How do I get the "Custom" work item tag to display on the web interface.


Bob Ferguson (891139) | asked Jan 09 '15, 2:58 p.m.
I have RTC 3.0.1 and have added custom fields to my work item.  When I view work items with the RTC eclipse client I see a "Custom" tab in the Work Item with contains my custom fields.  However, when I use the Web interface there is no Custom tab or selection to show me the fields.  How do I get custom fields to be available using the web interface?

The Custom tab will never displayed on the WebUI.  Any attributes you want to display in both UI must be in some other tab / section of the work item's editor presentation.
