As the summary indicates, I'm trying to create an interaction between custom attributes of type Category and Contributor that will behave like Filed Against and Owned By. Is this interaction possible with custom attributes?

Consider to explain why and what the business requirement would be.

This is indeed an interesting question I have asked myself as well.Not sure what Anthony's business needs are, but we currently explore options how we can change the owner of a work item based on the category that is selected. To speak more in detail, the new owner should be the first user that has the role xy of the team area that is assigned to the selected category.

A follow up action would be the best way, Lukas, the user could not even override it. A calculated value could be used with all the problems that has. I show some of the Java code in a condition on my blog.

The original business need was to provide a similar interaction to the Filed Against and Owned By fields in addition to having an existing Filed Against and Owned By. This issue is OBE, however, and no longer needs a response.
