Here is a list of several RT extensions packaged and available from CPAN or other places. A complete list can be found at https://metacpan.org/search?q=RT%3A%3AExtension&search_type=modules

Most of these extensions are prepared with Module::Install::RTx module, which allows you to package extension easily and quickly. People who would like to package their extensions should read the module's documentation.

Help maintain this page

Please sort and refactor this list; RT::Extension is a verbose but lexigraphically equivalent form of RTx. Also note, that links to a particular version of a module on search.cpan may rot when later versions are released, used a perldoc query instead.

Using a tiny bit of javascript, selecting one of these queues will automatically jump to a search showing new, open and stalled tickets in that queue.
  • RT::Extension::Timeline - This extension for RT 3.6 uses Timeline http://simile.mit.edu/timeline/ to visualize RT tickets.
    • Works in 3.8 with a tweak to /path/to/rt/share/html/Callbacks/Timeline/Ticket/Elements/Tabs/Default to change the tab index from 'j' to something else e.g; 't'. Otherwise, the Bulk Update tab is clobbered.

  • RT-Extension-FastGroupRights - is a replacement for core GroupRights Pages with a faster Solution which not loads all available groups with their rights. It will only load the System Groups, Roles and User Defined Groups with already granted rights. Additional it offers a search Field to search for Groups to grant them rights. This is based on an Idea and Code from MIT (Stephen Turner)
