Moving Work items from one Project to other in RTC 3.0.1.4


Rao Shines (15944758) | asked May 24 '13, 9:35 a.m.
Dear Team,

We have around 300 work items in Project A and we would like to move all the work items to Project B. The work items have attachments and also they have links to RQM and RRC.

Is there a way we can do a bulk move at a time retaining the Attachments and links.Any help in this regard will be greatly helpful.

Thanks in Advance.
Teja.

The Web UI and the Eclipse UI only allow to move an individual work item. However https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreasInRTC3 provides with a patch that enables this on a selection of multiple work items.

Please make sure to fully read and understand the description. You have to install the version of the Eclipse client mentioned. If it says 3.0.1.3 it has to be that version. Since you have 3.0.1.4 in the server there should be no problem. Use a separate install. You apply the patch in it and then use it for the move.

I think, if you want to migrate all the links over, you would still have to do considerably more work and coding, unfortunately. If it is in one repository https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreasInRTC3 is a cheaper option.
