The Targetprocess Developer Hub

Welcome to the Targetprocess developer hub. Here you'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Targetprocess as quickly as possible and support you if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!


Custom Calculations

Targetprocess REST API v.2 is quite powerful with its ability to do advanced calculations. In a single API v.2 request you can perform common math operations over entities in root result collection and in nested ones. As a result you get calculated numeric, date, boolean, text values.


Besides Calculations performed within REST API there are a few other features in Targetprocess that support custom calculations. More information: Custom Calculations and Formula Expressions

Selectors: Custom Calculations over nested collections

You can request inner collections with filters, projections, and aggregations. E.g. I want to get projects with:

  • all non-closed bugs
  • sum of feature efforts
  • count of opened requests

  • openBugs:Bugs.Where(EntityState.IsFinal!=true) - all non-closed bugs. We need to specify name of the result collection. As far as Bugs is a collection of bug we can use some standard Enumerable methods (see below)
  • featureEffort:features.sum(effort) - we can aggregate collections by some field of collection item.
  • openRequestCount:requests.Count(EntityState.IsInitial==true) - we can calculate counts with some filters.

Final selectors: Custom Calculations over result output

It's possible to use aggregation on root collection.

Example: I want to get count of all user stories: userstories?result=Count

Result is:


Example: I want to get sum, average, min and max efforts from all user stories:


Result is:

  "sum": 1168.0000,
  "average": 14.419753,
  "min": 6.0000,
  "max": 29.0000

Example: I want to get effort sum from all user stories, that have tasks and ids > 50:


Result is:

  "sum": 259.0000

.NET Expressions

API v2 uses LINQ expression parser that use syntax that is very close to standard .NET syntax. More information: .NET Expressions
