Is There A Way To Reorder the Drop Down Items Under "Work Items"?


Rob Olsen (351751) | asked Jun 03 '15, 10:54 a.m.
So another simple request but not sure if it can be done.  This is more of a cosmetic fix, but when I added a couple of new options to Work Items, they defaults to the end of the list.  The customer would like to see them be the first ones in the list.  Is there a way to do this?

 Yes, you can reorder.

You need to modify the order that they are declared on the process xml configuration.

Thanks for the reply.  So using the RTC Client, I bring up the Project and click on the "Process Configuration" tab.  I am looking for the "Process XML Configuration" option, or is this changed on the actual server?

 You are looking for the "Process Configuration Source" tab.


On the xml you need to find the follow tag:
<configuration-data xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.workitem/workitemTypes" id="com.ibm.team.workitem.configuration.workItemTypes">

And order the <type> children elements

Thanks!  I wish there was a better way to edit that XML then search through it all, but  did find it and made the change.
