Why can't I search for tasks within the Visual Studio 2013 RTC 6.0 Plugin?


Bradley Lahr (62412) | asked Aug 06 '15, 12:43 p.m.
Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Version 12.0.31101.00 Update 4.
IBM Rational Team Concert Version: 6.0 Build: I6.0_20150519-0433 

Within the work item search box, I enter a task # which is known to exist.  Nothing appears.   I see this error when I turn on Team Concert Log.
