How to pass additionalSaveParameters to save process item operation


SEC Servizi (93622142) | asked Mar 20, 12:19 p.m.
IWorkItemServer#saveWorkItem3 provides additional param additionalSaveParameters that can be retrieved back via ISaveParameter#getAdditionalSaveParameters from an AdvisableOperation.
IProcessService#saveProcessItem doesn't provide additional param additionalSaveParameters.
IProcessService#saveProcessItem3 (or IProcessService#saveProcessItem2 too) similar to IWorkItemServer#saveWorkItem3 doesn't exist yet.
Anyone knows how to pass additionalSaveParameters to save process item operation?
Thanks in advance.
Cheers.

For work items, you can also add additional save parameters using com.ibm.team.workitem.client.WorkItemWorkingCopy#getAdditionalSaveParameters()#add().


This seems to also not be available for process items. I think it is not designed for such complex scenarios.

We opened Enhancement 478541.

Aren't additional save parameters already present on every AdvisableOperation?

Each operation has a different interface that is used to pass data. So the answer to your question in the comment is NO.


If you check you will find that you have to cast to the operational parameter type. I was only able to find getAdditionalSaveParameters on

com.ibm.team.workitem.common.ISaveParameter

You're right, I missed that. :(
Thank you, Ralph.
Cheers.

We see AdvisableOperation always has #setOperationConfigurationInfo and #setReportData. In your opinion, could we think to use (as a giant hack, we guess) these methods to pass additional info to our save process item operation?

I think this is risky at best and can not provide suggestions. I can not even see if you can pass information using that.
