triggers in RTC


sara chason (274) | asked Jan 30 '17, 2:46 a.m.

Is it possible to create some sort of "triggers" in RTC for these uses:

1. un-link invalidate stories from their parent feature so their story points don't calculate as part of the feature's progress.
2. make "Time Remaining" field = 0 once a task is done.
3. subscribe all team members that are are part of the "category" field chosen in defects.
for now we implemented these through RTC Client Plain Java Lib but I'm looking for an internal solution in RTC other than an external one.

 All the above use cases can be implemented using follow up actions participants. See https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/03/14/what-apis-are-available-for-rtc-and-what-can-you-extend/ for general information. Follow the links inside. https://jazz.net/library/article/1000 explains the setup and how participants work.

but this solution is still an outside solution. what exactly is the difference between this solution and using RTC Client Plain Java Lib and triggering it every x times?

 A participant is a server JAVA extension. You can not be more inside.

 just for further understanding - it's still an extension you add to the client and not part of the project configuration right?

 No, you don't add it to the client and it has to be configured in the project areas process configuration. It is a Extension to the server. Read the information and follow the workshop.
