Customizing Project Lists

Using the Project Lists page, you can create, rename, and delete user-defined lists. For details, see:

A list contains items, which are values that you can enter in a field. For example, the selection list for the Languages user-defined field may contain the items English and European Languages.

The list can also contain several levels of sub-items. For example, the item English can contain a sublist with the sub-items English (Australia), English (Canada), English (Great Britain), and English (US).


  • Performance Center: When creating project lists in Project Customization, sub-items are not supported. You can allow the user to select more than one value from a list by enabling the Allow Multiple Values option for the relevant field in the Project Entities page. For details, see the Field Settings table in Customizing Project Entities.
  • To associate a list with a field, see Customizing Project Entities.

Cross Project Customization

ALM Editions: Cross project customization is not available for Quality Center Enterprise Edition. For more information about ALM editions and their functionality, see the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide: ALM Editions.

If you are working with cross project customization, consider the following:

  • Working with a Template Project: If you are working with a template project, you use the Project Lists (Shared) link to create and customize user-defined lists. Project lists defined in a template project are applied to the linked projects when you apply the template customization.

  • Working with a Linked Project: If you are working with a project that is linked to a template project, you cannot modify, rename, or delete user-defined lists that are defined by the template project.
