Technote (troubleshooting)


Attempts to add an iteration group in cross project plan results in "TypeError: _14.getItemType is not a function" error with IBM Rational Team Concert.


In the web UI, the following error is seen:

TypeError: _14.getItemType is not a function


This has been identified as a product defect under APAR PM95941

Diagnosing the problem

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a cross-project plan

  2. Configure the display of the plan view to "Display > Tree > Contributes To > Tracks"

  3. Create a task

  4. Click on the 'Actions' drop down icon in front of the task. Select Add Link > Track

  5. Select to track a work item from another CCM repository

  6. Save change to the plan

  7. Edit the plan view. Add 'Group' > 'Iteration'. Confirm the error occur.

Expected Result: Adding the Iteration group configuration should not result in error and it should be handled. The plan configurations can be saved even after the error and reloading the plan does not throw any error. The error when modifying the plan configuration gives the perception that there is something wrong.
Actual Result: Updating the plan configuration should not throw any error
