Can you create custom ticket rules to pull custom fields from parent ticket dynamically?
09/12/2016 1291 views
I'm attempting to create a custom ticket rule that pulls fields from the parent ticket based upon it's queue.
If the parent is in queue 1 and creates children in queues 3 and 4, I'd like the child in queue 3 to pull Custom Field Value 1 and the child in queue 4 to pull Custom Field Value 2. But, If the parent is in queue 2 and creates the same children I'd like the child in queue 3 to pull Custom Field Value 3 and the child in queue 4 to pull Custom Field Value 4.
I'm thinking that I could convert the parent ticket title to string and then match a custom variable to a string value and set the rule to run when the string value matches the set custom variable. Using 2 rules set for 2 custom string variables I could then set the child tickets to only pull certain values based on ticket title.
Any KACE experts who might be able to point me in the right direction?

Rules are queue specific when the select tickets, so create a rule in queue 1 that will update tickets which match given criteria and update their children (regardless of their queue, just based on ticket number). You would have a similar rule in queue 2 that updates the children from that queue.
