Event Notification on EscalationTimeStart

Post by Daniel Obee »

Hi folks,

I tried to get notifications on EscalationResponseTimeStart and similar escalation events but somehow it won't send anything.

The system runs an OTRS 3.2.3 (I know it's outdated), so maybe there's a known bug or such.

Anyone can give me a hint on what possible has gone wrong?

Did you activate the cronjob?

This can be found in Kernel/Config/GenericAgent.pm

Code: Select all

#   'send escalation notifications' => {
#       Escalation => 1,
#       # new ticket properties
#       New => {
#           Module => 'Kernel::System::GenericAgent::NotifyAgentGroupOfCustomQueue',
#       },
#   },
Just remove the "#". And check if the cronjobs run the GenericAgent.

Shouldn't the event be triggered without an additional cron job? Escalations themselves are running, just the event doesn't seem to trigger the event notification.

Okay, seems I gotta do this.

The system in question is a hosted one so I cannot simply alter files. I would therefor wrap the altered GenericAgent.pm in an opm package and upload it. Is there any cause not to overwrite the file with a package?
