synchronize attribute


Roger Layani (5313038) | asked Apr 02 '13, 7:08 a.m.
After addinf a new custom Field I would like to synchronize all existing Work Items with the new added field.
For this I use the Eclipse sub-menu on work item type button and run the comment synchronize attribute.
But this interface is very not convenient to synchronize the entire work item existing list.
You can not select all the existing  work items and I have to proceed by part of 1000 items .
The action take several minutes and when you have more than 30000 items it is not usable for admin to wait completion and act the next 1000 list.

Is there another way to do same operation maybe  programmatic ally ?

Roger, you can also use the plain Java Client Libraries to do this. One example is provided here: http://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/11/19/using-an-expression-to-synchronize-attributes-for-work-items-of-a-specific-type/

You should also check a similar question here: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/107941/synchronize-attributes-of-thousands-of-work-items-is-there-an-easy-way for other ways, especially Kevin's answer.

Roger, there was a discussion the next day and here is another way to do it in the tool, without having to run some automation: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/107941/synchronize-attributes-of-thousands-of-work-items-is-there-an-easy-way

Dependent on how many you have, you might have to increase a timeout though.
