Different reports in Web Client and Eclipse


Achim Schneider (1132) | asked Apr 20 '10, 10:56 a.m.
Hi,

I just had a surprizing item reported to me which I do not understand and maybe someone can shed a light on this one

We have a sprint for which we can show the burndown in the WEB client and in the eclipse client - and they are TOTALLY different
I thought both are based on the same data?
We are on 2.0.0.2 without any IFix

Update: I just found that the team organization had an additional sub-team which was linked to the overall plan - after fixing this the plan in the Web Client is correct now -- still the question is why the information was shown differently...

Regards,
Achim

They are indeed based on the same data, and should be displayed the same.

First thing to check: In the rich client, in the team artifacts view,
pull down the local triangle-shaped menu and look for "Show Archived".
The report will honour the setting of this menu item - if it's on, then
we will include archived data in the report (that is, work items in
archived team areas, or targeted to archived iterations, etc); if it's
off, we filter that data out. In the web UI there is no such global
setting (although we do have this checkbox in the left navigation
panel), so by default you always see the archived data.

This could account for the difference in behaviour - can you try this
out and see?
