Report with large string custom attribute

Hi,

I'd like to expose a large string attribute in the Jazz data source so I can include it in a BIRT report.

I've tried to create a live table with the attribute (see source code below; there is no value() method for large string), but I now understand that it is not possible to select large strings with a data query.

liveTable.setItemType(IWorkItem.ITEM_TYPE);
WorkItemQueryModel model = WorkItemQueryModel.ROOT;
List<IField> selection = liveTable.getSelection();
selection.add(model.stringExtensions().key());
selection.add(model.stringExtensions().value());
selection.add(model.largeStringExtensions().key());

Is there a way to create a BIRT report that contains large strings?

Thanks

The repository backend does not expose large string attributes in the data query framework. Please file an enhancement request against jazz foundation. Large string attributes and as a matter of fact any attribute should be selectable even if it is not indexed in the database. Currently they are not. We get many requests for this feature which feels like a good 2.0 enahancement candidate.
