Underlying Work Item Search

 Allows users to enter an ID of an "high level“ Work Item, e.g. a requirement, and display all Work Items that are linked on lower levels to this Work Item. This gives an overview about the implementation progress of requirements.


This plugin crawls through the hierarchy of a given Work Item ID and displays all Work Item types that are specified in \com.sonydadc.underlyingwisearch.servlet_1.0.0\webapp\WEB-INF\, and matches the search filter.

Next to Work Item IDs also Timepoints can be searched. With this mode all Items with the given Timepoint are searched and crawled through their hierarchy.

The search result contains a summary of all estimates and time spent. Also an accomplishment rate is provided which measures the implementation status of the searched Item.


  • Copy the folder com.sonydadc.underlyingwisearch.servlet_1.0.0 to ..\Polarion\polarion\plugins.
  • Create a new Wiki page on Project Level and copy the content of wiki.txt to this site.
