json rt-api

This is a custom HTTP JSON API for RT. The service exposes a JSON API and uses the "rt" command line tool to control RT.

Build

Generally it might be a good idea to use rvm. However what you actually need is a working JRuby.

  • $ gem install bundler
  • $ bundle install
  • $ rake jar

Setup

  • On the RequestTracker server you simply run the jar file with java. Typically from an upstart job. An example upstart config is in contrib/init/json-rt-api.conf.

  • On the icinga / nagios side you hook into the global event handlers. Proper scripts are in the nagios-icinga directory.

RT Command Line Tool

Some usage hints can be found in the RT wiki.

Please see the following examples for the rt commands we need for the API.

Search

rt list -s "Subject LIKE 'Test' AND Status != 'resolved'" -q icinga

=> "18425: Test 1"

Search for unowned tickets

rt list -s "Subject LIKE 'Test' AND Status != 'resolved' AND Owner = 'Nobody'" -q icinga

=> "18425: Test 1"

Create

rt create -t ticket set subject="Test cli" queue="icinga" text="Test content"

=> "# Ticket 18427 created."

Comment

rt comment -m "This is a comment on 18427" 18427

=> "# Message recorded"

Retrieve owner of a ticket

rt show ticket/18427 -f owner,id

=> "# Owner: Nobody
    # id: ticket/18427"

Edit

rt edit 18427 set status=resolved

=> "# Ticket 18427 updated."
