I have a rule to send details of a ticket to technicians when a ticket gets created.The problem is that when they clsoe the ticket it also matches the WHERE clause and sends them another email saying that the ticket has been opened even though it hasn't. Is there a better way to email the ticket owner more details when a ticket gets assigned to them?

Here is the query:

SELECT

      -- ticket fields
      HD_TICKET.ID, -- $id
      HD_TICKET.ID AS TICKNUM, -- $ticknum
      HD_TICKET.TITLE, -- $title
      DATE_FORMAT(HD_TICKET.CREATED,'%b %d %Y %I:%i:%s %p') AS CREATED, -- $created
      DATE_FORMAT(HD_TICKET.MODIFIED,'%b %d %Y %I:%i:%s %p') AS MODIFIED, -- $modified
    
      -- change fields
      C.COMMENT, -- $comment
      C.DESCRIPTION, -- $description
      GROUP_CONCAT(CONCAT('----- Change by ', UPDATER.EMAIL,' at ',H.TIMESTAMP,' -----\n',
       H.DESCRIPTION,'\n',H.COMMENT,'\n\nPlease see your ticket at http://kbox.wacoisd.org/userui/ticket.php?ID=',H.HD_TICKET_ID,'\n')
       ORDER BY H.ID DESC SEPARATOR '\n') HISTORY, -- $history
    
    
      -- about the updater
      UPDATER.USER_NAME AS UPDATER_UNAME, -- $updater_uname
      UPDATER.FULL_NAME AS UPDATER_FNAME, -- $updater_fname
      UPDATER.EMAIL AS UPDATER_EMAIL,     -- $updater_email
      IF(UPDATER.FULL_NAME='',UPDATER.USER_NAME,UPDATER.FULL_NAME) AS UPDATER_CONDITIONAL, -- $updater_conditional
    
      -- about the owner
      OWNER.USER_NAME AS OWNER_UNAME, -- $owner_uname

    FROM HD_TICKET
     /* latest change ***/ JOIN HD_TICKET_CHANGE C ON C.HD_TICKET_ID = HD_TICKET.ID
                            /*AND C.ID=<CHANGE_ID>*/

Well, I answered my own question in case someone else has the same problem. For the rule to email ticket owners I changed the WHERE statement to this:

     C.DESCRIPTION LIKE 'Changed ticket Owner%'
OR (C.DESCRIPTION LIKE 'Ticket Created%' AND S.NAME NOT LIKE "Closed%")

A similar rule emails users on ticket creation and had the same problem of resending the email when the ticket was closed. In that case I just left out the first statement C.DESCRIPTION LIKE 'Changed ticket Owner%'.
