Work with users list

When working with user list fields, you can choose a user name from a user list, sort the users list, search for users, group users by user groups, and select users from the list or from a group tree.

To access

In an ALM grid or tree, select a column with a user name value, and click the drop-down arrow. The Users List dialog box opens.

Important information
  • To sort the Users List in ascending or descending order by user name or full name, click the Name or Full Name column heading. Click the column heading again to reverse the sort order.

  • When defining a condition for a user, you can specify the current user (select [CurrentUser]), or an entire user group (for example, [Developer]).

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element



Searches users by user name or full name. Type the name of a user (or part of the name) in the Find box and click the Find button. ALM highlights the first record that contains the search string. Press F3 to find subsequent occurrences of the search string.

Tip: You can also search incrementally by typing the first character of the user name under the Name column. You can type additional characters to narrow down the search. ALM begins searching as soon as you type the first character of the search string, and highlights the record with the first occurrence of all the characters in the search string.
