CCM administration – Attribute missing from the form.

  1. Add “Start Time” attribute in the form “Detail” section.

  2. I am not sure if the “Start Time” is a system attribute or not.

  3. Save the change.

  4. Open a new browser “Chrome” and login to the project area

  5. Open “Change Request” work item (see below screenshot).

  6. As you can see the attribute “Start Time” is not showing in the form

  7. I tested with 3 browsers (Chrome version 70.0, Firefox version 63.03, IE version 11.7…), I also tested with RTC Eclipse client. All of them did not show the “Start Time” in the form.

I can't see your images as they were not saved, but "Start Time" is a special attribute type used in plans.

You need to add the new attribute to the presentation section for it to appear in work items.
Editor Presentations

I think you should generally be adding a timestamp type if you want to use it for your own purposes.

I recommend reviewing this article:

I can find:
Name: Start Date Type: Timestamp ID: startDate

  1. As you said Ian, I believe this is an internal attribute. 
    1. The Eclipse Work Item Editor does not even allow to pick this attribute to be displayed in a section such as the details section.
      1. I tried the same with the Web UI but the attribute is basically hidden
    2. I was able to show it in queries but it always showed none - no value.
  2. The attribute mapping for planning shows the attribute as deprecated.

    Even if you could add the attribute, it is unclear what the attribute would show.
    Consider to create a custom attribute if you want to show some start date. 

    My Version was RTC 6.0.6
