RTC option to view/ query for archived workitems?

Sunil Kumar R (1.1k12744) | asked Mar 02 '15, 10:27 a.m.
Hello! Is there a way to query for deleted (archived) workitems in RTC? 
I tried using the RTC rest query to look for archived workitems by a project area where the associated to which I have a few archived workitems. I tried by keywords such as archived=true, field 'archived' they seem invalid / undefined.

The RTC workitem query does have a field 'Archived' but the option seems to work only for 'false', I dint find anything specific on RTC > advanced properties related to Archival.

Any way around to get the list of archived workitems in RTC?

Best Regards, Sunil

My understanding is that there is no way to archive a work item, and that the "archived" query term is just available for uniformity (because "archived" is defined for other artifacts, such as project areas and team areas).

Thanks Geoffrey!
the option seems to work only for 'false : I mean, archived=true as query term does not pull the list of archived workitems. Now, I understand why..

Thanks again!
