Colorize ticket links based on status or, as in one example below, by priority.

RT 3.8.2 Edit

Simple Edit

Below is a modified local/html/Elements/ShowLink. It will display inter-ticket links colored to match the status of the ticket with the same color scheme used in graphs, via inline CSS. --Jerrad

<a href="<%$URI->Resolver->HREF%>">
   % if ($URI->IsLocal) {
   % my $member = $URI->Object;
   % if (UNIVERSAL::isa($member, "RT::Ticket")) {
   
   #Customization
   <%perl>
   require RT::Graph::Tickets;
   my $status = $member->Status;
   my $class  = $member->QueueObj->IsInactiveStatus($status)?'ticket-inactive':'';
   my $color  = $RT::Graph::Tickets::ticket_status_style{$status}->{'fontcolor'};
   </%perl>
   <span class="<% $class %>" style="color: <% $color %>">
   
   <%$member->Id%>: (<%$member->OwnerObj->Name%>) <%$member->Subject%> [<% loc($member->Status) %>]
   </span>
   
   % } elsif ( UNIVERSAL::can($member, 'Name')) {
   <%$URI->Resolver->AsString%>: <%$member->Name%>
   % } else {
   <%$URI->Resolver->AsString%>
   % }
   % } else {
   <%$URI->Resolver->AsString%>
   % }
   </a>

Full-featured Edit

by Dan Cook, updated with CSS callback dox by Matt Zagrabelny

This is how I've set things up. I have shamelessly robbed most of this from the posts above (Thanks Guys!).

(And Baylink, in turn, moved it to the top; if you're running older code, read on down. In particular, I modified the Colored-Priority code to use inline styles and reverse out the color into the background a bit further down.)

You can do that, in Linux, by typing

  1. mkdir -p local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Elements/RT__Ticket/ColumnMap

from your RT installation directory, which is /opt/rt3 unless someone built it differently.

  • Note: There are 2 underscores between RT and Ticket

Then you can

  1. cd local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Elements/RT__Ticket/ColumnMap

to create the file, which is also named ColumnMap, and should contain this:


8<-----------------------------8<----------

<%INIT>

sub statusInColor {
   my $Ticket = shift;
   my $status = $Ticket->Status;
   my $css = "status" . lc $status;
   my $LastUpdater = $Ticket->LastUpdatedByObj->EmailAddress;
   my $TicketRequestors = $Ticket->Requestors->MemberEmailAddressesAsString;
   my $TicketCC = $Ticket->Cc->MemberEmailAddressesAsString;

   if (($TicketRequestors =~ $LastUpdater) || ($TicketCC =~ $LastUpdater))
   {
       $css = "status" . lc "reply";
       $status = "<div class=\"$css\">$status REP</div>";
   }
   else {
       $status = "<div class=\"$css\">$status</div>";
   }

   return \"$status";
}


$COLUMN_MAP->{Status}->{value} = \&statusInColor;

</%INIT>
<%ARGS>
$COLUMN_MAP => undef
</%ARGS>

8<-----------------------------8<----------

  • Onto the next part...
  • RT 3.8 and up use a different CSS theme. Web2 is the default theme.
  • If you use other themes you will need to do the following steps for each theme you use.
  • Create the directory: <RTInstallationDir>/local/html/Callbacks/<SiteCallbacks>/NoAuth/css/web2/main.css
  • Create the file: <RTInstallationDir>/local/html/Callbacks/<SiteCallbacks>/NoAuth/css/web2/main.css/End

And in that file, put:

@import "statuscolor.css";

  • In the directory just created '<RTInstallationDir>/local/html/NoAuth/css/web2' you will need to create a new file.
  • Name the file statuscolor.css and place the following content in it.
/* Status Colours */

.statusnew {
 color: #bb0000;
 text-align: left;
 font-weight: bold;
}

.statusopen {
 color: #0000bb;
 text-align: left;
 font-weight: bold;
}

.statusreply {
 color: #00bb00;
 text-align: left;
 font-weight: bold;
}

.statusresolved {
 color: #888888;
 text-align: left;
 font-weight: bold;
}

.statusrejected {
 color: #884444;
 text-align: left;
 font-weight: bold;
}
  • Don't forget to clear your Mason cache (apache restart, unless you've enabled $DevelMode in RT_SiteConfig.pm) and perform a "hard" refresh in your browser (Shift + Ctrl + R) to clear your local CSS cache.

