How can I subscribe a set of users to a work item, but only when assigned to a certain Team Area or Category?


Andrew Galpin (111) | asked Feb 04 '16, 9:44 a.m.
I would like to automatically subscribe a set of users to a work item, if its is filed against a certain team area.

e.g. When I create a defect against Team 1, I want XYZ users to be subscribed. When I create a defect against Team 2, I don't want those users to be subscribed.

Auto-subscribing to a type of work item is covered here: http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21580771

Is the only using the API?

I'm using Rational 5.0.2.

there is no mechanism to do this in the product. you will have to write a server side extension to make this work.

see Ralphs blog, I think there is a sample of something like this..

I also commented on the enhancement that we should do this open source asn IBM will probably never get to it.

Thanks for confirming that Sam, I am familiar with the rsjazz blog so will continue to take a look down that path.
