Can I restrict changeset association to work item type?


David Dulling (137109) | asked Mar 21 '12, 12:14 p.m.
Hi.

Can anyone tell me if RTC allows me to restrict the association of change sets to particular work item types?

For example, of the various work item types available, I might want to prevent anyone performing source code changes and associating them with (say) Stories, Epics etc.

I've looked everywhere but am unable to find anything obvious

n.b. I'm using 30.1.2

Thanks

David

There is no built-in functionality to provide this functionality, but associating a change-set with a work item is a process-enabled operation, so you should be able to implement your own process precondition to ensure change-sets are not associated with certain work item types. But this will not provide GUI guidance when selecting work items to a associate, so you might want to submit an enhancement request for that.

Cheers,
Geoff

Hello, Geoff

Thanks for the rapid feedback on this. I'll certainly look to raise the enhancement request

Cheers

It seems there's a new precondition to address this use case in release 4.0M7

Hi David,

Do you know if this is confirmed yet? We're currently using RTC 4.0 but have not been able to see this new precondition.

Thanks,
KH

David was probably thinking about the precondition that prevents delivery ... there is no control of this kind for associating a change-set to a work item.

 A built in option is to use the "Require Work Items to Match Query" precondition on deliver server in later versions of RTC.
