How to Change the Requirements Status List

Tuesday, October 16, 2012
Hello all

Is it possible to change the Status values for the Requirements? If so, how can I do this. The Administration interface does not appear to have any capacity for changing these values.

Any help appreciated.

Hi Jonathan

I'm afraid you cannot change the values in the requirements status list (unlike those for incidents). There are business rules in the system that are tied to specific statuses.

Hi Adam

Thanks for the follow up. 
Unfortunately, the current set of status available are not very practical for reporting on the how long a requirement spends in development / testing phases. I would have to use the custom properties tab for this instead. 

"In Progress" - it would seem to me that once a requirement had been Accepted, it would spend most of its life in this status (In Progress) until it was implemented & deployed ... which it would then become "Completed".

I am intrigued ... what business rules are related to Requirement Status field?
