3.4.2. Edit Statuses

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

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

You can’t delete an existing incident status, 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 status, click the <Add> button and a new row will be added to the list which you can now edit.

The open check-box allow you to specify if the incident status should be considered open or not, which means it is would be eligible for display in the various sections of the user’s home page and the project home page that list open incidents. The default radio button allows you to specify which incident status should be the default for newly created incidents. This is the status that a new incident will be set to when first created, and acts as the first step in the incident workflow. Note that you must have at least one active incident status, and you cannot set an inactive status as the default.
