Usage

An example is worth a thousand words:

>>> import rt.rest2
>>> import requests.auth
>>> tracker = rt.rest2.Rt('http://localhost/rt/REST/2.0/', http_auth=requests.auth.HTTPBasicAuth('root', 'password'))
>>> map(lambda x: x['id'], tracker.search(Queue='helpdesk', Status='open'))
['1', '2', '10', '15']
>>> tracker.create_ticket(queue='helpdesk', \
... subject='Coffee (important)', content='Help I Ran Out of Coffee!')
19
>>> tracker.edit_ticket(19, Requestor='addicted@example.com')
True
>>> tracker.reply(19, content='Do you know Starbucks?')
True

Get the last important updates from a specific queue that have been updated recently:

>>> import datetime
>>> import base64
>>> import rt.rest2
>>> import requests.auth
>>> tracker = rt.rest2.Rt('http://localhost/rt/REST/2.0/', http_auth=requests.auth.HTTPBasicAuth('root', 'password'))
>>> fifteen_minutes_ago = str(datetime.datetime.now() - datetime.timedelta(minutes=15))
>>> tickets = tracker.last_updated(since=fifteen_minutes_ago)
>>> for ticket in tickets:
>>>     id = ticket['id']
>>>     history = tracker.get_ticket_history(id)
>>>     last_update = list(reversed([h for h in history if h['Type'] in ('Correspond', 'Comment')]))
>>>     hid = tracker.get_transaction(last_update[0]['id'] if last_update else history[0]['id'])
>>>
>>>     attachment_id = None
>>>     for k in hid['_hyperlinks']:
>>>         if k['ref'] == 'attachment':
>>>             attachment_id = k['_url'].rsplit('/', 1)[1]
>>>             break
>>>
>>>         if attachment_id is not None:
>>>             attachment = c.get_attachment(attachment_id)
>>>             if attachment['Content'] is not None:
>>>                 content = base64.b64decode(attachment['Content']).decode()
>>>                 print(content)

Please use docstrings to see how to use different functions. They are written in ReStructuredText. You can also generate HTML documentation by running make html in doc directory (Sphinx required).
