How do I create a trigger based on a ticket subject? Follow

    Recently Zendesk added native support for searching only the subject string!

    So to summarize, there are now two conditions to match against subject:

    • Comment text... will look through comments and subject
    • Subject text... will only look at the subject

    Also not documented, but note that a string like Äsch won't be matched by condition äsch, while a string like Test will be matched by condition test.  

    That is, search doesn't seem to recognize lower and upper case letters that are outside of the US character set.

    Will this option be made available in the View section? To be able to create views based on ticket: subject text would come in quite handy as well.

    I don't seam to be able to do this operation anymore and also the trigger I create few months ago has been deactivated.
