    subject => $subject,
  )->store(text => "This is the initial text of the ticket");
  print "Created a new ticket, ID ", $ticket->id, "\n";

  # Update
  my $ticket = RT::Client::REST::Ticket->new(
    rt  => $rt,
    id  => $id,

  )->store;

  # Retrieve
  my $ticket => RT::Client::REST::Ticket->new(

  }

DESCRIPTION

RT::Client::REST::Ticket is based on RT::Client::REST::Object. The representation allows one to retrieve, edit, comment on, and create tickets in RT.

ATTRIBUTES

id

This is the numeric ID of the ticket.

queue

This is the name of the queue (not numeric id).

owner

Username of the owner.

creator

Username of RT user who created the ticket.

subject

Subject of the ticket.

status

The status is usually one of the following: "new", "open", "resolved", "stalled", "rejected", and "deleted". However, custom RT installations sometimes add their own statuses.

priority

Ticket priority. Usually a numeric value.

initial_priority
final_priority
requestor

This is the attribute for setting the requestor on ticket creation. If you use requestors to do this in 3.8, the recipient may not receive an autoreply from RT because the ticket is initially created as the user your REST session is connected as.

It is a list attribute (for explanation of list attributes, see LIST ATTRIBUTE PROPERTIES in RT::Client::REST::Object).

This contains e-mail addresses of the requestors.

It is a list attribute (for explanation of list attributes, see LIST ATTRIBUTE PROPERTIES in RT::Client::REST::Object).

cc

A list of e-mail addresses used to notify people of 'correspond' actions.

admin_cc

starts
started
due
resolved
told
time_estimated
time_worked
time_left
last_updated

Attributes storing a time

The attributes which store a time stamp have an additional accessor with the suffix _datetime (eg., resolved_datetime). This allows you can get and set the stored value as a DateTime object. Internally, it is converted into the date-time string which RT uses, which is assumed to be in UTC.

DB METHODS

For full explanation of these, please see "DB METHODS" in RT::Client::REST::Object documentation.

retrieve

Retrieve RT ticket from database.

store ([text => $text])

Create or update the ticket. When creating a new ticket, optional 'text' parameter can be supplied to set the initial text of the ticket.

Search for tickets that meet specific conditions.

TICKET-SPECIFIC METHODS

correspond (message => $message, %opts)

attachments

transactions

Get transactions associated with this ticket. Optionally, you can specify exactly what types of transactions you want listed, for example:

  my $result = $ticket->transactions(type => [qw(Comment Correspond)]);

Please reference RT::Client::REST documentation for the full list of valid transaction types.

Return value is an object of type RT::Client::REST::SearchResult which can then be used to iterate over transaction objects (RT::Client::REST::Transaction).

take

untake

Untake this ticket. If Nobody is already the owner of this ticket, RT::Client::REST::Object::NoopOperationException will be thrown.

steal

CUSTOM FIELDS

This class inherits 'cf' method from RT::Client::REST::Object. To create a ticket with a bunch of custom fields, use the following approach:

  RT::Client::REST::Ticket->new(
    rt => $rt,
    # blah blah
    cf => {
      'field one' => $value1,
      'field two' => $another_value,
    },
  )->store;

Some more examples:

  # Update a custom field value:
  $ticket->cf('field one' => $value1);
  $ticket->store;

  # Get a custom field value:
  my $another value = $ticket->cf('field two');

  # Get a list of ticket's custom field names:
  my @custom_fields = $ticket->cf;

INTERNAL METHODS

rt_type

Returns 'ticket'.
