Error - Filed Against not set. However, we have removed this from the Details template in Change Management area

MIchelle Sheggeby (1155) | asked Aug 01 '13, 10:52 a.m.

We currently have a number of products setup in Rational Change and Configuration Management area.   We have modified the Details area to reflect only what we want to see.   All of our other products works correctly and we can log defects.  One product gives us the following error when attempting to save a defect:  "Attribute "Filed Against" not set.  The "Filed Against" attribute needs to be set (work item <9:40:44>).

I have gone in and added and then tested and it works.  I remove it from the template again and the error is given.  It's setup with the same setup of all of our others.

Our Details area has:

Project Area, Team Area, Type, Severity, Found In, Requestor (customer attribute), Due Date, Priority, Estimate, Time Spent, Owned By, Fixed In (custom attribute) and Release (customer attribute). 

Filed Against is not hidden, nor displayed, because I went in and removed it by the X and then saved the project.

Any ideas?

Hi Michelle,

Unless you want all of your work items to be assigned to the same team area, you will need to expose the "Filed Against" field, since that is the field that determines what Team Area the work item is assigned to.
