Hook: Rich Text Comment Creator

 This is a hook for the Work Item Action Interceptor Framework extension that lets you create rich text Work Item comments. (With images and formatting).


This hook requires the Work Item Action Interceptor Framework (WIAIF) extension to run.

How to Install

  • Copy the richcomments.jar file to WIAIF's  "hooks" folder. 
  • Reload the plugin from the WIAIF Interceptor Management page or restart Polarion.
  • Add the hook to the WIAIF Properties file  ( to define which Polarion Projects should be affected (as comma-separated values):
    • RichCommentsHook.projects=PROJECT_ID1,PROJECT_ID2
    • i.e.: RichCommentsHook.projects=elibrary,drivepilot

How to Use

  • Add a Rich Text type custom field with rich_comment as the ID to the Work Item types that you want to use it for.

  • Configure the Work Item Forms of the target Work Item types to display the following field just above the Comments field: <field id="rich_comment"/>
  • Create a rich text comment in the Rich Comment field.
  • When you Save, the system will automatically trigger the hook and save the text from this field as a new Work Item comment. (With the images and formatting preserved.)
