Creating a synchronized stream work item template

During synchronizations, the ClearCase Synchronizer automatically generates work items to associate synchronized changes with. If you are using a process such as Scrum that requires certain fields in a work item to be set in order to deliver change sets that are associated with that work item, then you must create a work item with appropriate field settings for the ClearCase Synchronizer to use as a template when generating work items during synchronizations.

About this task

Note: The term work item template as it is used by the ClearCase Synchronizer is not the same as the term that is used in the work item component for defining a set of work items that can be instantiated by the user. (For this other use of the term work item template, see Using a template to create work items.)

During each synchronization, a work item is created for the changes that are brought over from Rational® ClearCase®. The synchronized stream work item template is used to generate this work item. Each generated work item gets a new ID, but its other fields are initialized by the corresponding field in the synchronized stream work item template. You can modify the generated work items after the synchronization is complete.

The synchronized stream work item template must be created in the same project area as the synchronized stream with which you want to associate it. You can set the synchronized stream work item template during ClearCase Synchronized Stream creation by using the New ClearCase-Synchronized Stream wizard, or you can set the template for an existing stream by using the Synchronized Stream Editor.

Procedure

To set up a synchronized stream work item template for an existing ClearCase Synchronized Stream:

  1. Create a work item in the same project area as the synchronized stream. Specify values for the required fields and any other fields that you want to be initialized in the generated work items.
  2. In the ClearCase-Synchronized Streams view, right-click the stream that you want to set the synchronized stream work item template for, and click Open to open the Synchronized Stream Editor.
  3. Click the Team Concert tab.
  4. In the Work Item Template area, click Associate a work item, select the synchronized stream work item template from the list in the Select Work Items window, and click OK.
