JRS and work item custom attributes presention


Liora Milbaum (513275107) | asked Feb 08 '15, 11:22 a.m.
 JRS 5.0.2

I have built a report which uses work item custom attributes. The issue is that it presents the literal ids instead of its values. See attached image:


How can I convert the literal ids to their values?

Thanks,
Liora

Liora,

I have been looking at JRS recently. One observation is that currently work item attributes of type enumeration list are not really supported. You will see a list of literal ID's. I think that is what you see above. Actually the value returned is a list of items and you would have to resolve each enumeration literal.

I haven't had a deeper look, so I can't tell if you could fix that somehow. I would suggest to look at https://jazz.net/library/article/1470 if you can find a way to fix this with some effort on your side. Otherwise this is likely to be an enhancment request that you should create, if you have the need. The problem though is, how should the graph group by multiple values (that you could have).

Looking at it right now and for JRS the returned values for lists are just interpreted as one object converted to a string. Multiple literals are considered to be one value together, as far as I can tell.
