Disconnect between Custom List items and Test Case view

Wednesday, January 28, 2015

We have an issue with our Custom List not reflecting the Test case columns.  Below you can see the Custom List items as compared to the Test Case view along with the choices in the "Show/hide columns" option.  I've added a new Custom item to the list which needs to appear in our Test Cases.

QUESTION:  Why are these Custom List items not match up with what is in the Test Case views, and how can it be fixed?

Hi Tammy,

The "Edit Custom Lists" page shows all the configured lists for all the artifacts. They are available to be used in custom properties for one or more artifacts, such as incidents and test cases.

To get something to appear in the Test Case Show/hide columns dropdown, you'll need to define a custom property that uses the list. See Administration -> Custom Properties -> Edit Custom Properties, and then choose "Test Case" from the "Artifact Type" dropdown. Then you'll see how to do it.
