As Tickets no longer have a site-wide unique ID which I really find is a pity regarding easy link generation for ticket IDs.

And especially now that the ID of a ticket will change if you move it from one ticket tool to the other, this is really bad. Please at least implement a redirection from the old address to the new address if a ticket was moved.

    Of course, needs to work with both bulk move and individual move

    This works fairly well but doesn't work if a ticket is moved more than once. I discussed with Dave and we came up with the following:

    1. Create a new Artifact type called MovedArtifact with fields _id, project_id, app_config_id, moved_to_url
    2. Create a MovedTicket subclass with a ticket_num field
    3. In the general case, when an artifact is moved, create a MovedArtifact instance "in its place," with ids that match the pre-move artifact (_id, app_config_id, project_id), and set the moved_to_url to the url that the artifact is being moved to.
    4. When a ticket is moved, create a new MovedTicket instance, which also sets ticket_num.
    5. Now, if ticket is not found, look for a MovedTicket with the same project, app_config, ticket_num, and redirect to the moved_to_url.

    In this way, multiple moves will also work.

    Finally - the ticket API needs to be updated to follow these redirects also.
