Modifying System and User-Defined Fields

You can modify the properties of system and user-defined fields in your ALM project.

Note: Certain fields cannot be modified. For example, you cannot modify the Type or Length properties for system fields. In addition, for system fields of type Lookup List, you cannot modify which list is associated with the field, or allow multiple values to be selected. For details, see Customizing Project Entities.

Cross Project Customization: If you are working with a project that is linked to a template project, you cannot modify system or user-defined fields that are defined by the template project. Fields defined by a template project are displayed with a template icon .

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.
