3.3.1. 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 the number of values associated with each list. By default the screen will initially be empty so the first thing you need to do is click “Add List” to create a new custom list:

After changing the name of the list, and specifying whether the values will be ordered by their name or the order in which they were entered (called by ID), you can either click “Save” to commit the change, or click the “Add Value” option to add some list values:

This is the set of values that the user will select from the drop-down list when the custom property is displayed. You can change the display to include:

  • All Active – displays only custom list values that are active
  • All But Deleted – displays all custom list values that are active or inactive but have not been deleted
  • All – displays all custom list values, including those that have been deleted

To add a new custom list value, click the “Add Value” button and a new row will be added to the list which you can now edit. To edit an existing custom list value, change the name in the textbox and click “Save”. To delete a custom list value, click on the “Delete” hyperlink. If you want to remove an item from the list temporarily, you can set its Active dropdown list to ‘No’, if you want to remove an item permanently, just click the ‘Delete’ button.

Note: Even if you delete a custom list value, there is an option to undelete by simply changing the display selection to “All” and clicking the ‘Undelete’ hyperlink next to a deleted value.

To edit an existing custom list, you just need to click on the “Edit Values” button to display the custom list name and list of associated values (which is the same screen as the one displayed for a new list). To remove a custom list from the project, just click on the “Remove” button next to the custom list and the list and all its associated values will be deleted from the project.
