Autopopulate Summary with data from other fields in the same work item


Mike Shkolnik (9657159143) | asked Nov 06 '13, 6:45 p.m.
I would like the Summary field of a specific work item type to auto-populate with OWNER_ID - EffectiveDate, where OWNER_ID is the login ID of the Owned By selection of the work item and EffectiveDate is a custom date field of the work item.

Mike,

I think, you have these options you can try, starting with low and then increasing complexity.

  1. Use JavaScript and a calculated value provider. See https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/AttributeCustomization and https://jazz.net/library/article/1093 Lab 5 for hints and examples. This would be the easiest option. I am not sure you can get the Onwer ID, I believe you can only get either the owner UUID [getName()] and the user name [getLabel()].
  2. Use a JavaBased calculated Value Provider. I provide example code here: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/attribute-customization-java-based-value-providers-conditions-and-validators/ 
  3. Work Item Save Participant, which would actually save a second time after setting the summary
I would go for 1 or 2.

Make the Summary field read only if you calculate from the input values.
