Role based user list


Glenn N (11115) | asked Apr 13 '16, 3:15 p.m.
Is there a way to use the Role based User list in the Attribute customization for a specific status?E.g. display only all testers when status is changed from Resolved to In Test?That way we can prevent developers from assigning a defect when tester cannot start working on it based on the status.

The use case that you mentioned does not match your original question. Not displaying the testers (when in Resolved status) does not prevent a developer from assign the defect to "someone". You may consider locking the attribute (read-only) instead.

In terms of getting a user list based on roles, I don't think you can do it in Attribute Customization as the JavaScript functionality is quite limited there.

It should be doable with Java API.

I would recommend creating a separate task for a tester, or for a lighter weight approach, an approval for the tester, rather than trying to hand the ownership of a single task from one role to another.
