Custom attributes not available via web interface

Hi,

I have configured custom attributes and they are available via RTC
client; I have open the web interface and surprisingly I don't see them -
did I miss something?

Hi Roman,

what are the types of the custom attributes? Did you configure the editor presentation to include them? In Beta2 the Web UI does not yet support all attribute types and there is no "Custom" tab that shows custom attributes that are not configured to be shown elsewhere.

Regards,

Christof

I have created https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/WorkItem/43392
which describes the currently supported types and the ones that are not
supported yet.

Hi Christof,

the attributes (strings) have following specification:
<customAttributes category="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training">

<customAttribute id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.kind"
name="Kind" type="string"/>

<customAttribute id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.country"
name="Country" type="string"/>

<customAttribute id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.hotel"
name="Hotel" type="string"/>

<customAttribute
id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.flightticket" name="Flight
ticket" type="string"/>

<customAttribute
id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.refreshment"
name="Refreshment ordered" type="string"/>

<customAttribute
id="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.invoicedcustomer"
name="Invoiced to customer" type="string"/>

</customAttributes>


I have configured the presentation like this:
<configuration-data
id="com.ibm.team.workitem.editor.configuration.workitemTypeEditorIdBinding"
xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.workitem.editor/workitemTypeEditorIdBinding">

<workitemTypeEditorIdBinding
workitemType="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training"
editorId="com.ibm.team.workitem.editor.default" />

</configuration-data>



I have extended existing presentation:

<configuration-data
id="com.ibm.team.workitem.editor.configuration.presentations"
xmlns="http://com.ibm.team.workitem.editor/presentations">

<section id="com.ibm.team.workitem.section.details">

<presentation kind="com.ibm.team.workitem.kind.separator"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.kind"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.country"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.hotel"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.flightticket"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.refreshment"/>

<presentation
attributeId="com.ibm.team.workitem.workItemType.training.invoicedcustomer"/>

</section>

I'm getting following error:
https://jazz.net/jazz/web/projects/Jazz%20Project#action=com.ibm.team.workitem.viewWorkItem&id=43498


What is wrong?

This seems to be a problem (and bug) with the workflow. You might be able to work around it by specifying a workflow for the work item types. (See https://jazz.net/learn/LearnItem.jsp?href=content/docs/work-items/index.html for a simple example workflow and how to bind it to work item types)

Hi Christof,

it was the workflow issue; however, I still don't see the attributes
via web ui.

There is also one work item having no action available (the action box looks
like when you have created an item not yet saved: uninitialized).

Any idea?

The presentation does not seem to work properly in this case, I'd suggest to continue the discussion in https://jazz.net/jazz/resource/itemName/WorkItem/43392.

The missing actions in one of the work items is likely due to the work item having been created before you configured the workflow.
