Hello,
I am having team structure as follows,
Project Area
   A
       Team A
              SubTeamA1
              SubTeamA2
       Team B
              SubTeamB1
              SubTeamB2
And categories are associated as follows,
Category Name              Associate with
SubTeamA1 ->               A/Team A/SubTeamA1
subTeamB1 ->               A/Team B/SubTeamB1

Likewise there are number of teams at following after A. I am developing value set plugin.
Now, I want a list of all categories under A(Start with A/...). How to get this?

Thanks in advance.

Hello Raplh,
Thanks for reply!!
I am having 3 level team hierarchy and my category associations are with third level team. So associations look like this,(considering above mentioned hierarchy)
Category Name
SubTeamA1 ->               A/Team A/SubTeamA1

When my category associations was with parent team like,
SubTeamA1-> Associates with        A
I had used below mentioned function and it was working for me.
List<ICategory> list2= workItemCommon.findCategoriesOfTeamArea(parentTeamProcessArea, ICategory.FULL_PROFILE, monitor);

But now, associations are with third level team. And I want to get all categories start with ParentTeam/... for a particular selected Parent team.

Kindly revert for any concerns.

Thanks.

If you want to do this kind of stuff, I would suggest to enable yourself to do it.

Start here: Setting up Rational Team Concert for API Development follow it and do the workshop to setup your SDK. Follow Understanding and Using the RTC Java Client API
and use https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2012/12/09/analyzing-a-aroject-areas-members-and-roles-using-the-plain-java-client-libraries/ to get the code above to work.
