|0000278||SiT!||incidents||public||2008-12-03 10:33||2009-02-27 16:25|
|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||3.45||Fixed in Version||3.45|
|Summary||0000278: Finding contracts when adding incidents does not find "Pan, Peter"|
|Description||Click "create" for a new mail in the holding queue, then |
It does not recognise the contact if it exists because it looks for Peter, Pan and not Pan, Peter ..
The ordering of the last name first then the first name confuses the search.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Bumping this one to v3.45 as this would require some major reworking of the SQL that does the name lookup which we'd rather not do for a release such as 3.41 which is minor in focus.
The risk is that the changes might introduce more bugs.
From v3.45 when finding incidents from incoming emails in the holding queue the email address is used as a hint rather than the name, this is much more reliable and probably makes this request redundant.
Just to check, you did mean the process of finding the correct person to log an incident to after an email has come in?
If so I think the name search method is mainly redundant now.
Hi Ivan, yes this is exactly what i meant, in fact we made a small code change to recognise Peter Pan and Pan Peter but we could not succeed to regognise the contact when we had just an email address: eg:
If the mail header had:
"Pan, Peter <firstname.lastname@example.org>" it was ok because the script recognised the contact correctly and
"Peter, Pan <email@example.com>" the script did not always find the contact and we changed the add incident script as below to repair that:
// Filter by contact
$contactsql .= "AND (c.surname LIKE '%$search_string%' OR c.forenames LIKE '%$search_string%' ";
$contactsql .= "OR SOUNDEX('$search_string') = SOUNDEX(CONCAT_WS(' ', c.forenames, c.surname)) ";
$contactsql .= "OR SOUNDEX('$search_string') = SOUNDEX(CONCAT_WS(' ', c.surname, c.forenames)) ";
$contactsql .= "OR SOUNDEX('$search_string') = SOUNDEX(c.forenames) ";
$contactsql .= "OR s.name LIKE '%$search_string%') ";
But if the header had just "firstname.lastname@example.org" it could not find the contact at all.
Hope that helps
