do this with javascript, here is a function I use in our Instance to update the priority of a ticket. You can use this to build something similar and attach it to a button or something similar.

function set_ticket_prio(priority, ticket_id){
                url = "https://ticketserver/rt/REST/1.0/ticket/__id__/edit".replace('__id__', ticket_id);
                data = 'content=Priority: __prio__'.replace('__prio__', priority);
                jQuery.ajax({type:"POST", url:url, data:data, success: refresh_table});
}

Cheers,
Vinzenz

Hi Vinzenz,

Thanks, but I'm not sure how to do this.

I think I have a URL like this:
http://<ticketserver>/REST/1.0/ticket/<ticketno>/edit<http://%3cticketserver%3e/REST/1.0/ticket/%3cticketno%3e/edit>.....

but how do I change a CF?

I already tried
http://<ticketserver>/REST/1.0/ticket/<ticketno>/edit?CF.{<CFname>}:<CFvalue<http://%3cticketserver%3e/REST/1.0/ticket/%3cticketno%3e/edit?CF.%7b%3cCFname%3e%7d:%3cCFvalue>>

and
http://<ticketserver>/REST/1.0/ticket/<ticketno>/edit?CF.{<CFname>}=<CFvalue<http://%3cticketserver%3e/REST/1.0/ticket/%3cticketno%3e/edit?CF.%7b%3cCFname%3e%7d=%3cCFvalue>>

both didn't work.

Just to make sure what I want:
I need one URL where a user can click and with opening this URL a CF value is changed.
Will this work with REST?


Best regards
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,

You can use wget/curl and the REST-API: http://requesttracker.wikia.com/wiki/REST

Betreff: [rt-users] Change CF with HTTP

Hello,

is it possible to change a CF with a http command like
http://$ipaddress/rt/Modify.html?id=<ticketno>;CF=<customfield-ID>;CFval=<customfield-value<http://$ipaddress/rt/Modify.html?id=%3cticketno%3e;CF=%3ccustomfield-ID%3e;CFval=%3ccustomfield-value>>
?

Thank you in advice

Best regards
Bernhard
