Hi

Would there be a way to make the work item IDs for each project area
unique an dsequenial for each project area? That is, when I create a new
project area the WI numbering should be restarted from 1.


Thanks
Freddy

Hi Sudhakar,
This is interesting question. However to you have any business justification for this feature?

Hi Krzys, This is a very old question, and Freddy is unfortunately no longer in the Jumpstart team and involved with the Jazz products as far as I know.

Requirements like this have come up several times over the past years. We have nothing in the product to support this, it is however possible to create some custom artificial ID e.g. using https://github.com/jazz-community/rtc-workitem-numbering or similar approaches.

 Freddy,


Unfortunately, in EWM (RTC), work items are numbered on the basis of the server, not the project. Nothing has changed here and there is no way to change this in the system configuration.

This is correct. However this extension might be useful for certain requirements: https://github.com/jazz-community/rtc-workitem-numbering .

In general it would be possible to create an additioanl project area ID using such extensions that are only unique in a project area.

You realise this question is 12 years old? I know nothing's changed but I think Freddie may no longer care about the answer :-)

Davyd,


I think I considered that when I was responding to this question. Other people are using forum to search for answers to their questions so I do not think it was lost time :).

I value your contrbutions Davyd, Bartosz.

As a moderator, I have decided to accept the answer. It is still true. And I decided to provide additional information. The answer is interesting for the forum. It likely does have no value for Freddy any more, unfortunately.

(Shout out to Freddy from Germany, if you read this, it was a blast to meet in India and to have you on the team. Hope you are doing well down under.)

I would like to ask Davyd and Bartosz to consider using comments and not answers when contemplating the past.

Thanks,

Ralph
