Hi, I’m very new to Zammad. I just got it installed and started using it for a few weeks. I want to change the default new ticket creation to email (default if received call) I searched and found the above link.

when I login (root) to ubuntu and type the command

Setting.set(‘ui_ticket_create_default_type’, ‘email-out’)

but it shows an error

-bash : syntax error near unexpected token `‘ui_ticket_create_default_type’,’

So, pls guide me how to command line before I can use

Setting.set(‘ui_ticket_create_default_type’, ‘email-out’)

Thank you

Please see this page:

Also you may want to consider using the official documentation not third parties.

Many thanks for the suggestion. But i have no experience on ruby or rails.

So, based on root prompt should I enter the below command?

zammad run rails r ‘p Setting.set(‘ui_ticket_create_default_type’, ‘email-out’)’
