Issue/Introduction

HP ALM WIC connector: When a WorkProduct is being linked to an artifact in Rally, the following error was seen:

"Could not find Rally WorkProduct with FormattedID"

This occurred because the WorkProduct being linked was not in the list of projects contained in the config file.

 

 

Environment

Release : SAAS

Component : AGILE CENTRAL

Resolution

It is possible to link artifacts from other projects when performing a copy or update on a Test from HP ALM.  To do this use the following syntax (of course you will replace the project names for yours.) in the <RallyConnection> Section.:

<Projects>
      <Project>CH-1</Project>
      <Project>CH</Project>
      <Project>CH44444</Project>
 </Projects>

The project listed first will be the project the Test Cases will be created in.  If you have user stories in other projects you would like to link to, it will be necessary to list them in the projects section.
