Problems with exisiting parent-child links post CSV import for creating new tasks.

Badari Narayana (111) | asked Dec 06 '13, 7:33 p.m.
In the current WorkItem Team Area, We have 3- Level of WorkItems. The organization is:

Incident walk-thru:
We have a Requirement1 which has a child Scenario1, the Scenario1 has child task1.
I'm trying to import new tasks from a .csv file. the new tasks that I create should be children of task1. Input file is as follows:
Type Parent Summary Description Owned By
Task #1234 sample Summary sample Desc xyz

Where #1234 is the id of task1.

Post import, the task1 to new-task parent child relationship is created. However, this will also cause the link between Task1 and scenario1 to be broken.

This phenomenon of the grand parent link getting wiped off when establishing a new parent child relationship is evident across all levels, across WorkItem Types.

Please help.

if you d this manually, the parent/child link between requirement1 and task1 remains, correct?

a workitem can have only one parent.  it could have multiple children.

Thanks Sam. I do understand that a workitem can have only one parent. The issue is, post import of "child task" under "Task1", The link between "Task1" and "Scenario1" gets wiped off.

sounds like a bug. What RTC version is this?

This is a bug that was fixed in RTC-4.0
