Create a state attribute

The following section describes how to create state attributes.

When you create a new state, or edit a state model, the change appears immediately in all artifact types and projects that use the state attribute.

To create a new state attribute

  1. Log in to Collabnet as a domain administrator and click the Administration tab.
  2. Click Project Tracker > Artifact attributes in the left navigation pane.
  3. On the Global Attributes page, click the Create new button at the bottom of the page.
  4. On the Create New Global Attribute Page, select State from the Type drop-down list, provide a name and a description, and click Continue.
  5. On the Edit Global Attribute Page, scroll to the bottom and add the first state in the State name field.
  6. Click Save and continue.
  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 as needed.
    Note: To control the order in which state values appear in a drop-down list on user project pages, select a numeric order using the drop-down numeric lists in the List sequence column to the right of each state.
