About the plugin

The plugin attempts to "guess" the skill in the email subject, and then tries to "automatically create" the incident, and "auto assign" it. The "guessing" is done by trying to match tags, that are set by the administrator for each skill, in the subject of the email


  • Go to svn here:Download.
  • Save the files to your /plugins folder.
  • The structure should be:
  • Install the plugin in SiT, go to : SiT | Control Panel | Configuration
    • Locate Load Plugins in the bottom of the screen, and add auto_create_tags to the comma separated list.
  • In your SiT installation go to : SiT | Customers | Maintenance| Products and skills| List skills.
  • Edit each skill and add some tags that are relative to the words customers use in their email subjects. For e.g. if the skill is called "Ferrari" then a tag to the skill called "ferrari" or "F40" etc.


The configuration of the plugin can be found here Configuration.

Bugs and Testing

For testing i have uploaded a simple PHP file which can help you to test some functions of the plugin. The file is called Test_search.php and can be found in the same folder as the plugin. Put this file in your SiT root directory (/yourSiTdirectory/) and run it directly, like /MySiTSite/Test_search.php. Put an email address in and a test subject and click Search. The page uses the same functions as the plugin.
