About the CS Support Ticket System

LCSR has deployed Znuny , open source ticketing system for problems, bugs, and help requests.

We are using email to submit problem reports to Znuny. A ticket will be generated and the ticket number will be sent back to the user in an email message.  Additional messages from the system may appear when the state of the ticket changes.

How do I report a problem?
  • Send an email to detailing your specific problem.
  • Contact the Operator at ext. 5-2443 (848-445-2443 for external callers) for issues that might require a more immediate response. See the Operations page for coverage.
How do I check the status of my trouble ticket?

You can check the status of your request with this interface. Use your Rutgers username/password to login to the site.

What do the messages look like?

This can be seen in the following example session.

What happens when I submit a problem?

You should get a new ticket message from the system with the ticket number. This can be seen in the following example session.

Why didn’t I get a response?

The incoming messages are passed through a spam filter.  If the filter marks the message as spam, the message will be dropped before it is delivered to the system.  This is an attempt to prevent spam from creating extraneous tickets.  If you don’t get a response, try resending the message or call Operations.

What is the response time?

Most people get a respond in less than a day and within hours. We will try to respond to you mostly within 24-48 business hours. If you don’t get any respond then, please call the operator at ext. 5-2443 (848-445-2443 for external callers), as something else could be wrong.
