  • FastCGI issue with Nginx on Rocky Linux 9
    I am in the process of setting up Request Tracker on Rocky 9.1. I am using Nginx as my web server. I need to use FastCGI to hand off the web requests from the Nginx frontend to the RT Perl backend via FastCGI. I have followed the manual install instructions on the RT wiki to do this however it does not work. Nginx is complaining there is no FastCGI server to connect to. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago

  • Looking for selfhosted software for tracking repairs at a repair shop and interfacing them with a customer (i.e. ticketing software).
    You can adapt Request Tracker to do this, both in terms of how information is presented to the customer, and how the process flows (i.e. Between intake, repair, notifications, pickup/shipping). - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago

  • My Journey to Open-Source Development
    When I started, Roundup was still very new. I started developing my customized tracker to learn Python and experiment with Roundup. My tracker implemented several ideas from Request Tracker (RT). I developed the key components, replies/comments, dependencies, and grouping (parent/child), in less than 40 hours of effort over a few weeks. Roundup's implementation and documentation made building these significant... - Source: / 8 months ago

  • Who else thinks ServiceNow SUCKS?
    I built/deployed Request Tracker at a couple previous jobs, so I know the kind of effort that goes into making a ticketing system work the way you need it to. They're almost never an out of the box solution. - Source: Reddit / 11 months ago

  • I'm searching for an easy way of setting up a minimalistic ticketing system
    We used this about 15 years ago: We didn't use the web interface at all, but had an email address (like [email protected]) that went into RT via qmail. The customer service reps (we had about 5 at the time) used the RT web interface. Once a CS rep took a ticket, all of the back and forth messaging was automatically routed to them via a tag in the subject line. You could... - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago

    Request Tracker is great. I've been using it for years. Very customisable. - Source: Reddit / over 1 year ago
  • Just designed the most evil UI component: x box – the inverse of the check box
    You see this a lot in the RT ticket system[1]. For example, when adding a reply to a ticket, emails are sent to a set of people by default. The addreses are listed, with checkboxes, and a parenthetical Check boxes to disable notifications to the listed recipients [1] - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
