Using work items and team process with Engineering Workflow Management source control
Engineering Workflow Management source control is integrated with the Team Process and Work Items components of the Jazz® technology platform. Various Engineering Workflow Management source control operations, especially for delivering change sets, interact with one or both of these components.
About this task
The Jazz technology platform includes a Team Process component that provides team leaders with a set of mechanisms that they can use to control how team members interact when they modify team artifacts. It also includes a Work Items component that provides a generalized mechanism for assigning work and tracking it through the system. Because Engineering Workflow Management source control enables team members to modify shared resources such as components and streams, it is integrated with the Team Process component to provide constraints and guidance for change flow. It is also integrated with the Work Items component to link change sets with activities such as feature development or defect fixing, and to provide a narrative context that accompanies the change set as it flows through the system.
