Require a child workitem based on a field value


Brandon Urban (1134) | asked May 17 '13, 6:37 p.m.
 I was wondering if there was a way to require a new child work item if a user selects a specific value in the current work item.  I would like to force the user to create a child dbcr workitem if database changes are needed for a build or deployment.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

it can be done, but not with anything standard. I believe you would have to write an advisor plugin in Java to issue a warning if not specific child is found. (I don't think you can work thru the links with a Javascript handler).
