Hi,

I know that there are method like WI.getid() and WI.getWorkItemType() etc to get the informations about the work items.

But I want to get the workitems name and Category of the WIs (Which we are providing when creating our custom work items)

Any API is there?

Thanks
Muthu

Hi Muthukumar,


you get only the identifyer of the work item type. To get more details on the type itself you need to get the work item type and look at its data. This pattern is very common in the API.

        IWorkItemCommon wCommon=getService(IWorkItemCommon.class);
        wCommon.findWorkItemType(projectArea, workItem.getWorkItemType(), monitor);
        workItemType.getCategory();
        workItemType.getAliases();

Hi, I am not sure I understand the question.
Here some forum posts that show some areas of the work item API: http://www.google.com/search?q=customString+site%3Ajazz.net&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a

Ralph,

 I want to get the detail which we will provide during the new CUSTOM WORK ITEM ADD

Process Configuration --> Configuration Data --> Work Items --> Types and Attributes --> Click on any Work Item type.

There will be three columns Name, ID and Category.

workitem.getWorkitemType() method will return the ID. But I want to get the Name and Category through Java API

NOTE : I am using Server side plug-in
