I created a custom work item "SCR" for which I created enumeration "TeamResponsible" and a Timestamp "DiscussionDate".

Now I am creating second customized workitem "SIR", it needs to have the same attributes  enumeration "Team Responsible" and Timestamp "Discussed on".

Can the same customized attributes be shared in different customized workitems? Or will I have to keep repearting/creating them new for each workitem?

I was not able to see it getting shared in 2 different work items. And repeating the creation will create huge list and confusions.

Please let me know.

 You can reuse custom attributes on different work item types. You only need to choose the option "Reuse Existing Attribute" after clicking in the Add... link (if you are using the web interface).

In this case the work item types will share exactly the same attribute.

This is also documented in the CLM 5.0.2 Knowledge Center; see Defining work item types and attributes, step 8.b.
