Hello Jama Support Community:
I'm an employee here at Rockwell Collins Inc. I'm writing to inquire about "Sync Options" on Jama, read below to get context of the problem I'm facing.Let's say I have two System Requirements that are synced across two different projects (say project A and project B). Now, the Description of the two Requirements are identical, however, the Upstream Relationships are expected to always to different. Therefore, having Relationships as one of the fields being compared to determine the Sync Status seems to make the Sync Status useless, as all System Requirements now always show as being Out Of Sync. However, Sync Status is a really powerful feature we would REALLY like to harness, in order for that to be a possibility, what we need done, is exclude Relationships, Attachments, Tags, and Links while determining Sync Status. I'm not a Jama admin, however, I checked with one of the Jama admins at my company and he said that it is not possible, as Relationships are not one of the "User Created Fields" or something along those lines. So, I wanted to reach out to you guys to see if you had any more insight into this.I would really appreciate any help on this - thanks much! :)
I think that is a fantastic idea to do a project wide conversion to a new item type! However, my question is when an item's type is converted from one type to another, are there any repercussions you can think of? Such as losing history? Or, links or any other info loss?And, if I understand your solution correctly - you are suggesting that we create a new item type and roll it out to the entire company. But, for our projects, we convert the older item type to the newly created item type. And, common sense tells me that history would remain and no other information would be lost, but if you could confirm that, I think this might be THE BEST solution for us.Thanks a tonne!
