Concatenating field values for the work item category mapping

Some IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® record types might concatenate values from multiple fields to represent the Jazz work item category.

About this task

For example, a change request record might have product and component fields whose combined values represent the work item category path. To express this in the mapping, specify the field names that compose the category path. Separate the field names with the slash character.


  1. Open the mapping file in an XML editor.
  2. Use the sourceID parameter to specify the ClearQuest field names. Use the targetID parameter to specify the work item category attribute. For example:
    <attribute sourceId="Product/Component" targetId=""/>

What to do next

Continue customizing the mapping file as necessary. See Customizing the mapping file.
