How to get value of an attibute from Parent workitem and apply to its child item?

deepti harinkhede (219) | asked Jan 11 '18, 4:31 a.m.


I am working on a project wherein 5 child workitems get created upon creation of a parent wotkitem. Next, we want to inherite the value of 'Found In' attribute in child work items from the parent work item's 'Found In' attibute.

Any reference on how to get/set the value of attributes from parent to child?

You will need to code this into a follow up action. If you create the child work items in such a follow up action, then you can set the found in based on the parents found in in one go.

See for a general approach.

No, JavaScript attribute customization is not an option.
I don't think you can code this into a work item template either, but not 100% sure.
