Resolution:

The main issue page in Issue Manager is the one shown below:



It is not possible to add additional fields to the main issue page. It is however possible to edit the names of the fields which are already present. This can be done under ISSUE MANAGER | CONFIGURATION |STANDARD ISSUE.

There is an RFE logged to have the ability to add custom fields to the main issue page. If you would like to have your details added to this RFE please contact support@borland.com and quote this resolution ID.

The custom tab appears at the right-hand side of the tabs which appear across the middle of the screen:


Further details on creating custom fields can be found in the Issue Manager Administration Guide. This can be located under START | PROGRAMS | BORLAND | SILKCENTRAL | ISSUE MANAGER | DOCUMENTATION | ISSUE MANAGER ADMINISTRATION GUIDE. The section of interest is ‘Customizing the Issue Details Page | Creating Custom Tabs & Fields’.
