In defect lifecycle I want to be able to set the Cause field to become mandatory when the status is set to "Build Completed" and/or "Ready for Verification" to prevent defects being closed without a cause being populated.  How do I do this?

I am a new user to RTC having previously used Quality centre and ALM for test and defect management and am currently unfamiliar with the workflow process in RTC, so please give me the idiot guide version

 Hi James,

try the below articles. Look for Required attribute condition.


Best of lucks.

 There are basically two preconditions/advisors available for selection. One is called Required Attributes and one is called Required Attributes for Type and State. The naming might have changed over time, but it is pretty obvious if one looks at the precondition list.

Unless there is a good reason I would use the built in preconditions/advisors and not use a Condition and the precondition for Required attributes for condition, that you could also use.
