- rP524686: RT extension that repeats tickets based on a schedule
Thanks very much for creating the port.
This extension normally requires running "make initdb" to create a custom field called Original Ticket. The port currently doesn't provide an easy way to do that, and I'm really not sure how it could do so elegantly. I managed to do so by running "make -n initdb" in the port wrkdir, then doing likewise on our production server where we'd installed the package:
XXXX:/usr/local/share/rt42/plugins/RT-Extension-RepeatTicket# /usr/local/bin/perl -Ilib -I/usr/local/share/rt42/lib -I/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl -I. /usr/local/sbin/rt-setup-database --action insert --datadir etc --datafile etc/initialdata --dba root --prompt-for-dba-password --package RT::Extension::RepeatTicket --ext-version 1.11 In order to create or update your RT database, this script needs to connect to your mysql instance on localhost (port '') as root Please specify that user's database password below. If the user has no database password, just press return. Password: Working with: Type: mysql Host: localhost Port: Name: XXXX User: XXXX DBA: root Now inserting data. Done inserting data. Done.
I see. If there's any documentation that says that, it would seem to be fairly well hidden. I'll add a pkg-message to warn the users and see if I can include all the necessary files in the package.
Yeah, the requirement is mentioned in the documentation.
Everything one needs is being packaged already; you just need to know exactly how to invoke /usr/local/sbin/rt-setup-database.
