I have a couple custom fields that are multi value, with a very large number of drop down values. I need to compare those drop down values to find any discrepancies.
Is there a way I can do this?
I think the easiest way would be to retrieve the list of the values of the custom fields by using WSAPI. For example, I have 2 Custom Fields in my User Story type (HierarchicalRequirement in WSAPI) and I can retrieve the list of the allowed values for both of the fields by using the following URL :
Names of custom fields you can retrieve by going to https://rally1.rallydev.com/slm/doc/webservice/ and checking under the HierarchicalRequirement object.
Having the outputs from the 2 aforementioned URLs you can copy them (with some little editing) to the text files and compare them by using for example Notepad++ Compare plugin or any text comparison tooling which is available for you. I hope that helps.
Thank you very much! This helped.
Glad that worked for you ! You're most welcome and have a great day !
