Version 7 woes

Post by nasamang »

We've upgraded to version 7 (OTRS upgraded it for us) and have had many issues as a result.

Right now, we get 5 admin error notifications per minute stating (literally every minute):

The error:
There was an error executing Execute() in Kernel::System::Console::Command::Maint::DocumentSearch::IndexWorker: Error: Can't use an undefined value as a SCALAR reference at /opt/otrs-7.0.6/Kernel/System/ITSMChange/ line 2664.

Its been months and OTRS devs dont have any answers, so I am taking this to the forums to see if anyone has some suggestions to whats wrong.

I compared the source of to github, and its up to date.. there has to be some other incompatibility happening..

Any ideas where we should look next?

This forum is ((OTRS)) Community Edition related, I don't think you can expect many responses.

If you have the same code as it's available at Github you have the ITSM package for OTRS 6. I can't find there a version for 7.

Please contact servicedesk to get the Bug escalated. Might be

Also you should update to the latest patchlevel of OTRS 7 as 7.0.6 is outdated and there were several fixes including security fixes.

Also I suggest to switch to the process management engine for change management as it is more flexible
"Production": OTRS™ 7, STORM powered by OTRS
"Testing": ((OTRS Community Edition)) and git Master
