How to change Application Area of a component programmatically?
This is only possible using Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) API, called Open Test Architecture (OTA), via the asset relation between the component ID and the resource ID of the current application area.
Note: When user wants to change the Application Area ( AA ) Id of a component , user shouldn’t change the component field ApplicationAreaId (which is handled as a virtual field ). User needs to locate an asset relation between the using component and a resource with the Id of the previous application area and change it to the Id of the new application area. Below is a sample script which needs to be edited as per the users need:
IMPORTANT: The following script is provided for example purposes only. It is not supported by Hewlett Packard.
'CO_ID = Component ID
'AA_ID = Application Area ID
Function changeAA(Byval CO_ID, Byval AA_ID)
Dim tdc ',CO_ID
'CO_ID = 1
Set tdc = TDConnection
Set assetRelationFactory = tdc.AssetRelationFactory
Set filter = assetRelationFactory.Filter
filter("ASR_OWNER_TYPE") = "COMPONENT"
filter("ASR_RELATED_TYPE") = "RESOURCES"
Set relationsList = filter.NewList()
For each relation in relationsList
relation.Field("ASR_RELATED_ID") = AA_ID
msgbox "New Application Area is " + CStr(AA_ID)
