How can i copy a workitemtype between two projects


Frank Jungbeck (545) | asked Oct 01 '12, 9:13 a.m.
hello,

i started with a the wrong processtemplate and now i did not have the right workelementtypes. Is it possible to copy a workelementtype from another project or add an existing (f.e. Defect). I think there must be an possibilty because each workelementtype has an id ?

best regards
jungfr

Hi Frank,

there is no tool support for that, as far as i am aware of.

The data is XML and theoretically you could copy the data over, if you know which data needs copying. However, there is a lot of risk of missing pieces and messing up the process template. The official suggestion is to manually recreate the type in a project. I usually do things like that on a test system and the export the process as template, before instantiating the final project.

https://jazz.net/library/article/1077 describes another nice way how you can use process sharing to develop and maintain your process.
