how to create child workitems automatically when parent is created?


Satish Narayanachar (96311) | asked Nov 16 '17, 4:53 a.m.

Hi All,

Scenarios below.

1. Assume I have a workitem(Defect) created and it is assigned for product A then a child workitem(Task) shoud be creatred automatically with defect as parent.

2. if the same workitem(Defect) is assigned to mutliple products (product a, product B and product C) then 3 child workitems(Task) should be created assigned to different products A,B and C.

Is this achievable?
if yes, how can I achieve this?

Regards,
Satish

See my answer in https://jazz.net/forum/questions/206897/how-to-create-child-work-items-automatically-in-rtc
You will have to also create the parent/child link and add that to the save.

Start here with extensibility: https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/learning-to-fly-getting-started-with-the-rtc-java-apis/ There are numerous examples in posts around all the stuff you will have to look at.

Hi Ralph,

I was able to create the work item automatically when parent is created however I am not able to populate comments/tags from parent to child.

Any inputs?

Thanks,
Satish
