RTC 4.0.3: Associating WorkItems with a Build Result?

Jason MacDonald (1146) | asked Sep 20 '13, 12:36 p.m.
We're using RTC 4.0.3, and even though we have a requirement to supply a WorkItem and comment to a changeset, nothing appears in the build result's Work Items tab after a build completes.

Is there a way to display what WIs were associated with a particular build? I looked at the workItemPublisher Ant task, but that didn't seem to be it (unless you create the changeset/WI file prior, somehow).

would you like to have a look , how the JKE Build has been done?? That will give you some insight about the WI associated with the Build.

Sure, but I thought it would be built-in to see what work Items were part of each build. If there's something you could show me, that would be great.

You have to accept the change via the teamAccept Ant task, or through the Jazz Build Engine.  Then it will create the work item/change set linkages.

Okay, that makes sense, but I guess I have to understand where check-in/deliver a changeset falls into the workflow. I added the teamAccept task but the log shows:

[teamAccept] Accepted 0 change sets.
[teamAccept] Discarded 0 change sets.

even though I delivered a change. There is an entry in the changeset file I supplied in the teamAccept task as well...

Thanks for any help Spencer!

Do you have a dedicated build workspace?  If you are delivering to the same workspace that is doing the accept there will not be anything to accept!

The simple things.... after creating a new build WS, there are links being displayed for the changes, although it still says this in the log

Thanks Spencer!!

Jason, could you please mark Spencer's response as accepted?
