Is there a list of all the expressions you can use to colorize work items

Caroline Smith (4611923) | asked Apr 10 '13, 6:30 a.m.
I would like to colorize work items based on the status of the work item.  I am using a custom workflow and when I used the expression status:blocked nothing happens.

Also on a similar customization note.  Is it possible to display custom attributes in the view layout.  We have a ticket number that is very important but it is not in the list of items that I can add to the layout.

I am using eclipse client 3.0.1

Thanks in advance

Typing Ctrl + <Space> brings up the available attributes list while adding the colorize from web client as well as Eclipse client.

For the new custom attributes to appear in the column's list you need to add it in the Attribute Mapping under Planning in process configuration of the project area.

that ctrl+space shortcut is exactly what I was looking for.

I will go and take a look at the attribute mapping now.  Thanks!

Hi Caroline,

I found this help topic on colorizing work items:  Try using state instead of status.

When you say adding a custom attribute to the view layout, do you mean display a custom attribute in a work item?  If so, the basic steps are to create the attribute for the work item type and then open the work item editor that is bound to that work item type and add a presentation for the custom attribute.

doh, using the correct word would have been a great idea!!!

I have the custom attributes displaying in the presentation when I open the work item but I want to use some of them on the actual ranked list view.
