I've created a process workflow for purchasing new equipment. I'm trying to create a custom ticket rule that will email a predefined Approver when a particular child ticket's status changes to "Approval Pending".  I've made several unsuccessful attempts and I'm looking for all the help I can get.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Is the approver listed on the child ticket or on the parent?

  • the child ticket
  • Did you get this working? or are there any updates?
  • I did...I created the following Ticket Rule for the queue containing the process.

    ***SELECT QUERY***

    select HD_TICKET.*,
    HD_STATUS.NAME AS STATUS_NAME,
    HD_STATUS.ORDINAL as STATUS_ORDINAL,
    HD_IMPACT.ORDINAL as IMPACT_ORDINAL,
    HD_CATEGORY.ORDINAL as CATEGORY_ORDINAL,
    HD_PRIORITY.ORDINAL as PRIORITY_NUMBER,
    STATE,
    if((datediff(DUE_DATE, now()) = 0), 2, if((datediff(DUE_DATE, now())<0), 1, 3)) as SORT_OVERDUE_STATUS,
    if(unix_timestamp(TIME_OPENED) > 0, TIME_OPENED, 1<<62) as SORT_TIME_OPENED,
    if(unix_timestamp(TIME_STALLED) > 0, TIME_STALLED, 1<<62) as SORT_TIME_STALLED,
    if(unix_timestamp(TIME_CLOSED) > 0, TIME_CLOSED, 1<<62) as SORT_TIME_CLOSED,
    if(unix_timestamp(ESCALATED) > 0, ESCALATED, 1<<62) as SORT_ESCALATED,
    if(unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.CREATED) > 0, HD_TICKET.CREATED, 1<<62) as SORT_TIME_CREATED,
    if(unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.MODIFIED) > 0, HD_TICKET.MODIFIED, 1<<62) as SORT_MODIFIED,
    if(unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.DUE_DATE) > 0, HD_TICKET.DUE_DATE, 1<<62) as SORT_DUE_DATE,
    case upper(STATE)
    when 'CLOSED' then unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.TIME_CLOSED) - unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.TIME_OPENED)
    when 'OPENED' then unix_timestamp(NOW()) - unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.TIME_OPENED)
    else unix_timestamp(NOW()) - unix_timestamp(HD_TICKET.CREATED) end as AGE,
    if ((LENGTH(U1.FULL_NAME) = 0), U1.USER_NAME, U1.FULL_NAME) as OWNER_NAME,
    U1.FULL_NAME as OWNER_FULLNAME,
    U1.EMAIL as OWNER_EMAIL,
    if (U1.ID is null, 'z', concat('a', if ((LENGTH(U1.FULL_NAME) = 0), U1.USER_NAME, U1.FULL_NAME))) as SORT_OWNER_NAME,
    if ((LENGTH(U3.FULL_NAME) = 0), U3.USER_NAME, U3.FULL_NAME) as
    APPROVER_NAME,
    U3.FULL_NAME as APPROVER_FULLNAME,
    U3.EMAIL as APPROVER_EMAIL,
    if (U3.ID is null, 'z', concat('a', if ((LENGTH(U3.FULL_NAME) = 0), U3.USER_NAME, U3.FULL_NAME))) as SORT_APPROVER_NAME,
    if(APPROVAL='rejected', 'Rejected', if(APPROVAL='info', 'More Info Needed', if(APPROVAL='approved', 'Approved', if(APPROVER_ID>0, 'Pending', '')))) as APPROVAL_STATUS,
    Q.NAME as QUEUE_NAME
    from (HD_TICKET, HD_PRIORITY, HD_STATUS, HD_IMPACT, HD_CATEGORY)
    LEFT JOIN USER U1 on U1.ID = HD_TICKET.OWNER_ID
    LEFT JOIN USER U2 on U2.ID = HD_TICKET.SUBMITTER_ID
    LEFT JOIN USER U3 on U3.ID = HD_TICKET.APPROVER_ID
    LEFT JOIN HD_QUEUE Q on Q.ID = HD_TICKET.HD_QUEUE_ID
    LEFT JOIN MACHINE M1 on M1.ID = HD_TICKET.MACHINE_ID
    where HD_PRIORITY.ID = HD_PRIORITY_ID

    and HD_IMPACT.ID = HD_IMPACT_ID
    and HD_CATEGORY.ID = HD_CATEGORY_ID
    and (( HD_STATUS.NAME = 'Approval Pending') and HD_TICKET.HD_QUEUE_ID = 1 )
