locked custom attribute for old work items


Baris Erdemir (1812819) | asked Jun 13 '11, 1:37 p.m.
Hi,
In an ongoing project, I have hundreds of work items openning per day.
I added a custom attribute (enumeration) to one of my custom workitems.
Now, I cannot set a value to the custom attribute, in the items that are created before the addition date of custom attribute.
I can set a value in the new work items, but for older work items, the new custom attribute field is always locked.
Is it possible to set a value to old workitems? (Even by extending RTC?)
Thank you very much.

Hi Baris

please check this (excellent ;-)! ) post: http://phkrief.wordpress.com/2010/12/14/update-existing-the-work-item-editor-with-the-new-custom-attributes/

It should answer to your first question...

For the second question, you can set a default value for the older WIs by using the "Edit Multiple Work Items" feature available since RTC 2.x?.

I hope it will help

Thanks for sharing. This helps us, too.

The tricky point is on right-click the Type icon . if you right-click on any other column, you will not be able to find it

Really strange (and annoying!), isnt' it? :shock:
