Tab has changed notification after update to zammad 5


  • Used Zammad version: 5.0.1
  • Used Zammad installation type: (source, package, docker-compose, …) package
  • Operating system: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • Browser + version: Firefox 93

Expected behavior:

  • Being able to close a tab/ticket that has not been changed without being told that something has changed. User avatars should only display the pen symbol when they are editing the ticket.

Actual behavior:

  • Zammad tells me that I changed something on a new ticket when trying to close the tab on the left side which is not the case. Also every user that opens the ticket has a little pen on his avatar although they are not editing the ticket. This does not happen with older tickets that have already been answere, closed or edited in some way.

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  • open new ticket and try to close the tab again without changing anything else.

This is the notification we get when simply looking at a ticket and trying to close the tab on the left side afterwards.

Does anyone see the same behavior in their zammad instance ? We also have a dev system that is on the exact same version and does not show this behavior. I had a look at the log files but they don’t show any error.

Please update your zammad 5. We had major bugfixes yesterday. The issue could be related hopefully its fixed then.

Thank you will do asap

did not work it still shows the same behavior. I updated to 5.0.1-1634756231.678b5ada.bionic

Does it occur again after saving the current ticket state? Does it occur for all open tickets?

What you also could do to debug this is open your inspector in a broken ticket (F12) and post the results of:


Replace the number 2 with the Ticket-ID in your browser url. Also provide a screenshot from the ticket then.

If you have access to the console then provide also the output of the ticket via rails console:

zammad run rails r "pp Ticket.find(2)"

It does not occur again after saving the current ticket state

This is the output from the inspector



and this is the zammad run rails output

Can you post a screenshot of your field configuration of last_contact_is_agent ?

Hi @blorg ,
thanks for your help. I think we have core workflow issue here because of the heavy rework. You could try to use this workaround maybe if you are not using the field in the edit screen.

I will create issue for the topic and post it here in a sec.
