How can i get the "Filed Against" from a work item on rtc?

 I need to get the value of the Filed Against, but when i get the category is not the string im looking for.

Any idea?

How do you get it? What do you expect? What do you see instead?

 I need to bring the name of the project area to which a workiyem belongs, if I do workitemstate.getCategory (). ToString () I get a handle and there is not the filed against name

 There seem to be multiple issues here:
- You say that you want the name of the project area, so you would need to query the project area of a work item, not the category.

- If you need full category info, you have to request it:

ICategory category = (ICategory) repositoryItemService.fetchItem(categoryHandle, null);

I would strongly recommend to get yourself familiar with the basics on how to work with the Jazz API by reading some posts on Ralph's Blog first (
