Manage Resource Pools

Hi all,

 

is there a way to add multiple resources in a comfortable way to a newly created resource pool?

For example, i want to add 500 users to a resource pool. I only found the way using the auto complete list validation to select the users. But this is not an easy way for such an amount.

 

Any alternatives?

 

Thanks in advance

Sascha

Hi, Sascha,

 

you have 2 options:

1. use Resource Management Web Services (the setResourceParticipation method);

2. get a Logitech mouse :).

Re: Manage Resource Pools

Hi Sascha, Alex,

 

my two cents:

 

http://support.openview.hp.com/selfsolve/document/FID/DOCUMENTUM_QCCR1L37525:

The requirement is to provide a template to mass load the resources to the pools

 

For Web Services I found the following, but since I’m for sure no good on Web Services, I don’t know if there ARE other fields that are already available or if other fields can be set up:

The customer wants to achieve via external interface the same as is done via the "resource mass update" funcionality where the "role","Billing Approver", "Time Approver" and  "Time Sheet Policy" can be changed in a bulk way.

In webservices there is no operation to modify current resources.
As per the  "open interface guide" also no documented way to do this.

What customer wants is a confirmation that this is not possible and an enhancement request to add an operation for resource modification to the web Services.

 

Best regards,

Dirk

Hi, Sascha,

There is an add-in for excel that will help you achieve this. Send me a private message with your email address and I shall provide it to you.
