We can create custom attributes on source file versions, streams, snapshots, components, and baselines(RTC 6.0.2).

I am configuring our team process and thinking of using this feature to indicate whether a file version  is TESTED or not.

Does anyone know the recommended best practice for this feature?
Is there GUI to get / change the value of a custom attribute for file version?

I have only the following article.

there is no UI available this is only accessible using the Java API or from the SCM command line. It is supposed to be used for automation. There is also no permission or anything to protect it - as there is no UI.

Note: In RTC 6.0.6 the ability to modify (add/edit/remove) custom attributes in the Stream editor has been added. This is available in both the RTC Ecipse and Visual Studio rich clients.
