Creating iteration plans in process templates


Simon Gerlach (122) | asked May 25 '08, 11:18 a.m.
Hi there,

When defining a process template, is there any possibility to create an iteration plan while initialization of a project area build on this template?

Within a process template work-items can be created when initializing the server. If iteration plans can be created as well, how can these work-items be automatically assigned to an itearation plan by a specification in the process template?

Thx in advance

Simon

The "Setup Project" initializer doesn't currently support creating
iteration plans.

We support creating work items because it is common that after creating
a project area from a template, there is still some manual work to do to
complete the project setup (for example, assigning members to your teams
and setting up your work item categories).

You can file a work item to request this support, but I'm not sure that
it would really make sense to automate this. Any number of project areas
can be created from a template and I wouldn't expect any two projects to
have the same iteration plan. If there's a case where this would really
be useful, please mention it in the work item.
