Attribute only editable on submit

Ilona Krammer (159340) | asked Dec 13 '16, 4:46 a.m.
Can I somehow configure an attribute (without java or javascript) to just be editable when the work item is being submitted - so just at the very first save? And as soon as it has the first state it cannot be changed anymore?
(It is a mandatory field so the editor has to choose a value before he/she saves for the first time)

I don't really want to create a separate state so that the user has to change states after saving..

Thanks in advance!

So I used a precondition "read-only attributes for condition" and checked in the condition if the dropdown is still set to "Please select" or to a valid value. That kind of works out.

Good approach, but you explicitly excluded attribute customization in your question.

True - I hoped it would work better in another way and I'd overlooked something maybe in the configuration but it seems like a condition is the best option for this

You can use the advisor "Read-Only Attributes For Type and State" and configure the attribute read only for all states but new. That is the closest I think you can get. In a custom condition or advisor you might be able to check that this is really the very first save, but I am not certain.

RTC Work Items where targeted to be simple to use and have limitations if it comes to fancy designs.
