How to populate an attribute after a link has been created


Marek Siekierski (817410) | asked Dec 05 '14, 1:51 p.m.
How do you populate an attribute value in one work item from another work item when a link has been established? ie. a child work item is created from a parent work item, and the "Customer Name" attribute value is inherited. Is this possible OOTB, or will this require some scripting?

not possible out of the box. I don't think you can do it with javscript either as there are restrictions on links from javascript for workitem handlers..

you can do it from a server side java plugin extension..
