There is this old entry:

But it is really not helpful. Is there any plan to introduce access to WorkItems (Create, List, Update) via scm or lscm?

I am new to RTC and SCM CLI is currently nothing more than Git CLI, if it would make the WorkItem stuff available via CLI, it would really make a difference.

Oh and by the way. I know, that there are other ways like OSLC etc. But I explicitly ask about CLI interface,

Actually, there is command line interface from Eclipse Lyo project. Check this document.

Thanks for the information. I never took a look into Lyo, because of its name "Eclipse Lyo", so I thought it is GUI based.

On the other hand, I just think, one of the biggest features of RTC/Jazz vs. already existing and established (here in our company) "tools" is its "integrated in one" focus.

Therefore my intension would be "one client for all". If I use Eclipse client, I can access scm features and work items. Therefore my expectation would be: If I use "one" CLI client, I can do the same.

A CLI is typically the simplest and fastest way to adapt "own scripts / tools" for doing automated stuff. I've already worked with OSLC interface, but it requires more than just doing a "command line call" with some parameters.

there currently is no CLI for work items. If you subscribe and comment on the associated Plan Item 272095  for this feature, this will improve understanding the business value of this feature in relation to other features currently being built and bubble it up in the backlog.
Usually, plan items from the top of the backlog are considered for each category to be included in the next sprint.

I took the liberty of connecting your forum entry to above plan item.

If this answers your question, please mark it as answered.

Was any Command introduced to fulfill this requirement ..
This was asked around one and half year back..

Nayeem, while there was no official addition to the product yet, one of our best developers Ralph Schoon has published a Work Item Commandline tool in his blog. You will find it useful and stable code of high quality and I recommend you give it a spin.
