No able to add built-in attribute "Start Date" to editor presentation

Abinaya Raghupathy (11) | asked Feb 07, 12:42 a.m.
Hello Team,

We are using (customized) SAFe template for our projects.
We have a requirement to add "Start Date" and "End Date" attributes to Task type.
In Task type, we already see a built-in attribute "Start Date". But, we are not able to add this built-in attribute to the editor presentation for some reasons.

If we now create a new attribute by the same name "Start Date", then the same name is seen twice while we try to select "Start Date" attribute in Query/JRS reports. This might be misleading for the users.

So, kindly let us know how to handle this use case ?

 I can't seem to find a place where the attribute startDate is used in the editor presentations. I can not find any reference to startDate or Start Date in the process.xml. There is a reference in the plan attribute mapping. It shows deprecated in the web UI and is not removable as far as I can tell. It might be some kind of remnant from the past.

I do not know what it does and where it would be used. To avoid confusing your users with a custom attribute with the same name, you can rename the display name e.g. to zzz_Start Date. You can now create a custom one with the original name. For new attributes you can use the external URI attribute to declare a more abstract type declaration. Attributes with the same external URI can be considered as the same attribute in reports, even if the attribute ID and name are different.
