Hi Malaya,

You had tagged this question with rational-requirements-composer so I have re-tagged it with rational-team-concert so the folks with more expertise on that product will see and hopefully respond to your question.

 Hi Malaya, 

I think you can try use the feature of attribute customization feature.
There is a jazz.net article on this topic. https://jazz.net/library/article/537

For your scenario, I think if you want to limit with number of 0 to 8, then probably "Value Sets" type provider can be helpful.
Or you can add a "Validator" provider with number range can also helps here.

but this value set will work only for custom fields but not for built in filelds like estimate or time remaining. Let me know your thoughts.

You can use script based validation on the "Estimate" attribute. You will need to write a script that validates the time you enter.
Or make a new attribute in which you can use integer based validation from 0-8

The limitation is not on built-in or custom attribute, but the attribute type. 


Both estimate and time remaining (time spent) is on type "Duration", you need to use script based value set or script based validation, as Zee mentioned above.

The number range validation mentioned in my answer can not apply to "Duration" type attribute.