So basically what you will get from the above is the status' listed in the statuscolor.css file will be colored. You may edit the statuscolor.css file to suit your needs. Just make sure you follow the convention of the file format i.e. to color status stalled you would use something like:

.statusstalled {

color: #884422;
text-align: left;
font-weight: bold;

}

and so on so forth. Next thing to note is that along with coloring the status this also puts an REP flag next to any tickets where the last reply is by the requestor or cc (i.e. not the staff) (Thanks Johan Baarman !)


RT 3.8.x/4.0.x Edit

Full featured ColumnMap script Edit

by Alex Young

Confirmed working with 3.8.2, 3.8.6, 3.8.8.

Confirmed working with 4.0.x, but ColumnMap file is renamed to Once, and web2 location is changed to aileron.

I have combined the scripts on this wiki page to work in 3.8.x/4.0.x, so thanks to all the people that did all the hard work! Only the ColumnMap file is different from the other guides on this page.

Changes from the other scripts

  • Changes REP flag to New Reply.
  • Doesn't display New Reply when the current user is the last to comment.
  • New Reply tag is displayed in its own colour, while keeping the default status colours.
  • New Reply tag links to the last unread message and can mark the messages as read.
  • New Reply tag isn't displayed if there are no unread messages.
  • Changed colours for Priorities. Removed light colours that prevented the text from being easily read on a white background.
  • Updated Extended Status code to display number of pending tickets.

This uses a similar statuscolor.css file found elsewhere on this page. Follow those instructions for setup, or use the following contents.

/* Status Colours */

.statusnew { color: #bb0000; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;} 
.statusopen { color: #0000bb; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;}
.statusreply { color: #009900; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;}
.statusresolved { color: #737373; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;} 
.statusrejected { color: #884444; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;}
.statusstalled { color: #884444; text-align: left; font-weight: bold;}


The files should map to your system like so:

<RTInstallationDir>/local/html/
`-- Callbacks
    `-- MyCallbacks
        |-- Elements
        |   `-- RT__Ticket
        |       `-- ColumnMap
        |           `-- ColumnMap|Once
        `-- NoAuth
            `-- css
                `-- web2|aileron
                    `-- main.css
                        `-- End
<RTInstallationDir>/local/html/
`-- NoAuth/
    `-- css
        `-- web2|aileron
            `-- statuscolor.css

Earlier forms Edit

(Baylink reads further down... wow. Everyone else already did this. :-)

Simply do the following:

Note: in debian the right path is /usr/local/share/request-tracker3.6/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Elements/RT__Ticket/ColumnMap/ColumnMap


<%INIT>

sub statusInColor {
   my $Ticket = shift;
   my $status = $Ticket->Status;
   my $color = undef;

   if ($status eq 'new') {

   } elsif ($status eq 'open') {
       $color = "#AA8000";
   } elsif ($status eq 'stalled') {
       $color = "#000090";
   } elsif ($status eq 'rejected') {
       $color = "#999999";
   } elsif ($status eq 'resolved') {
       $color = "009000";
   }

   $status = loc($status);

   if ( $Ticket->HasUnresolvedDependencies ) {
       $status = "<i>$status<i>"
   }

   if ($color) {
       $status = "<font color=$color>$status</font>"
   }

   return \"<b>$status</b>";
}

sub extStatusInColor {
   my $Ticket = shift;

   if ( $Ticket->HasUnresolvedDependencies ) {
       my $status;
       if ( $Ticket->HasUnresolvedDependencies( Type => 'approval' )
            or $Ticket->HasUnresolvedDependencies( Type => 'code' ) ) {

       }
       return \$status;

