Defining a custom work item type


Vibha Sinha (1643610) | asked Oct 08 '08, 5:12 p.m.
Hi

I was modifying the process template to define my custom work item type.

I wanted help in the following scenarios -

1) The workitem type needs to have some attributes which have multiplicity 1 to many. How do I specify these in the template and also how to define the corresponding editor presentation ?

2) Is there any way I can group together some of the custom attributes into a type and then define a single attribute in my work item type to refer to this type. Again this attribute can have multiplicity 1 or many.

3) The work item type can be linked to only specific type of other work item types. How do I restrict what artifacts types a work item can be linked to ?

Thanks

We currently support only custom attributes of primitive types and
enumerations, all with a multiplicity of 1.

https://jazz.net/learn/LearnItem.jsp?href=content/docs/work-items-cust/index.html

There are two presentations (Multi-select list and checkbox) that may
help with the multiplicity 1 problem in the case of enumerations, however.

Expanding Work Item Customization -- among other things to overcome
these current restrictions -- is high on the priority list for 1.1.

3) The work item type can be linked to only specific type of other
work item types. How do I restrict what artifacts types a work item
can be linked to ?

You can restrict the link types themselves somewhat by using
permissions. But finer-grained control over the work item types on the
other side of the link is currently not possible to my knowledge.

Please open an enhancement request for this.
