We have a test defect work item template created in Contracts Front End project area on igartc02 server which we would like to use that in another project area "Global Contract Management System" on igartc01 server. Can you please help me setup test defect work item template? Please let me know if you need any other specific information on this request. Thanks

Sorry, my first answer was for RQM...

You can export and import work item templates using the Eclipse client. Use File>Export look for the Work Item Template wizard and export. On the other repository you should be able to import the exported template.

Hi Ralph,

Thanks for the reply.

But when I try to export and Import the WI Template from one server to the other, I am unable to find the Template in the imported RTC Project area, How can I create a new WI using that WI template.

I just created a template, then exported it, renamed in the XML and followed: to import it. I then refreshed my view on the Process Configuration>Project Configuration>Configuration Data>Work Items>Templates and the imported template showed up. I could use it in Eclipse immediately after that.

Please note, my template had references to repository items and would have to be refined to work on other project areas as described in

"An XML file specifying the template in a valid format is required. See for details about the file format."

You have to be connected to the other repository with an eclipse client and select the target project area, if you import a template.

And it's the entire template of all workitem types. You cannot just get the defect workitem.
