Request Tracker Querying Library

Project description


Simplifies query interface for Request Tracker’s rest-api lib RT Library. Main query interface has been take from Django Framework project


  • Python 3.4+
  • RT Library (it’s not dependency itself, but it uses in examples)


import rt

client = rt.Rt('http://localhost/rt/REST/1.0/',
               basic_auth=('user', 'password'))
assert client.login()
#: rt filtering does not support `in` operation, so interface looks similar
#: to django querying, but it sticks to its limits.
query = Q(Subject__contains='[improvements]') | Q(Subject__contains='[enhancements]')
query &= Q(Queue='development', Status='sprint', Owner='User',
result =, raw_query=query.resolve())

qset = query("Queue = development & Status = sprint & Owner ~ user")
result =, raw_query=query.resolve())
