Approvals creation using WI import in RTC

Praveen Chougala (31833) | asked Jul 06 '18, 8:03 a.m.

Hello Team,

I am trying to import WIs using CSV. i would like to create approvals as well in the Story WI.
but it is not creating Approvals alone, other attributes are being created.

Any idea on this use case?? or Am i missing something ? or it is not possible to created approvals by WI import?

I created a work item commandline automation and found it too complicated to support what you ask for. I gave up and I don't think the built in import will deal wit h that level of complexity.

Approvals are a quite complex object. It is unclear why you should even be able to import them. Worse you can not fake some of the auditable data eiter e.g. fake that John Doe approved without John Doe being logged in. So the whole concept does not necessarily make a lot of sense.
