NAME

RTx-RemoteLinks - Conveniently create links to ticket IDs in other RT instances

DESCRIPTION

With a small amount of configuration, this extension lets you enter new ticket links as foo:123 which are then displayed in the Links box as "Foo ticket #123" with a link to the remote RT instance.

Currently remote ticket subjects are not fetched due to authentication complications, but this could be added in the future.

CONFIGURATION

    Set(%RemoteLinks,
        Foo => 'example.com',               # assumes http:// and RT at the top-level path
        Bar => 'https://example.net/rt',    # specifies https and a subpath for RT
    );

Prefixes are case insensitive, so both "Foo" and "foo" and "fOo" will work.

Once you create links in the system using a prefix, you should leave it configured.

Make sure to add this plugin to @Plugins as well, as described in "INSTALLATION".

INSTALLATION

perl Makefile.PL
make
make install

May need root permissions

Edit your /opt/rt5/etc/RT_SiteConfig.pm

If you are using RT 4.2 or greater, add this line:

    Set(@Plugins, qw(RTx::RemoteLinks));

or add RTx::RemoteLinks to your existing @Plugins line.
