Manage Scheduled Ticket logging with KACE SMA ServiceDesk

Have you ever wanted to get a ticket logged every Tuesday to remind you to carry out a certain task? j8H5URsEESAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC

Or perhaps once a month you need to get a ticket logged so you can spend a couple of hours doing a set task to which you must allocate time via a ticket?

It used to be that to get a ticket logged within KACE, on any kind of schedule you had to use the reports schedule wizard, set it up to run a blank report, that would fire an incoming email into your ServiceDesk, and that in turn would create a ticket.

Nothing wrong with that, but you then had to do some pretty nifty code to turn a blank ticket into something that was useable.

At Indigo Mountain we have tackled the issue in a different way and wondered if any KACE users out there had the same requirements and would find this useful. How did we achieve this??

In short we create a second Queue, that queue is customized to hold basic ticket details such as what, when and who, marked with a status to say if it is active or not.

We then wrote some pretty fancy rules so that you are able to email your main support queue:

  • Everyday
  • Every individual day, say every Wednesday
  • or The second Tuesday of the month as an example
