how to lock an item

Postby daniellez » Thu Aug 17, 2017 2:03 pm


I'm trying to create a template for an item (such as Feature) - with specific fields I added and with table in the "Description". I would like to know if there's a way to do that.
In the meantime I create the template out of a specific item - how can I lock this item to ensure no one will change it?

Another Q: is there a way to turn a field to "read-only"?

Thank you,

Hello Daniel. If you look in Polarion administration under work item types you see, about the 4th or 5th column, a place for 'Template'. Create a work item (Feature) with the information you want to use, such as a table in the description, and put the work item ID in this column. Save it. From that point on, Polarion will use that work item as a template for all new work items.

Also, in administration, you will find an item called Read Only Fields under Work items. This area will allow you to create read only fields for your project.
