How to ensure a defect can be submitted only in NEW status
One would think the ALM system by default would not allow a defect to submitted in FIXED status or any other status for that matter apart from NEW. How can we ensure through the workflow that this is not allowed.
You can mark status field as read only whenever a new defect is created because by default the initial status will always be "New".
You can achieve this by including below line of code in Bug_New function of workflow.
Bug_Fields("BG_STATUS").IsReadOnly = true
