RequestTracker Commandline Interface

The command is rt from the rt3.6-clients package. The tool also exits in rt 3.4 but as rt.debian.org and rt.debconf.org use 3.6, we'll assume 3.6 in the following.

Configuration

run rt help config and set environmental variables accordingly:

RTUSER=guest
RTPASSWD=readonly
RTSERVER=https://rt.debian.org

Or put

user guest
passwd readonly
server https://rt.debian.org

in ~/.rtrc.

Using

rt list 'creator="my.email@addre.ss" and (status="new" or status="open")'

rt show ticket/123/history
rt show -l ticket/123/history

rt help list
rt help show

Someone please describe actual usage example, for now I'll use recommend rt help and rt help actions :-)
