Attributes tab/page

On the Attributes tab/page, set or modify the user-defined attributes for items, requests, baselines, or projects/streams.

The displayed attributes depend on the following factors:

  • The type of request, item, or baseline.

  • The role section you select (the set of attributes that are relevant to a user with that role).

  • The object.

If you have selected more than one request, item, or baseline, the attributes don't show current values. Values you specify are applied to all selected objects.

Note: The Attributes tab is not displayed if you select multiple requests, items, or baselines of different types.
