Bulk edit more than 100 work items

Postby phil » Wed Oct 20, 2010 9:51 am

Hello,

i created 250 requirements for my company but forgot to set the requirement flag at each work item. Since bulk edit doesn't allow multi edit of more than 100 work items is there another way to accomplish that task?

kind regards
phil

You can use the webservice interface to edit them. It is not a trival task though.

Retrieving this post from the dead. Is there any roadmap to allow bulk edit of an arbitrary number of work items?

Here's what I do (Polarion calls it "bulk edit in chunks" and provides an easy way to trim your selection):

First, build a filter for the WIs you need to edit (giving you the 250 items), including the "wrong" value of the flag and save it (you're going to need it later). Then:

* select them all (eg. in the Tracker view)
* Use the "Trim your selection" link provided by Polarion to select the first 100:

* Make your change (set the flag) in the lower ("Details") section of the screen
* Save these 100

Re-run the filter (it should give you 150 items now) and do the whole thing again, and one last time for the last 50. Done!
