Ticket Event Module

Ticket event modules are running right after a ticket action takes place. Per convention these modules are located in the directory Kernel/System/Ticket/Event. A ticket event module needs only two functions: new() and Run(). The method Run() receives at least the parameters Event, UserID and Data. Data is a hash ref containing data of the ticket, and in case of article related events also containing article data.

Ticket Event Module Code Example

See Kernel/System/Ticket/Event/EventModulePostTemplate.pm in the package TemplateModule.

Ticket Event Module Configuration Example

See Kernel/Config/Files/EventModulePostTemplate.xml in the package TemplateModule.

Ticket Event Module Use Case Example

A ticket should be unlocked after a move action
This standard feature has been implemented with the ticket event module Kernel::System::Ticket::Event::ForceUnlock. When this feature is not wanted, then it can be turned off by unsetting the system configuraton entry Ticket::EventModulePost###910-ForceUnlockOnMove.
Perform extra cleanup action when a ticket is deleted
A customized OTRS might hold non-standard data in additional database tables. When a ticket is deleted then this additional data needs to be deleted. This functionality can be achieved with a ticket event module listening to TicketDelete events.
New tickets should be twittered
A ticket event module listening to TicketCreate can send out tweets.
