17.1 Parent / Child issue

    After upgrading from 17.0 to 17.1 we've found a problem with a customization that allows us to specify an Incident as a Parent ticket of a Request and vice versa.  Now if we attempt to do this from the Relationships tab we receive "AHD05999:Parent ticket type is not same as current ticket type".  This form utilized the zallcrs factory as specified in the old enhancement pack which still works for the Go Button search, for example.  Anyway I'm throwing this out there to see if anyone knows how to (re)fix this new and highly undesirable "feature".

    Hello Derek,

     

    Can you provide more details about this "old enhancement pack" that you mentioned?  Where you obtained the zallcrs factory?  Was this something that a 3rd party developer had created for an earlier release of Service Desk?  If so, can they be contacted to see if they can provide an update?

    Bear in mind that we only certified for the baseline product functionality and do not certify custom changes that were introduced by third parties.

    Hi Derek,

     

    Check the nx.env file for the entry @NX_TICKET_REL=no.  Since it is customization, change value may not affect your customization. However, you can have a try.

    If you find the exact line, you can install the option "TICKET_REL" with value Yes through command line on Primary server in Conventional env as below command.  If you have secondary server, you need to manually copy the line @NX_TICKET_REL=Yes from primary nx.env to secondary nx.env.

        pdm_options_mgr -c -s TICKET_REL -v Yes -a pdm_option.inst

    Then, recycle to take effect.  After you have the desired result, you need to run the below command on primary server command line in order to preserve the nx entry in the template file which would save the change not reset to default during pdm_configure. 

        pdm_options_mgr -c -s TICKET_REL -v Yes -a pdm_option.inst -t


    Please let us know whether it helps.

    Derek, you have saved my bacon once again.  This fix now allows me to link between ticket types just like before.

    ​I have this problem when creating an inciden from a request. We get the error AHD05999: Parent ticket is not the same as current ticket type, when you try to save the new incident. I do not have the option at all for @NX_TICKET_REL in my nx.env file. Is this something I'm supposed to add? ​
