Manually associating a Rational ClearCase element version with a work item

From a Rational® ClearCase® element version, you can manually create an association with one or more Rational Team Concert™ work items.

About this task

Complete the following steps to associate a Rational Team Concert work item with a Rational ClearCase element version from within the context of the element version. The element version that is associated with the work item is determined by the version selection rules of the base Rational ClearCase view that you are using in the Rational ClearCase Explorer perspective. If you are using a different perspective, the associated version is determined by the version selection rules of the Rational ClearCase view from which you loaded or imported files or folders.

Procedure

  1. Open a view that accesses Rational ClearCase element versions. For example, in the Rational ClearCase Explorer perspective (available when the Rational ClearCase Remote Client is installed), open the ClearCase Navigator.
  2. Right-click on a file or folder that is under Rational ClearCase version control and select Associate Work Items. If you are in a perspective that is not the Rational ClearCase Explorer, select Team > Associate Work Items. For example, navigate to a single view in the Rational ClearCase Navigator My Views folder, right-click a file within that view, and select Associate Work Items.
  3. In the work item list, select the work items to associate and click OK.

Results

The element version that is selected by the version selection rules for the accessed view is associated with the work items that you specified. For example, if you import files to the Eclipse Package Explorer from the myview view, and then select one of the imported elements to associate with a work item, the element version that is associated is determined by the version selection rules of myview.

What to do next

After you have created the link between a work item and an element version, you can navigate from one to the other. To remove the link between the work item and the version, right-click the version and select Remove Work Items. Select the work items that you want to remove from the list and click OK.

You can perform these actions for individual element versions in the Rational ClearCase History view.
