How do I restrict delivery in only one type of work item?

Hi all. 
We need to allow the changeset/deliver only in the "Task" and prevent in other wi´s types.

It can do this?

I see https://jazz.net/forum/questions/74136/can-i-restrict-changeset-association-to-work-item-type, but no feedback was given.
My Version is 5.0.1.

There is a deliver precondition ("Require Work Items to Match Query") that lets you specify a query that must be satisfied by a work item in order for it to be delivered.   In particular, you can specify in that query that only work items of a specific type can be used.

Note that this does not help with the quoted question, which was to restrict change set association ... this precondition only applies to delivery, not change set association.

Hi Geoffrey. Tks for reply.  For delivery is sufficient.


I tried this before post my question.
Since this condition depends on a query, can only apply to a project area. I tried to do in my main area, where the share the configuration process, but did not work for the heirs.

How do I apply to all my project areas? (315 pa's).
It is possible through the process template?

In theory, that precondition should just be inherited by the child project areas.   But I did a quick check, and that inheritance appears to be broken.   I've submitted defect The Require-Work-Item-to-Match-Query precondition is not be inherited properly by child project areas (370964) for this problem.   The only workaround I found was to add that precondition directly to the child project area, referring to a query defined in that child project area ... which is clearly unacceptable.

Geoffrey, tks.
I will conclude this issue and track the defect.

I just noticed that the SCM team has scheduled defect 370964 to be fixed in the current development sprint (6.0.1 Sprint 5) ... so another reason to upgrade to 6.0.1 when it is released (:-).

Just to clarify the comment above (for any readers). Work Item 370964 was only delivered in RTC 6.0.3 Sprint 1.
