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?

As I mentioned above you can find a version for the 3.0.1.1 M3 client in the first historical entry (r19) of the wiki entry. Works for me in the 3.0.1.1 GA. I do not know why it has been deleted.

Hi,

I see that the plug in is now part of the SDK package, however eclipse doesn't seem to find it. Do you know if there's SDK documentation regarding the Bulk Move WI between project areas feature?

IBM Folks:

Do you know where this plugin stands? Is this going to be standard functionality in the future?

I tried installing it today on my 3.0.1.1 Eclipse client and it did not work, when I needed it most.

Any update is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Vivek

Hi All,
            I copied the bulk move workitems plugin for 3.0.1.1 into the IMSHared and drop-ins folders as mentioned in the 1st comment. Then i restarted eclipse and ran the query. But when i select multiple work items, i am not able to find the move/copy to project area option. How to debug this? any other steps required?

Thanks.

Hi All, 

 I tried out the plugin for 3.0.1.1 and 3.0.1. But i think i am missing some steps as its not getting activated at all. I deployed it in
IMSHared folder and teamconcert client's dropins folder and restarted the eclipse, but no effect. Please share the steps and details on how we can debug?

Thanks.

Hi,

there are currently only downloads available for 2.x and 4.0. https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreasInRTC3 does not have any downloads, so currently there is no plugin available for 3.0 - I asked the author to get one. As long as there is no download for 3.x you can't use it there.

In addition: Read the page carefully it is crucial to install a client with the correct version for the downloads. You have to make sure to download the install for the correct/supported ifix. I would suggest to get a zip version of the Eclipse RTC client, in which case the files need to go into the jazz\client\eclipse\plugins folder (this is for RTC 4.0 but I would expect it to be true for 2.x as well as 3.x as soon as there is a download available).

I tried with 4.0 and these were the steps:
 - I downloaded for RTC 4.0 (version matters), zip version of RTC Eclipse client.
- I downloaded the zip file from https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/BulkMoveWorkItemsBetweenProjectAreasInRTC4 and unzipped it to a temporary folder.
- I searched for the jars com.ibm.team.workitem.common_3.1.0.v20120510_2207.jar and com.ibm.team.workitem.rcp.ui_3.1.0.v20120510_2207.jar in the unzipped RTC Eclipse client and found then in ......\jazz\client\eclipse\plugins
 - I copied the downloaded Jars from the zip into that folder and was rewarded with a warning I would overwrite existing jar's. I overwrote both files. This is very important, because the jar's have to replace the built in functionality.
 - I started the Client, connected to a project area, selected a bunch of work items and copy/move is now enabled.

At least with 4.0 I assume when pasting the Jars into the folder you should always see a warning that you have to overwrite/replace the existing files. If that does not come up I would assume you have the wrong Client version or the wrong folder.

I will post once I have an answer for 3.x

Thank you Ralph for your step by step description but we have still a problem.

We followed all the steps and replaced the indicated files. We restarted Eclipse but the copy/Move item in the pop up menu is still disable for multi select WI and enable for one.

Is the copy/move menu become automaticaly on or do we have to enable it with a specific manipulation.

Thanks in advance.
