RTC Widget filter hides iterations with no Work Items mapped

Alexander Burk (257) | asked May 04 '17, 6:34 a.m.

Hello all,

if I add a IBM provided widget (like Open vs. Closed work items) to a dasboard in RTC, I can select some iterations as a filter. But the provided list of iterations does not include iterations that have no work items mapped to them yet.

Is this behavior expected?

Best regards,
Alex Burk

similar problem:

an iteration needs an assigned work item to show up in the filter list

That is actually a completely different problem in a completely different set of domains.

The data warehouse will only know items that qualify to be collected. As an example I have often seen questions why specific information e.g. a team area is not available for choice in a report. Usually that was, because there was no data associated to the team area, so it got ignored.

I would also assume that specific widgets will be implemented to not show stuff that does not need to be shown.

I don't know which of the two possibilities are contributing in your case and I don't know how to find that out.

You're right. I think the link above was a mistake, I found a post (can't find it atm) where someone pointed out that there needs to be associated data in the DW for the iteration (or anything else) to show up.
