I'm interested in this option, too. Is it possible to bulk move work items from one project area to another?

 Hi Jazz-Community, 

Are you aware of the new Open Source Jazz-Community on GitHub? The DACH Jazz-Community has founded this in May.2017. And we have now published some nice enhancements for RTC. 

Have a look at 

One of the extensions is the WEB based RTC Bulk Work item Mover, our Company has implemented as OSS project. You find it on 

This Bulk Work item Mover allows you to move work items between project areas on same CCM Instance. The Work item Mover is process aware and allows you to map types, enumerations etc. during the process. 
There are a couple of quite common use cases where moving selected number of Work Items is necessary:

  • Moving to another process template: There are multiple approaches to move to a new process template. One of it is to create an entirely new project area from scratch. Easily transferring the existing work items to the new area without changing the identifier and links is a key requirement there.
  • Splitting or merging projects: From our experience, changes in project structure or team setup often need to be reflected in RTC. As a result, project areas might be split or merged, raising the need to move the affected work items.
  • Defect Management: If, by example, your application is based on a platform, your users or customers may file defects against your application project area where they do not belong. You can then move them to the platform project area, whereas the issuer of the defect will still be able to receive updates on this defect.
See more on the GitHub project. Ideas, Enhancement Request, Defects can be filed directly there as Issues. If you like to collaborate on the development, please join us in the Community.

        Please use the plugin for your RTC Version and follow instructions from wiki. I tried it on and it worked.
