3.3.2. Edit Custom Properties

This option is used to actually define 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 thirty (30) custom properties of various types.

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 edit an existing custom property definition or add a new definition, click the “Edit Definition” button for a specific property, and the following dialog will be displayed:

The fields visible will vary depending on the type of custom property you have selected, but every custom property will need to have a Name and a Type. The Name is the caption that will be shown to the user when viewing or editing the artifact. The type is the type of data the field allows. If the custom property is either a List or Multi-List type, you will need to choose the associated Custom List that you previously defined.

Under the Options tab will be available options that can be set for the custom property:

When finished, click the ‘Save’ button and you will be returned to the Custom Property list.

Important: When changing a custom property’s type or removing a custom property, the data is not actually removed from the artifact. Therefore, if you change a custom property from a date type to a text custom property, the field will display the old date value until it is changed by the user.
