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


The trigger condition, Ticket Subject text... scans the ticket subject test, therefore you can use this condition to create triggers based on a ticket's subject text.

    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.
