API Features Beyond Create Ticket


Wondering if there are any API features provided besides the "create ticket" feature. I need the ability to integrate with a couple other systems - essentially, I need to be able to show lists of tickets in another app and allow for links into OSTicket.

Does OSTicket provide such API integrations? If not, does anybody know of any plugins that might do the same?



  • Heya,

    The only built in api function at the moment is to create tickets.

    I've been contemplating making a pull request for some more API functions that could be used.

    Would something like this work?
    It'll create a json array with all the ticket data that you specify in the link.

    This will give you the id (can be used to generate the link), when it was created, the number of the ticket and the subject.
    It will also check if the created date starts with 2017.

    Pretty much all data is available, just need to write the right syntax.

    The following filters are available: exact, isnull, gt, gte, lt, lte, contains, startswith, hasbit

    @chdir(dirname(__FILE__).'/'); //Change dir.

    if (!osTicket::is_cli())
    die(__('tickets.php only supports local calls'));


    function isFilter($var){
    $index = strrpos($var, '_');
    if(!$index || index == strlen($var) - 1)
    return false;

    $last_word = substr($var, $index + 1);
    return in_array($last_word, array('exact', 'isnull', 'gt', 'gte', 'lt', 'lte', 'contains', 'startswith', 'hasbit'));

    $tickets = Ticket::objects();
    foreach ($_GET as $key => $value) {
    } else {

    if ($tickets->exists(true)) {
    $result = array();
    foreach ($tickets as $T)
    array_push($result, $T);
    echo json_encode($result);
    } else {
    echo json_encode(array('Errorcode' => 2, 'Message' => 'No tickets found.'));
  • Thanks for this - being a lazy developer, I was hoping a full-featured RESTful API was already available/built-in (or someone had created a plugin). 

    But this is definitely a start...

    My lazy side just connects directly to the database.. 


    SELECT t.ticket_id, fev.value as subject, t.isoverdue, t.created, MAX(tt.created) as last, s.firstname, s.lastname,
                COUNT( as messages,
      , as sla

                FROM ot_ticket t
                LEFT JOIN ot_staff s ON s.staff_id = t.staff_id
                LEFT JOIN ot_thread tt ON tt.object_id = t.ticket_id
                LEFT JOIN ot_thread_entry te ON = te.thread_id
                LEFT JOIN ot_department d ON = t.dept_id
    LEFT JOIN ot_sla sla ON = t.sla_id
                LEFT JOIN ot_form_entry fe ON fe.object_id = t.ticket_id 
                LEFT JOIN ot_form_entry_values fev ON fev.entry_id =

                WHERE t.status_id=1 AND d.manager_id = 38

                GROUP BY t.ticket_id
                ORDER BY t.ticket_id DESC

    Get all tickets for that manager.. useful for preparing a ticket status report for each manager.
