Configuring the Project Control Entities

The project control entities do not need to be set up or altered in any way before you start using Project Management. However, if you want to change them, they can be customized to suit your business needs in the following ways:

  • Viewing and editing security on certain fields can be altered.

  • Individual field names and values can be changed.

  • Fields themselves can be configured to be hidden, visible, or read-only depending on what stage has been reached in each project control process, which are driven by the workflows discussed in Configuring Project Control Processes.

  • New fields can be added.

If you choose to configure your own project control request types, you must include one of the following field groups in the request header type:

  • Project Issue

  • Project Risk

  • Project Scope Change

For more details on field groups and request header types, see the Demand Management Configuration Guide.
