Adding a link to a work item from a lightweight Work Item Creation Dialog


Yuval Zaltz (1134) | asked Dec 12 '12, 7:42 a.m.

Working on RTC 4.0

I'm trying to add a link between a work Item I create througt the Lightweight Work Item Dialog and an Artifact (e.g. a ClearQuest Defect).

I have customised the com.ibm.team.workitem.lightweight.editor.section and added the Links Presentation.

When I activate the Lightweight Dialog in the Eclipse client  (Through the CC-RTC Bridge). and click "Add Related Change request" Nothing happens

(to debug I've replaced com.ibm.team.workitem.lightweight.editor.section  with the com.ibm.team.workitem.section.links - and was unable to get any link related dialog when clicking the Add button)

I assume that the Lightweight Dialog blocks creation of sub dialogs, but I didn't find any documentation about it.
Is it passable to customize the the lightweight Work Item Creation dialog behavore so it can enable adding Links to Artifacts (and other Items) ?

Hello Yuval, 

it is possible to customize the lightweight creation dialog. The only important thing to know is that you can neither add more sections to it nor move the existing section to a different slot. Just leave the "Lightweight Creator" section untouched and add new or modify the contained presentations. 

If you add a "Links" presentation to it you'll be able to see the presentation in the dialog but it currently fails to add new links. This is a known defect in RTC and will be fixed in the next iteration. We're tracking the effort in Links not working properly in lightweight work item creation dialog (240130).

HTH,
Jan.
