Hi Guys,

How to check if I have the read/write access to a work item ?

What I am trying to do..?

I am trying to add tags to a work item through java. RTC doesn't give me any error. It just doesn't update that field when I see it in the web UI. But when I try to modify it in the web UI, it does mention an error saying I have only read access to it.

This use case can happen when "User is just a member of the project area without any roles in that team area the work item belongs to".

I feel detection of read/write access to a work item would solve my problem.


Any suggestions...?

There is nothing like a read only mode for work items as such. There are some mechanisms to prevent you from changing data. Which one might be clearer if the error message in the Web UI, especially the details where provided here. Mechanisms I would be aware are missing permission to save and modify work item attributes due to the role. Read only attributes should prevent you from even entering data.

Hi Ralph,
Thanks for your response. Sorry I was unaware of that.
As you said I do not have permission to save the work item. How do I detect it ?

Regards,
Arshad
