How do I configure what fields are visible in the "New Defect" Window ?

Jump to solution

For the same ALM project, some users see certain fields and while others see all of the fields. I would like to know where to configure this in ALM. Why does the adminstrators see fewer fields than everyone else?

I have ALM 11.52 SP2

Thanks.

Defect field visibility can be controlled through the "Script Generator - Defect Field Customization" and the "Script Generator - Add Defect Field Customization". Both are covered in the ALM Admin guide.

Hello,

 

This behavior depends for the customization of the fields and also the permissions given to the users group. You can check this characteristics in ALM: Go to ALM > Customization > Groups and Permissions

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

You can write workflow script based on User.IsInGroup("<Group Name>") = True  and then have the field visible true or false. You can do as you wish with the fields.

Thanks for all of your responses. Very helpful.  I got what I needed via "Script Generator - Defect Field Customization" and the "Script Generator - Add Defect Field Customization". Both are covered in the ALM Admin guide.
