In RTC you can define the various State Groups. These are visible in the Taskboard. How can I define the ORDER of the newly created states.

I see now (from left to right):
State Group 3
State Group 2
State Group 4
State Group 1

I want to order that into:
State Group 1
State Group 2
State Group 3
State Group 4

open the Process specification source and change the order in the stategroup table for that workitem

            <configuration-data xmlns="" final="false" id="">
                <stateGroupDefinition category="closed" id="closed" name="Closed" oslcGroup="oslc-closed"/>
                <stateGroupDefinition category="open" id="open" name="Open"/>
                <stateGroupDefinition category="inprogress" id="inprogress" name="In Progress" oslcGroup="oslc-inprogress"/>
                <stateGroupDefinition category="closed" id="verified" name="Verified" oslcGroup="oslc-verified"/>
                <stateGroupDefinition category="open" id="sg5" name="my group"/>

I would like also to do that, but I do not know where I can find this 'Process specification source' ?

Appreciate your help,

using Eclipse, Open Project, select the Process Configuration Source tab

Thanks Sam but actually I'm an RTC end user, I'm just using RTC by accessing the URL my project. Do you mean that if I download Eclipse I can export setting from RTC and re-import then?

I will appreciate any guidelines for setting up Eclipse,
Thank you
