Plan level work item in builds


Karthikeyan Narayanan (2623) | asked Jan 26 '17, 3:13 p.m.

How does one include plan level work items in the build result? If the change sets are attached to Task (execution level) work items and are children of plan level work item (Story, PCR), the Story or PCR are not tagged in the build results. Without knowing the plan level work item that went into a build, how does one test know the linked test case to test after the build? Am I missing anything basic in this typical usage scenario? What is the typical use case for tracking the plan level work item and following thru with testing in RQM? Please advise. Thanks

The work items included in a build are retrieved by comparing the snapshot created by the current build and the snapshot created by previous successful build. So it's not possible to include the parent work items in the build.

Alternatively you can consider to write a custom program to retrieve the parent work items of the work items included in the build, and then create "Included in Build" link using API. You could found some discussion about creating the "Included in build" link via API, such as:
