Set default value for Enumeration

Sangeetha Jadav (1578) | asked May 09 '14, 11:34 a.m.
I have a enumeration 'Data Location' which has values 
  Loc 1
  Loc 2 
  Loc 3 
  Loc 4 

I want to make 'Loc 3' as default value for that attribute. Can you please let me know how would I do it.

Under Enumerations tab, I have made selected Loc 3 as Default literal but still Its not being set as default.

if you run synchronization on your work items it should update any that pre-exist.Remember you can set a default in two ways. You can use the default literal and unassigned literal values in the enumeration. or you can use the attribute Customization option. I didn't see what version you are the default values.
add -- in the provider drop down you can select enumeration list and then select the enumeration field and it will display your options. Just remember if you set a field with a default value you want to ensure that you have not flagged it as mandatory(required). If you have then set an enumeration value as default to something like (please select) not a real value. Hope this helps
