excel – "Cannot parse object reference from", Rally

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


I’m trying to run a query on Rally using an Excel plugin based on iteration. I have established that the plug-in works by running a query for blocked stories. However, I get the following error when attempting to query by iteration:

Query failed due to errors:
Cannot parse object reference from “iterationname”

Matt Greer answered a very similar question in March, but I can’t figure out how to translate this answer into making my query run. Please help. Thanks in advance

How to&Answers:

The query chooser in the Excel add-in is fairly primitive and really only works for fields that aren’t objects themselves (ScheduleState, PlanEstimate, etc.)

Since you are querying a sub-object you can just type in the query manually in the textfield and save it.

(Iteration.Name = “Foo”)
