RTC v4.0.0.1 - Import/Export

Asheesh Sangamneheri (612) | asked Aug 19 '14, 11:31 a.m.
I would like to move a project and its artifacts from one server to another. I understand it is not possible to export/import  project. But as a work around, would it be possible to export work items (user stories, task, defects, comments, sprints, etc) from an one project and import them to a new project? 

What work items can be exported/imported?
What data would be lost?
How do you do it?

you can bulk move work items using
for RTC 4.0

Install a dedicated 4.0 Eclipse Client, install the above plugin,
and connect to your server to bulk move work items.

Hope it helps,

 Hi Eric,

Thanks for replying.

How does one export/import other project artifacts - plans, reports, builds, timelines, etc?


Eric Jodet commented Aug 20 '14, 7:54 a.m.

 well - not easy Ash.

timelines could be extracted in process template,
but for plans, builds... not possible I think.
SCM resources could be checked-out, unlinked from current repo,
and re-loaded to new repo.

Thanks! That's the impression I get from reading through some of the posts here.. its not easy and/or perfect. Which seems a flaw in the product architecture, as I am sure everyone will encounter this requirement at some stage.
