New Artifact Type in DOORS NG

Philip Hartman (111) | asked Feb 08 '16, 4:24 p.m.
There are only two artifact types in the default template of the DOORS NG free trial.

How can I add new artifact types so other options show in the drop-down list when creating/editing artifacts?  Also so that importing artifacts can create using the new types?

To answer your question directly, from the administrator drop down menu (which looks like a gear weal at the to right corner), select Manage project properties.  This KC topic explains more: Managing project properties in a requirements project

Glad to hear you are using the sandbox.  I hope you know about these tutorials:
I also have two videos I commander you watch
- Administrating project in RDNG
- Capturing requirements in RDNG

Hope this helps!

If you're talking about the sandbox projects on, unfortunately that's all you can get. The feature that Jianoula mentioned requires JazzAdmins/JazzProjectAdmins, which we don't have on

Actually, you just need to be an administrator to your requirements project, which you are.  You can modify the properties of your project... Check it out ;)

Are you really sure you can open the "Manage Project Properties" page within a sandbox project? I surely cannot. I have no problems with in my own environments.
