SI Project Fields
SI project fields allow users to specify a related configuration management project, optionally including a checkpoint revision or development path. By creating a configuration management project field and a computed field that uses the SIMetric() external information function, you can retrieve metrics about the specified project, for example, how many lines of code are in the project. For more information on creating configuration management project metrics, see “Using Configuration Management Project Metrics”.
Metrics are only maintained against project checkpoints; therefore, to generate metrics users must specify a checkpoint when they specify the configuration management project.
Configuration management project fields cannot be specified in any type of rule.
To allow users to specify a related configuration management project when creating or editing an item, you must enable and properly configure the workflow and document, and configuration management integration. You must restart the server for this change to take effect.
Deactivated development paths are not available to be selected.
