Apply calculated-value script to existing wortkitems

 Hi All,
            I have applied a new calculated-value script and dependencies to an existing attribute. How to apply it to existing workitems automatically? Is it possible?

Existing workitems are currently showing the old value and are getting updated with script calculation - only on an edit+save. It would be too difficult to update each item manually.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Valli you could try to run a query and then an automated save from the Plain Java Client Libraries.

I have not tried that myself in this special context and would suggest to try it on a test server.

See http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/10/29/using-work-item-queris-for-automation/ http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/19/using-an-expression-to-synchronize-attributes-for-work-items-of-a-specific-type/  http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/19/using-expressions-for-automation/ and other posts on my blog for how this kind of automation can be used. There is code that you can download linked to http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/19/using-an-expression-to-synchronize-attributes-for-work-items-of-a-specific-type/
