3.7.2. Edit Custom Properties

This link is used to actually setup the custom properties associated with each artifact type in the project. The following screen is displayed when you choose the “Edit Custom Properties” link from the Administration sidebar navigation:

The screen displays a list of all the possible custom properties for a particular artifact type for the current project. Each artifact type (requirement, test case, etc.) can have up to ten (10) custom text properties and up to ten (10) list properties. The text properties are ones where the user can enter any textual data they like, so typically it is useful for notes, comments and other freeform fields where the range of inputs is not known ahead of time. The list properties are ones where you want the user to pick the value from a predefined list of options defined by you ahead of time.

Initially the screen will default to showing the existing custom properties for a project’s Requirements; to change the list to a different artifact type (e.g. Incidents), all you need to do is change the artifact type in the drop-down-list. This will refresh the list to show the custom properties for that artifact type.

To add a custom property to an artifact, all you have to do is enter an alias name for the custom property from one of the twenty (20) available entries in the list and click the <Update> button. For list properties you also need to choose the name of a matching custom list that has been defined for this project.

Any entry that has a defined alias will be displayed on that artifact’s details page. To remove an existing custom property for an artifact, again all you need to do is click on the alias text box for that entry and delete the name of the property, then click <Update>. The system will automatically insert entries for newly added aliases and delete entries for those whose aliases are removed.
