Hi,
I'm looking for a way to get the fully qualified name of a teamArea with the java api.
Can anybody tell me how to do this ? 

I have a workitem. From it, I've got the Category, and from the category, I can get the name of theTeamArea.
But how to get the fully qualified name of the teamArea (the full path of the team area in the team area hierarchy) ?

Note that a team area does not have a "pathname" ... it just has a unique ID.
It has a title, but the title doesn't identify the team area ... it just gives it a friendly name, which can be later changed and which is not guaranteed to be unique.

It would help if you explained what you were planning on doing with this information.

  Thanks for your answer.

But : 
In the REST API, if you search for a team Area, you can ask  for the "qualifiedName" attribute.
This "qualifiedName" is the path of the team in the teams hierarchy description.
In the  REST api documentation, for the team Area, we can read this : 

teamArea (type: com.ibm.team.process.TeamArea)

This element represents a Team Area.

Properties:

  • name (type: xs:string). The human-readable name of the project area (e.g. "My Team")
  • qualifiedName (type: xs:string). A fully-qualified team area name, slash-separated, including all parent team areas (e.g. "/My Parent Team/My Team").
I just want to get the "qualifiedName" through the java api, not by a REST api call...

Thanks for your help.

Still wondering about the question in my original comment ... once you have the qualifiedName, how do you plan on using it?

 The teams Hierarchy describe a organization. I want to split this "qualifiedName" in different parts and use those parts to know in what department, service, etc. the team is classified.

That makes sense, thanks.
