Trac Ticket to Salesforce ticket synchronization


Maintain synchronization if Trac tickets in Salesforce. Trac tickets are reflected by the Salesforce custom objects, Ticket and Comment. Ticket objects are linked to Cases via M2M relationship provided by the CaseTicketLink custom object. Even though this is a M2M relation, Trac's uses a custom text field for the Case number, so it's essentially many-to-one.

Comment objects are related to Ticket objects via the link custom object, TicketCommentLink. The related lists layouts are modified to display the related object fields rather then the object id.

You need the "tracrpc" component installed and enabled for this plugin to work. You also need to add a custom field, "case_number", as shown below.

This file gets copied to the "plugins" directory of the trac project.

Example settings in trac.ini are:

tracrpc.* = enabled
ticket2sforce.* = enabled
ticketvalidator.* = enabled

username = yourSFusername
password = yourSFpasswd
sectoken = yourSFsecurityToken
wsdl = partner.wsdl

case_number = text
case_number.label = Case Number

new.required = case_number

You will need to install the following Salesforce project artifacts using either the Eclipse SForce plugin or the ant-based migration tool.

src/layouts/Case-Case Layout.layout
src/layouts/Comment__c-Comment Layout.layout
src/layouts/Ticket__c-Ticket Layout.layout
src/layouts/TicketCommentLink__c-TicketCommentLink Leyout.layout

The "migration tool" is just a set of Salesforce-specific Ant tasks which use the metadata API to upload/download artifacts, such as custom objects, etc.

I provide an Ant script to perform the deployment. You need to acquire the ant-salesforce.jar by following these steps:

  1. Log into a org on your deployment machine.
  2. Click Your Name ➤ Setup ➤ Develop ➤ Tools, and then click Migration Tool.
  3. Save the .zip file locally and extract the contents to the directory of your choice.
  4. Copy ant-salesforce.jar into your Ant installation's lib directory. The lib directory is located in the root folder of your Ant installation. You could also just copy this jar to the same directory as build.xml
