Making UI changes in a Zammad Package?

As I understand it, I can use a .szpm package to add a UI file to Zammad, but I need to run zammad run rake assets:precompile and restart the service for it to pick up the change. Is this correct, or is there a way to automate this as part of the package installation?

Your first statement is correct. You can’t automate precompiling and the followed required restart of the application.

Though you’d only need this step on:

  • installation or updating your addon
  • updating Zammad (after updating [this step is required after every update])
