New attributes not showing up in existing work Items.

Sarthak Sharma (4711520) | asked Jul 19 '12, 2:05 a.m.
When the new attributes are being added to the WorkItems , It is getting reflected in new Work Items but for old work items it is not getting reflected. But the plugin which I have created is not working for old Work Items. But this should not happen.
What can be done to make the new attributes visible on new Work Items.

Please consider reading: and the two other parts. They describe a lot of things that are well hidden.Synchronize Attributes being one of them.

 You need to Synchronise the old work items.
This requires the eclipse client.  Run a "All Workitems" query.  Select the work items of interest.  Do a right click on the icon representing the work item type on the left hand side of the query result view and one of the options should be "Synchronise".  Select that option.
