Modify a global attribute

Modify a global attribute

  1. Log in as a domain administrator and click the Administration tab.
  2. Click Project Tracker > Artifact Attributes in the left navigation pane.
  3. Click the Global Attributes sub-tab.
  4. Click the link of the attribute that you want to modify.
  5. If appropriate, change the attribute type from the Input Type field.
  6. If appropriate, change the name in the Name field.
  7. If appropriate, change the description in the Description field.
    Users can view descriptions to learn how to enter information for the attribute. Make your descriptions informative.
  8. If the attribute is a list-type attribute, in the Attribute Options section enter a name for any new value that you want to add, or modify the name for an existing value and click Save.
    To enter additional values, add the value in the New field and enter a unique order for displaying the value to users. Duplicate values for preferred order will generate an error.
  9. To delete a value, check the Delete checkbox to the left of the value.
  10. If the attribute is a list-type attribute, you can choose parent values for each attribute option.
    For example, an attribute option named Operating system can be the parent value for options such as Windows, Linux, UNIX, and Mac.

Note: You can reassign the Namespace of a global attribute to another value only if the attribute is not associated to an artifact type.
