Move Bulk Work Items Betwee Project Areas

Guowei Jim Hu (1.0k610253) | asked Dec 09 '09, 9:33 a.m.
I tried to enable the Move/Copy Work Items to Project Areas for selected multiple work items from a query display.

Following the link https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreas


I've tried on my RTC 2.0 client installation from the zip file but had the same issue as below.

I then installed RTC 2.0 client on my existing 3.4.2 Eclipse at C:\Program Files\eclipse. Then I downloaded the patch.zip from https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreas

And copy the plugin into the following folder:
C:\Program Files\eclipse\dropins\com.ibm.team.workitem.rcp.ui_2.0.0.I200905141739.jar
C:\Program Files\IBM\IBMIMShared\plugins\com.ibm.team.workitem.rcp.ui_2.0.0.I200905141739.jar

I have to rename the original 2.0 rcp_ui plugin (com.ibm.team.workitem.rcp.ui_2.0.0.I200906081319.jar) to get the BulkMoveWorkItem picked up and show up in the runtime Plugin Registry.

But as soon as the BulkMoveWorkItem plugin is picked up, I can't run, edit and create any query anymore because of a loading error:
An internal error occurred during: "Loading".
com/ibm/team/workitem/common/expression/IQueryableAttributeFactory.findAllAttributes(Lcom/ibm/team/process/common/IProjectAreaHandle;Lcom/ibm/team/workitem/common/expression/IQueryableAttribute;Lcom/ibm/team/workitem/common/IAuditableCommon;Lorg/eclipse/core/runtime/IProgressMonitor;)Ljava/util/List;

But I need to select multiple work items from the query output. Run exiting query doesn't cause anything happing. Create or edit new query will give loading error.

Here are what in the log when I tried to edit an existing query but failed to load it. and it seems to me that there is a mismatch between the plugin's build env and the 2.0 runtime env.

I noticed the plugin was built for RTC 2.0 RC1. Is it matters or it is necesary to build the plugin again in an env. matching the RTC 2.0 client build and release? Or you have some other ways to solve this issue?

In case the next victim needs to know, Marcel from jazz team has rebuilt the BulkMoveWorkItem plugin against RTC 2.0.0.2RC1 and it is availble at https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreas

I have tried it on my 2.0.0.2RC1 client against 2.0 server and it works fine. You can actually bulk move up to 45 work items in one session.


This plugin doesn't seem to work anymore for my 2.0.0.2 iFix4 client. Anybody has the same problem?

The plugin as explained in the wiki page needs to be installed in exactly the version of the RTC client it was built to support. You can not just pick an arbitrary version.

Most of the clients are N-1 compatible to the server. Take a version of the plugin that is available and where the client version is smaller than the server version.

Hi Karl,
             As per my understanding, there's a limit on the number of workitems that can be moved using this plugin - I read it as 45 in a related post.

As for the progress of the move, would be possible if some debugging statements are put inside the plugin code.

Thanks.

Also, would it be possible to follow the progress of the move in eclipse ?

Hello There,

We are using this non PROD plugin to move our work items from projects to others.
When we do select a small amount of WI everthing is ok.
When we do select a important number of work item like 100, or 200 or 300 we do have error "Error running operation 'DependencyHAndler'. Inside the Error eclipse log we do also have this error message : "Long-running operations prohibited on this thread"

Any one can help ?

Many thanks.

Best regards.

Karl
