reporting across item links


Gemma Bowers (1121) | asked Nov 13 '09, 5:22 a.m.
Hi,

I've used the tutorial "Custom report for reporting across item links in Rational Team Concert 2.0" to create a custom report.

I would like to create a similar report that has a master/details table. The master table will contain a set of work items, and then for each row I would like to list any work items that are linked (i.e. in the details table).

The tutorial makes use of a report parameter to define one work item of interest, and then finds all linked work items. However, in my case, I will have a work item ID for each row in the master table, for which I need to find all linked work items.

Can anyone suggest how I might do this?

Many thanks.

We have an example report that shows how to use nested tables to achieve
this kind of report. Check out the Work Progress report in our wiki page:

https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ReportsCentral

It demonstrates how to construct a tree of work items - in this case,
defined by parent-child links but you could modify it to use any kind of
links you like.

Hope this helps.