   }

Priority color Edit

by Riccardo Capecchi

My users wanted also the priority coloured in shade of red and yellow based on priority (red = big problem), i used the above code and added these lines to show a coloured field priority. You must add these lines with or without the above code into the file: <RTInstallationDir>/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Elements/RT__Ticket/ColumnMap/ColumnMap

edit: $priority is an integer, not a string. I've used >= operator instead of ge operator.


sub PriorityInColor {
  my $Ticket = shift;

  my $priority = $Ticket->Priority;
  my $colors = undef;

  if ($priority >= 90) {
      $colors = "#FF0000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 80) {
      $colors = "#FF2000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 70) {
      $colors = "#FF4000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 60) {
      $colors = "#FF6000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 50) {
      $colors = "#FF8000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 40) {
      $colors = "#FFA000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 30) {
      $colors = "#FFC000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 20) {
      $colors = "#FFE000";
  } elsif ($priority >= 10) {
      $colors = "#FFFF00";
  } elsif ($priority >= 0) {
      $colors = "009000";
  }

  if ($colors) {
      $priority = "<font style=\"color:black;background-color:$colors\">&nbsp;$priority&nbsp;</font>"
  }

  return \"<b>$priority</b>";
}
$COLUMN_MAP->{Priority}->{value} = \&PriorityInColor;

(This one also works in 3.8.2 as of 2009-Feb-12; I've modified it slightly to colorize the background, and also to use inline CSS instead of deprecated tags. If you use both, put this one inside the other one's %INIT tags. --Baylink)

Using CSS For Styling Edit

by Graham Briggs

As an alternative to the above, you might choose to use CSS to define styling of the Status field. I have the following setup:

In file $RT_HOME/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/Elements/RT__Ticket/ColumnMap/ColumnMap replace the above statusInColor method with the following:

sub statusInColor {
   my $Ticket = shift;
   my $status = $Ticket->Status;
   my $css = "status" . lc $status;
   $css =~ s/[\W]//g;

   if ( $Ticket->HasUnresolvedDependencies ) {
       $status = "<i>$status<i>";
   }

   $status = "<div class=\"$css\">$status</div>";

   return \"$status";
}

In file $RT_HOME/local/html/Callbacks/MyCallbacks/NoAuth/webrt.css/Default

/* Status Colours */

.statusnew {
  color: #bb0000;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
}

.statusopen {
  color: #0000bb;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
}

.statustesting {
  color: #00bb00;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
}

.statusresolved {
  color: #888888;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
}

.statusrejected {
  color: #884444;
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: bold;
}

RT 3.6.5 (and up?) Edit

Thanks Johan Baarman for the solution.

The problem with newer version is that the CSS file is not read from the directory mentioned above. Follow the steps below to solve it:

Create a directory $RT_HOME/local/html/NoAuth/css/3.5-default/ and copy $RT_HOME/share/html/NoAuth/css/3.5-default/main.css to it. Now edit the local main.css file and add the following line at the end: import "statuscolor.css"; Create a new local file $RT_HOME/local/html/NoAuth/css/3.5-default/statuscolor.css and populate it with the above css tags. I've also changed the .statustesting above to .statusreply in my statuscolor.css file in order to color replies.

In addition to coloring the status, the following alternative statusInColor function will set a "REP" flag for each status to indicate a ticket that had been updated by anyone else than the staff, i.e. requestor or any of the CCs, in case any of the users are colorblind.

sub statusInColor {
   my $Ticket = shift;
   my $status = $Ticket->Status;
   my $css = "status" . lc $status;
   my $LastUpdater = $Ticket->LastUpdatedByObj->EmailAddress;
   my $TicketRequestors = $Ticket->Requestors->MemberEmailAddressesAsString;
   my $TicketCC = $Ticket->Cc->MemberEmailAddressesAsString;

   if (($TicketRequestors =~ $LastUpdater) || ($TicketCC =~ $LastUpdater))
   {
       $css = "status" . lc "reply";
       $status = "<div class=\"$css\">$status REP</div>";
   }
   else {
       $status = "<div class=\"$css\">$status</div>";
   }

   return \"$status";
}
