Issue as parameter

I'm trying to create a view with connected issue as parameter. With the xml code below I'm getting the dropdown parameter selection with issues, but when selecting one the log says the following:

 

Parameter value is not an item in parameter: issueP
Cannot find variable with name: issueP

 Grid XML definition:

<Grid>
  <Parameters>
    <Parameter caption="Select issue" name="issueP">
        <Values>
            <ForEachIssueInObj type="IR">
              <Filter>
                <IssueTypeEquals name="Issue Type"/>
              </Filter>
              <AddValue/>
            </ForEachIssueInObj>
        </Values>
    </Parameter>
  </Parameters>
  <Columns>
    <NameColumn width="150" caption="Issue name" objectName="issue"/>
    <IssueStatusColumn width="150" caption="Issue Status" objectName="issue"/>      
    <IssueIdColumn width="150" caption="Issue ID" objectName="issue"/>
    <DescriptionColumn width="150" caption="Issue description" objectName="issue"/>                
  </Columns>
  
  <ForEach select="$issueP"> <!-- There is no select for single element -->
    <Row>
      <RowObject name="issue"/>
      <!-- <ForEachObjInIssue type=""/> -->
    </Row>
  </ForEach>
</Grid>

 

This seems to be intentional, the help page for Parameters says "Note that parameter values have to be items."

Thus I post this in feature request. 

If issues could be added to the "Context" concept also it would be great.

Hello David, 


As you have found, parameters work only for items. Have you considered creating a view under Projects? This may be a good fit for your use case.

How to create views is not yet covered on our Support Portal under Change Management, however, I think that you will find all that you need in the Help under Projects setup
