How to report on custom enumerations in Rational Team Concert workitems using Rational Publishing Engine

Technote (FAQ)


How do you report on Rational Team Concert (RTC) custom enumerations in Rational Publishing Engine (RPE)?


The href passed by RTC to RPE to establish the value of a custom enumeration is from the Open Services For Lifecycle Collaboration Application Programming Interface (OSLC API).
Currently, RPE cannot resolve this reference.


In the RPE template, a condition can be created which compares the enumeration's internal literal value at the workitem level (workitem/workItem/allExtensions/smallStringValue) to the value defined by the user for the custom enumeration at the project level (workitem/projectArea/enumerations/literals/id).

  • In RTC 2011, use smallStringValue.
  • In RTC 2012, use mediumStringValue.

A sample template is attached.
