I guess that can be implemented by using pre-condition - Advisors. You can detect the save action using ISaveParameter interface and if the action is save, you can trigger further action you need.

Extension point for Advisor would be com.ibm.team.process.service.operationAdvisors and once you got this, you can find save action as below

// Action is save
eg: if (operation.getOperationData() instanceof ISaveParameter) {
           // do action
}

RTC Extension workshop is a good place to get detailed info.

Hi Charlie,

Thanks for your answer but i really need to do that on follow-up action. It's the goal of the question.
I know we can implement that using precondition.

 Thanks Ralp,

I found how display error message :
IReportInfo info = collector.createInfo("unable to save workitem", description);
    info.setSeverity(IProcessReport.ERROR);
    collector.addInfo(info);

But that don"t stop the save action. 
Do you know how can i stop the follow-up action in my plugin ?

Thanks,
Antoine

you can stop a prior save with a followon/participant
the advisor stops it.. the participant doesn't get fired until AFTER the save

Hmm, I was mistaken then, I thought the workshop prevented the save if no build engine was found. I will have to have a look.

hm..I meant to type cannot stop..  this is why the participant must issue another save. it cannot just change the data and let the operation continue.
