How can I retrieve the values from Found In (aka Releases defined) in order to populate a custom attribute


Denise Lindsey (133) | asked Jul 18 '17, 6:39 p.m.

My client has the need to add a custom attribute "Release ID" for a defect.  I would like to populate this field with the Releases that are currently stored in the RTC built-in Found In attribute, versus having the customer (or me) have to manually add new Releases in 2 places.

Is this possible to populate the new custom enumeration field automatically/programmatically based on the Found In values?

Thanks for you help!

it shouldn't be any different from other attributes. You can access the Found In attributes as WorkItemAttributes.FOUND_IN if you are going to use JavaScript.

Depending on your use case, you may choose Default Value or Calculated Value.
