Hi All,

I have requirement to create customized work item of Change Request in which i need to set multiple centers(Locations) on which the same Change Request will be deployed for this i will be creating child work items equivalent to selected centers of the Change Request work item because every center would have a different workflow BUT the problem is when the Change Request reach to Approved state then i need start workflow of child work item and for that reason i need to first copy complete data which is inside Parent Change Request work item to all the child work items automatically.

I hope problem is stated correctly, kindly please me out guys to implement such requirement.

SAJJAD.

there is no mechanism to do what you want built in.  a Workitem Template can create a set of workitems,  but it is pre-confiured to be the exact same set each time.

you will have to write some extension. I don't think you can do all that with a javascript extension, only java

Do you have any kind of helping material for such kind of requirement actually i have a developer but i don't know how to start, what is the procedure for writing extension for such requirement and its really difficult to make developer understand about how he can  implement such requirement.

I will be grateful to you if you have any document/guide etc then please send to the sajjadalikhan@msn.com

see the extensions workshop

https://jazz.net/library/article/1000

the hardest part of the development process is learning the class library, which is not documented for server side extensions.  Ralph has a good blog with lots of examples of pieces you will need.
