Extract to <Polarion installation>/polarion/plugins and restart Polarion.



Configuration is handled like most other Polarion configuration files: It is possible to specify type specific, project specific and global configurations. This plug-ins requires a file called at .polarion/tracker on repository or project level. It is also possible to define a type-specific configuration by prefixing the name of the configuration with the id of the Work Item type.


Following values have to be configured:

  • source.project: Id of the project containing the Workitem to be used as template.
  • Id of the Workitem to be used as template.
  • copy.fields: Comma-separated list of fields to be copied from template Work Item.

The example configuration copies the content of the field description from the template WorkItem WI-45 in project p1 to the new Work Item to be created.
