Rearrange workitem types in RTC WorkItem Menu Bar


swapna das (3324872) | asked Jun 07 '16, 4:09 a.m.

Hi Team,

   In RTC UI , Menu ->Work Items ->Create Work Item , we are getting the workitem type list in a order , in which we have added the work item types in the tool. Can I  rearrange the order in Create Work Item. Is there any OOTB feature available in the tool.

Thanks in Advance,

Swapna Das

Hi, Swapna

In Eclipse client > Process Configuration Source, you can see the section(Scrum as example):
<configuration-data final="false" id="com.ibm.team.workitem.configuration.workItemTypes" xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.workitem/workitemTypes">

It shows defect and task(example) type as below:

 <type category="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType" icon="processattachment:/workitemtype/bug.gif" id="defect" name="Defect">
<alias name="bug"/>
</type>
 <type category="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.task" icon="processattachment:/workitemtype/task.gif" id="task" name="Task">
                    <alias name="work item"/>
                    <alias name="workitem"/>
                    <alias name="item"/>
</type>

If you change the order of the two types like:

<type category="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.task" icon="processattachment:/workitemtype/task.gif" id="task" name="Task">
                    <alias name="work item"/>
                    <alias name="workitem"/>
                    <alias name="item"/>
                </type>
                 <type category="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType" icon="processattachment:/workitemtype/bug.gif" id="defect" name="Defect">
                    <alias name="bug"/>
                </type>

Now you should see Task type of work item is at the top instead of Defect type, you can change the order for other types using the similar way.
Please make sure you have a backup first before doing any change in the source directly.

Thanks
