Work Item Template

Brad Morse (233) | asked Jul 07 '21, 1:14 p.m.

 I was reading about work item templates. Seems this makes it possible to create a custom work item and create a template from that work item. I'm hoping the template can then be imported by another project area creating that new work item type in this project area.

But, I am getting the following error:
"The template contains references to repository items and should neither be used with other repositories nor in a process template."

When I created the custom work item I created from a Task and customized. I read somewhere that creating custom attributes and saving in process specification may give issues. Is this why the above warning?

work item templates are meant to be able to define a structure of one or more work items of various types, that gets created using the template. The template is not a means to import a work item type into another project area. There is no official means that would allow to do the latter.
