Idea ID 2835271

Make Detected by field available for all Backlog Items types

As soon as Author is always the account who physically created Backlog Item like User Story or Quality Story and cannot be modified, we really need the field which idicates the real Detector of entity. Author and Detected by may differ because entities may be imported or injected by sinlge user or API Key accounts, but designed by other persons.

So that it is the same as with Defects.

We cannot create "Detected by" udf due to limitations so would like to have it system for all Backlog Items types.

Hi @Vitaliy  

Can you please explain what are the limitations keeping you from adding the UDF?

Hi @yael 
The limitation is the requirement of the fields Label uniqueness per the Shared Space and associated Workspaces:     https://admhelp.microfocus.com/octane/en/15.1.20/Online/Content/AdminGuide/how_fields.htm#mt-item-0

Actually, when trying to create "Detected by" udf for User Stories, either on Shared Space or Workspace level, I'm getting the error: udf_error.jpg

Creating udf with other Label but the same semantics is not desirable. Нaving two different field Labels with the same meaning in Backlog will be confusing for users

@Vitaliy  I know it's not a perfect solution, but how about the following workaround:

1. Change the label of the system field for defects to something like "Detected by (OBSOLETE)

2. Add a new UDF for all work items with the same name and label "Detected by"

@yael It would work if we configure the Space from scratch. But as for now we have ~80 active Workspaces in the Shared Space. I guess it will be rather difficult to copy field values from obsolete field to new one for Defects and replace all the field references in Favorites, Reports, Dashboard etc...

Not so critical issue, but would be nice to have such field available for all Backlog in the one of the nearest upcoming releases
