I have been very satisfied in using Request Tracker for tracking security
incidents, but I have not altered it yet. I would like to add LDAP and
other database lookup functionality to it because I initiate the creation
of tickets most of the time and end up searching for and entering the
information by hand every time.
I would also like to add some sort of "canned" message insertion feature to
the "Update ticket" and "Create Ticket" pages because I initiate and update
a lot of tickets with messages that differ only slightly.
Has anyone attempted adding hooks for these types of things?
