Access value sets from Script Base Calculated Value


Elia Gaglio (263) | asked Apr 17 '15, 6:30 a.m.
Hi,
i'm developing an extension that uses these objects:

1) a set a value sets with a set of specific values;
2) a Script Base calculated value

When the user select the value for the custom attributes that use value sets, the script base calculated value has been activated. This script should read all the possible value of a specific custom field and return that value.

The code of the script follow:

/*******************************************************************************

*******************************************************************************/
dojo.provide("it.gvb.calculatedValue.readCompetenceCenterIdValues");
dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes");

(function() {
    dojo.declare("it.gvb.calculatedValue.readCompetenceCenterIdValues", null, {

        getValue: function(attribute, workItem, configuration) {
       
        var result = "";
        var competenceCenterId = workItem.getValue("it.gvb.customattribute.competenceCenterId"); // here i should read ALL the values for the custom field that use a value set


var itApplicazioniInterne = "it.gvb.enumeration.competenceCenter.literal.l6";
var dataGovernanceUnit = "it.gvb.enumeration.competenceCenter.literal.l4";

if (competenceCenterId.toLowerCase() == itApplicazioniInterne.toLowerCase()) {
result = "IT-ApplicazioniInterne";
} else
  if (competenceCenterId.toLowerCase() == dataGovernanceUnit.toLowerCase()) {
  result = "DataGovernanceUnit";
  }

console.log("competenceCenterId: " + competenceCenterId);
console.log("result: " + result);

return result;

        }
    });
})();


Any idea? Could someone give more info of how read all values returned from the value set?
Thanks!

As far as I know, you can only access the actual attribute values and not the set of potential values in a calculated value JavaScript. I don't know how you would be able to even find the value set provider for another attribute, if there is one.

There are many limitations in JavaScript attribute calculation, e.g. you can't access the roles of a user, you can't iterate the team area structure and the like. JavaScript is only good for basic customization.

Hey Ralph,

Something other than this question.
From where did you get the "Timebox Planning Tool"?

Greetings

Guido showed it on an event we had with them and he invited me once they were able to share it.
