Adding User-Defined Fields

You can customize an ALM project by adding up to 99 user-defined fields to each ALM entity.

Cross Project Customization: The template project and linked projects can each contain up to 99 user-defined fields for each ALM entity.

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.

To add a user-defined field:

  1. In the Project Customization window, in the left pane, click Project Entities. The Project Entities page opens.

  2. Under Project Entities, expand an entity.

  3. Click the User Fields folder.

  4. To add a user-defined field, you can:

    • Click the New Field button to add a number, string, date, or list type field.

      Note: In Site Administration's Site Configuration tab, you can extend the number of memo fields you can add, by editing the EXTENDED_MEMO_FIELDS parameter. For details, see Setting ALM Configuration Parameters.

  5. In the Settings tab, set properties for the field. For details, see Customizing Project Entities.
