CQ-Synchronizer rules: can 1 item type have more than 1 item manager?

Sumant Renukarya (1.1k23339) | asked Jan 14 '15, 11:18 a.m.
When defining a syncrule, I would like to know if it's possible to define more than 1 itemmanager, so that it is possible to choose between a standard implementation and a 'special' own implementation.

We have tried to implement a new item manager supporting all types of project area definition.
The new item manger could be used if the item type <none> is selected, so that it is loaded.
However, it looks the method getSupportedTypeInfo() is not called.

In this own implementation, what is used is the TypeInfo for contributors. So we expected that when item type contributor is selected, we can choose between the standard and the own item manger. 

However, we always gets only the standard one.

Is this possible or supported?

In other words:

--> The new item manager that I have created could be used if the item type <none> is selected but this item manager does not get listed for contributor item type.

--> In the Type Mapping section, essentially we select the item type that one wants to synchronize with the ClearQuest record type. The Item manager property is set to the manager that creates and synchronizes the item type you selected.

--> In this case, a newly created item manager but this doesn't get listed if the item type is anything but <none>.

If we select the 'Item type' to a particular value and we want both the default value for the Item Manager and the custom value to display, it doesn't. We just get to select the default value.

Thank you
