Move items allows you to move an item or set of items, along with all associated conversations, versions, attachments, etc. to a different project. This is useful when a project has grown too large and performance has started to degrade.
Consider the following before moving an item or set of items between projects.
|•||Move items touches a large portion of the Jama application. Performance may be impacted at the time of the move if other resource-intensive processes are being done at the same time.|
|•||Document key IDs will be changed when moved. The new ID will be based on rules set up in the destination project.|
|•||A move cannot be undone. Users can move items back to the original project but IDs will be changed.|
|•||When an item is moved, all associated stream collaboration, activities, versions, etc. are moved into the new project. Attachments, tags, and releases will be copied into the new project.|
|•||Original attachments, tags, and releases will still exist in the source project.|
|•||Test runs cannot be moved. Test cases can be moved without impact to test runs.|
|•||Items contained in a review will not be shown in future versions of a review after they have been moved.|
|•||The user performing the move operation must have Write permissions in the source and destination project.|
|•||The items to be moved must be unlocked.|
|•||If any moved items are associated with an integration sync, integrations such as the JIH cannot be running while a move is being performed.|
|•||There is not another move operation running at the same time.|
|•||Moving items between projects is limited to components and sets only. If you are trying to move a folder of items or individual items from a component or set, you must first create a new component/set and move those items to the new component/set.|
|1.||In the source project, right-click on the set or component of items you want to move.|
|2.||Select Move item.|
|3.||In the Move items to... pop-up, select the destination project.|
|4.||Confirm the move by selecting Confirm.|
|5.||During the move, you can choose to go to the project the items were moved to by selecting Go to project or stay in the current project by selecting Done.|
|6.||A window will pop up to show the current status of the move|
7. Once the move is complete, you can find moved items in the activity stream to view or move the files again.
|•||If any item fails to move, the entire move will fail.|
|•||The document ID in old baselines will reflect the new ID.|
|•||Move is limited to the component or set level.|
