Custom Fields

Define project-specific custom attributes for your requirements, test cases, and test sets. You can use the custom fields as object attributes that help you to further categorize or prioritize.



Supported object types

  • Requirements
  • Test Cases
  • Test Set

Custom fields conditions

  • Only Administrators can create and configure custom fields.
  • Custom fields are project-specific and apply only to the object type for which they have been defined.
  • Custom field defined for objects synchronized from 3rd party applications are not added to Test Manager. For example, if you have synchronized a Jira requirement for which you had defined a custom field, you will not see an entry in the Details tab of your object, in Test Manager.
  • Custom field names must be unique and are limited to 20 characters.
  • Custom fields are applied to existing and newly created objects.
  • Deleted custom fields are still applied to your existing objects. The value is set to free-form text and it does not retain any previously defined value. Deleting the value flags the custom field with an asterisk symbol.

Creating Custom Fields

  1. Log in to Test Manager and open your project.
  2. Navigate to Project Settings > Custom Field Definitions tab.
  3. Click Create and configure the following settings:
    • Name: Enter a name for your custom field.
    • Description (Optional): Add a description for reference.
    • Object Type: Select an object type from the dropdown.
    • Default Value: Enter a value that is going to be set as default for your object. For example: Medium, as part of a Low to High scale.
    • Value Hints: Type a value and press Enter to add it to the list. You can add any kind of value. For example: 1, 2, 3, if you assess priority.
  4. Click Save to confirm.

    You can view custom fields applied to your objects in the Details tab of each object.



Working with custom fields

To understand how custom fields can help you, consider a scenario in which you want to assess the risk type, and define a custom field to support your decision. Now, you can identify and label a specific object based on the risk type.

SAP Change Impact Mining labels

SAP Change Impact Mining labels are applied to test cases automatically when you run an SAP Change Impact Mining execution template. Labels such as transaction information can later be viewed in Labels section of a test case.

For more information on SAP Change Impact Mining, see SAP Testing Project.
