Create a global state model

  1. Click the Administration tab, click Project Tracker > Artifact attributes in the left navigation pane, and click the link for a state attribute.
  2. On the Edit Global Attribute Page, click the State transitions tab.
  3. To create a new model, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Add New.
    To modify an existing model, select the model from the Select a state model drop-down list.
    If this is the first time you are creating a state model, a default model is created.
  4. In the Attribute state transitions table, review the first row and click the options that you want to make available to users when an artifact is newly created.
    To assign a default initial state to a state attribute, choose exactly one state in the Initial Creation row of the attribute state transitions table. You can assign more than one transition state to a preceding state. For example, for a Defect artifact type, you may always want the initial state to be New. From the New state, if you want the user to be able to choose from the Open and Closed-Will Not Fix states, you would check these checkboxes in the row and de-select the other checkboxes.
  5. Review the subsequent rows in the table and select the options to be available for the other states in the state model.
  6. Click Save changes.
