Automatically subscribe to work items that are a "Filed Against: " a particular area

Adam Clark (111) | asked Oct 08 '14, 10:21 a.m.
I'd like to be able to subscribe to any work items that are filed against a particular team when they're created. I found the following guide online but it only describes the procedure to subscribe to all work items in a particular project:

Is what I'm after possible in RTC?

In step 6 you see that you have also "Calculated Values" available. By scripting you might add a dedicated user or current user based on a certain category.
But I suppose, that does not provide the flexibility you are looking for.

Any idea on where I can find information on the scripting API that RTC uses?

I need to correct myself, you can actually access the subscriptions in scripts. You would have to pass the UUID's for the contributors.

A Java extension see is another approach you could take.

Please be aware that a calculated value would always calculate and a default value provider is pretty useless, because the filed against value is not set when it runs. Therefore a custom participant would probably be the best option. Follow for an example. This is for approvals, but subscriptions are similar. There is a description of the subscription API on that blog as well.

With calculated fields I refer to client side scripting (JavaScript, dojo framework). These are my starting points
Server side means Java development and is intended to extend the Jazz functionality
