How do I request a Request Tracker (RT) instance?

If there is an existing RT instance in use by your department or campus unit, contact your unit's REACH member about creating a queue for your needs. However, if you need a new instance, send a request to systems@uic.edu with the following: 

  • Name of Instance. Probably related to the name of your department, no spaces are allowed. This will be used in the URL and possibly in outgoing email, so keep it reasonably short. 
  • Principal administrator. The administrator have superuser privs to configure your RT instance, add users, create queues, assign privs, and create new superusers. 
  • Email address. Optional. RT queues have their own email addresses in the @helpdesk.uic.edu domain. You can request an @uic.edu email alias for each RT instance as well as individual queues.

Other options

Check other available options for creating a non-personal, departmental email address.
