I need to update state of RTC Defect on save operation. For example, If user has moved status to "Reopen", description should be updated with "Reopen template" automatically. To achieve this I tried to create IWorkItemPostSaveParticipant Plugin as follow :

public class CheckSave extends AbstractService implements IWorkItemPostSaveParticipant{

HttpResponse response;

HttpClient httpclient;

public static final String WI_TYPE = "wiType"; //$NON-NLS-1$

public static final String WORKFLOW_ACTION = "workflowAction";

public void run(ISaveParameter saveParameter) throws TeamRepositoryException


IWorkItem workItem = (IWorkItem) saveParameter.getNewState();

if (workItem != null) {

StringBuffer res = new StringBuffer();

res.append("Got a workItem with data [");

res.append("Duration=" + workItem.getHTMLDescription() + "\n");

res.append("Id=" + workItem.getId() + "\n"); // object


workItem.setHTMLDescription(XMLString.createFromPlainText("Added from plugin"));


On deploy, plugin does not get loaded.

I think u started with the wrong base class

here is from one of mine

public class WorkItemFailAdvisor extends AbstractService implements IOperationAdvisor{

Thanks for the reply. For precondition I am using IOperationAdvisor which works fine, but on precondition plugin we can not update the state of workitem. I need to create a plugin for followup action which is triggered on post save so that I can update the state of workitem.
