3.3.1. Edit Types

The following screen is displayed when you choose the “Edit Types” link from the Incidents section of the administration sidebar:

The screen displays a list of all the defined incident types for the current project. By default the screen will be populated with the standard SpiraTeam® incident types. To edit an existing incident type, simply change the name, associated workflow, issue check-box, risk check-box, set a default type and/or change the active flag then click <Update>.

You can’t delete an existing incident type, but to prevent it appearing in any drop-down-lists, all you need to do is change its active flag to “No” and click <Update>. To add a new incident type, click the <Add> button and a new row will be added to the list which you can now edit.

The associated workflow drop-down list allows you to specify which workflow the incident type will follow. This is a very powerful feature since it allows you to configure different workflows for different incident types; i.e. a bug may follow a workflow geared to identification and resolution, whereas a risk may only need a much simpler set of steps and actions.

The issue and risk check-boxes allow you to specify if the incident type is an issue or risk-type, which means it is would be eligible for display in the issue or risk section of the project home page respectively. The default radio button allows you to specify which incident type should be the default for newly created incidents. This is the type that a new incident will be set to unless changed by the creator of the incident. Note that you must have at least one active incident type, and you cannot set an inactive type as the default.
