Unable to copy RTC workitem description using javascript


Hareesh Jairaj (832138) | asked Jun 04 '15, 11:57 a.m.
Hi, 

 

I am trying to copy the RTC WI description value to a medium string / Html box using the script attached and it is not working.

 

dojo.provide("com.example.common.MyClass");

dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes");

 

(function() {

dojo.declare("com.example.common.MyClass", null, {

 

    getDefaultValue: function(attributeId, workItem, configuration) {

     

        var value =  workItem.getValue(workItemAttributes.DESCRIPTION);

        return value;

   

    }

  

});

})();

       

The Same script is working between two custom attributes.

       

I tried replacing the description attribute id as wee, no luck !

       

Any help on this is much appreciated.

I created a calculated Value with the below script based on yours and set  it to a custom attribute: medium string or HTML and this works for me:

dojo.provide("com.example.common.MyClass");

dojo.require("com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes");
(function() {
var WorkItemAttributes= com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes;
dojo.declare("com.example.common.MyClass", null, {

    getValue: function(attributeId, workItem, configuration) {

        var value =  workItem.getValue(WorkItemAttributes.DESCRIPTION); 
   
         return value;

    }
});

})();

 Hi Don Yang,


Thank you, This code is working fine.

When compared, I found the below line is the only difference from my script.
var WorkItemAttributes= com.ibm.team.workitem.api.common.WorkItemAttributes;

Can you please explain how this line makes the difference.

Thanks in advance
Hareesh.

Hareesh,

Glad to know it works for you.
In your codes, you use var value =  workItem.getValue(WorkItemAttributes.DESCRIPTION);  in which WorkItemAttributes is used but it is not defined.
Thanks
