3.7.1. Edit Custom Lists

If you are planning on having any list based custom properties in your project, then you first need to create and populate the custom project lists that the user will be able to select from. These lists are stored separately from the individual artifact types so that you can have one set of values (e.g. list of operating systems under test) be reused by multiple artifact types.

The following screen is displayed when you choose the “Edit Custom Lists” link from the Administration sidebar navigation:

The screen displays all the custom lists currently defined within the project, together with an active flag. By default the screen will initially be empty so the first thing you need to do is click <Add> to create a new custom list. After changing the name, just click <Update> to commit the change.

Once you have all the project lists defined, you should then click on the “Edit Values” link to display the list of values associated with the list. This is the set of values that the user will select from the drop-down list when the custom property is displayed:

To add a new custom list value, click the <Add> button and a new row will be added to the list which you can now edit. To edit an existing custom list value, simply change the name in the textbox and click <Update>. You can’t actually delete an existing custom list value, 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>.
