Add the Parents Traced Item Info in the Child Item

OVERVIEW

In some cases, you may wish to display the traced information of its Parent Node in one of its child Item Node

For example: 

DOC (DOC-xxxx)  is traced with say 3 DMS Items and 1 DOC Item

There are Paragraphs/Headings inside the DOC as the child nodes. In one of the child node, I wish to embed filter that lists the traced data of DOC-xxxx

CREATE FILTER
  1. Select the Project
  2. Select the Filter For – All Items
  3. User defined Criteria: V.RelationInd = ‘Y’ AND ((select count(*) from OBJECT_RELATIONS where ( (Obj_Source =(select obj_key from objects where id=(select root_document from OBJECTS where id=[$ME])) AND obj_target=v.obj_key) OR (obj_target=(select obj_key from objects where id=(select root_document from OBJECTS where id=[$ME])) AND Obj_Source =v.obj_key)))>0)

Embed this Filter in the Child Node.

In order to list the 3 DMS Items and 1 DOC Item, we need to make the change in the Embed Filter.

  • Edit the Item Description
  • Click on Source icon from the Description Toolbar
  • Search for the Embed filter using the Embed filter name (here Embed Filter name is DOC to DOC)
  • Add the Work Item codes in the obj-type separated by comma (Do not give space when adding multiple work items)

<p><a name=”FILTER_168″ obj-type=”DOC,DMS” version_id=”16″>DOC to DOC</a></p>

Linked DEFECT Items are not listed even added in obj-type as work item filter is not shared with Defect work item.
