Pankaj Sharma (401169) | asked Nov 04 '15, 4:03 p.m.
I wanted to create a custom page on my RCT project area and display information about saved workitems, Is it possible to fetch data from from the database (db2), Is there any mapping i.e. what is the name of the table or column?

I would advise against this idea as:

  • The RTC database schema is not public, as such it could change; having looked at it some, the work item is a representation backed by many tables and the configuration of each project area.
  • You will have difficulty even making a connection to the database which would require that your RTC provider be willing to allow. 
  • Assuming you could get the connection, it will bypass all access safeguards enforced by RTC.  For this reason alone we have turned this kind of request aside [ I am on a team that provides RTC service to several thousand users ].
  • There are numerous work item reports and viewlets designed for the purpose of displaying information
Just my $0.02.

Hi Pankaj,

If you have your data in a dashboard widget you can export the widget and embed that in a web page.  Also, you can build a report in JRS and use the report URL in a page.
