Assign Ticket & External Ticket Addon

Feature Overview

Assign Ticket & External Ticket Addon allows to assign tickets for staff outside any department. Add-on is responsible for creation of new profile to view & access certain ticket.

Backstory

We hired new developer to make HostBill integration with current website

We were in need to supply him with ticket ID so he can work close with the client. We do not want anyone new enter our main billing system  so we created this addon that sends  him email with following content

Hello

You have been assigned to ticket at HostBill System

Ticket [#6741ee] – Import from CVS

Log in here: http://hostbillapp.com/clientarea/superadmin/
Username: TestUser

Developer can now work with client on this ticket, ONLY on this ticket.

Full OnApp 2.1RC4 module hotfix

HostBill users recently reported issue with OnApp 2.1RC4 module.

Problem:
When creating billing plan using API its not possible to create machine as client, as OnApp throws HTTP500 + bad response error.

Solution:
We’ve created patch for OnApp Full-Featured module 2.1. To apply it please download your copy of module again from our clientarea, and extract archive contents
in main HostBill directory.

Patch drawbacks:
This patch hard-codes clients’ cpu-shares to unlimited (its not setting cpu-shares limit in OnApp), and for new machines created from HostBill clientarea it sets cpu-share to 1, despite of slider settings.

Please note:
This is temporary patch, once OnApp will fix this bug with next RC/Stable version we will upload regular version of module with working CPU-Shares limit.
