Querying Work Items by their planned for / target (RTC Java API)

I am trying to query work items that have a specific planned for / target but keep getting errors. I have tried the expression with both the name of the IIteration and the object itself (it's current state). Any help is much appreciated!

Here is my error currently: Unknown queryable field: target

and my code:
     IWorkItemClient workItemClient = (IWorkItemClient) getTeamRepository().getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);

    //Create a query factory
        IQueryableAttributeFactory factory = QueryableAttributes.getFactory(IWorkItem.ITEM_TYPE);
        IQueryableAttribute typeAttribute = factory.findAttribute(getProjectArea(), IWorkItem.TARGET_PROPERTY, getAuditableClient(), getMonitor());
        //Begin writing our query expression
        AttributeExpression typeExpression = new AttributeExpression(typeAttribute, AttributeOperation.CONTAINS, versions.get(14));
        Term term= new Term(Operator.AND);

        //Execute query
        IQueryClient queryClient = (IQueryClient) getTeamRepository().getClientLibrary(IQueryClient.class);
        IQueryResult<IResolvedResult<IWorkItem>> result = queryClient.getResolvedExpressionResults(getProjectArea(), term, IWorkItem.FULL_PROFILE);

did u try the iteration id (the string behind the label)

like so?

 AttributeExpression typeExpression = new AttributeExpression(typeAttribute, AttributeOperation.CONTAINS, versions.get(14).getLabel());

I have and I get this error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument must be an instance of IAuditableHandle

 HI White,

           I am also trying to fetch the work items based on the current sprint,
I am also getting java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument must be an instance of IAuditableHandle .
below is my code,
IWorkItemClient workItemClient = (IWorkItemClient) iTeamRepository.getClientLibrary(IWorkItemClient.class);
IAuditableCommon iAuditableCommon = (IAuditableCommon) iTeamRepository.getClientLibrary(IAuditableCommon.class);

IQueryableAttribute planAttribute = factory.findAttribute(projectArea, IWorkItem.TARGET_PROPERTY, iAuditableCommon, monitor);
Expression plan = new AttributeExpression(planAttribute, AttributeOperation.EQUALS, CurrentMilestoneVariable.VARIABLE_ID);
Term term = new Term(Term.Operator.AND);
IQueryDescriptor iQueryDescriptor = queryClient.createQuery(projectArea, QueryTypes.WORK_ITEM_QUERY, "AllItems", term); --- getting exception at this line.
Please provide the solution if you did that.

regards, ramesh

Hi Ramesh M,

I am also doing the same, trying to query work items that have a specific planned for.
Can you please share your solution if you have it already.

Thank you.
