NAME ^

RT::Extension::StallFutureTicket - Stall a new ticket automatically when start time is set to a future date

DESCRIPTION ^

This RT Extension allows to automatically stall created tickets with a start time in the future.

INSTALLATION ^

This extension based on the following modules:

    RT >= 4.0.0
    Date::Manip >= 6.25

To install this extension, run the following commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make
    make test
    make install

CONFIGURATION ^

RT SITE CONFIGURATION

To enable this extension edit the RT site configuration located in $RT_HOME/etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm (where $RT_HOME is the path to your RT installation):

    Set(@Plugins,qw(RT::Extension::StallFutureTicket));

You must allow to set new tickets to stalled:

    Set(%Lifecycles,
        default => {

            [...]

            transitions => {
                ''       => [qw(new open resolved stalled)],
                [...]
            }
            [...]
        }
    );

This is just an abbreviation taken from RT's main configuration file under $RT_HOME/etc/RT_Config.pm. Note the added stalled.

To overwrite Date::Manip's default configuration you may set the following:

    Set(%DateManipConfig, (
        'WorkDayBeg', '9:00',
        'WorkDayEnd', '17:00', 
        #'WorkDay24Hr', '0',
        #'WorkWeekBeg', '1',
        #'WorkWeekEnd', '7'
    ));

You can find more information about the configurable parameters under http://search.cpan.org/dist/Date-Manip/lib/Date/Manip/Config.pod#BUSINESS_CONFIGURATION_VARIABLES.

After all your new configuration will take effect after restarting your RT environment:

    rm -rf $RT_HOME/var/mason_data/obj/* && service apache2 restart

This is an example for deleting the mason cache and restarting the Apache HTTP web server on a Debian GNU/Linux based operating system.
