Automatic re-creation of archived iterations

Peter Asp (1235) | asked Jun 23 '14, 9:30 a.m.
 I'm creating a new process template based on my current RTC project. Here I have a few archived iterations the 'active' ones that I want for every new project based on the template.

When I export my project to a new process template and create a new RTC project based on that template the achieved iterations get into a non-archived state again (and plans are created for these)

Is this expected behavior? Any way I can prevent this from happening?

I'd like to get the archived iterations removed permanently if possible as they serve no purpose for new projects.

 Hello Peter,
I guess you're facing a limitation that should be addressed by Do not include archived iterations in a process template created from a project area (86120)

To overcome this, once your process template is created, open it, go to timelines tab.
Modify the XML to fit your needs.

Sample content:
<process-state xmlns="">
    <timeline id="development" name="Main Development" projectTimeline="true">
        <iteration has-deliverable="true" id="1.0" name="Release 1.0">
            <iteration current="true" has-deliverable="true" id="1.0 S1" name="Sprint 1 (1.0)"/>
            <iteration has-deliverable="true" id="1.0 S2" name="Sprint 2 (1.0)"/>
        <iteration has-deliverable="true" id="backlog" name="Backlog">
            <iteration has-deliverable="true" id="iter1" name="iter1"/>
    <timeline id="iter2" name="iter2">
        <iteration has-deliverable="true" id="iter2" name="iter2"/>

Once satisfied with hierarchy, proceed with PA creation.

Hope it helps,
