Querying values from Links tab

Susan Hanson (1.6k2195194) | asked Jun 04 '12, 7:55 a.m.
Is there a way to build a query and/or display the values on the Links tab, such as ResolvedBy?

For example, I want to query all Unresolved work items of a certain type that have at least one workitem in the ResolvedBy links.

Can this be done?

I can do this it seems in the web client, but not the eclipse client. Is this a bug? Or will this be added in RTC 4.0?

Yes you can

In the eclipse client you can do the following:

Open the query editor. Select a new add condition, and and make sure you check the "Links" check box at the bottom (when choosing the attribute condition).

This will give you a "Resolved By" exists condition.

Hit run and it will display the matching work items in the work items view. Then you can press on the view menu (the small triangle in the corner of the view) and press on Relationships. Select the Resolved by.

You can now expand the work items and see the links

Hi Susan,

You could select column "Resolved By". This will display the link(s) as a column.

Try the query in Web client and not in eclipse
