recurring requests
Obviously it's pretty simple to write a script against the REST API and launch it from a cron job, but has anybody done anything that's more end-user facing to allow for the setup of recurring tickets for periodic maintenance and the like?

Well, that's a bit simpler than the script (which, as I said, was already pretty simple) - but at least the way we operate it's still an admin task. What I'm dreaming of is an addition to the web UI, similar to the dashboard subscription interface, that would allow an RT user to configure the scheduling info and some basic ticket data. Guess that's something to add to my ever-expanding list of things to work on...

we made a seperate queue with a scrip applied that created new tickets
with identical custom fields and other info every time an old ticket was
closed.

custom fields included interval between recurring events, so new tickets
were created with a due date in the future based on now()+the custom
field with the recurrence interval.

we actually use it to track recurring outbound payments, but should
easily apply to recurring maintenance too.
