How can we customize zephyr field values


Field values are hard coded


Zephyr offers limited customization of some field values. Current values can be changed but you cannot remove or add additional items. The fields that can be customized are:

  1. The Testcase Execution Status (since 2.0)
  2. The Testcase Priority (since 2.0)
  3. The user's type in Resource Management application (since 2.0)
  4. The Test Step Execution Status (since 2.5)
  5. The Requirement Priority (since 2.5)

To customize any or all of these you need to Create a property file [Name:, case sensitive] can be dropped in %ZEPHYR_HOME%\apache-tomcat-5.5.28\webapps\flex\WEB-INF\classes

[Sample Below]
resourceManagement.userType.LOV=1=Employee (FT);2=Employee(PT);3=Contractor;4=Temp;5=Intern
testresult.testresultStatus.LOV=10=Change Status;1=Pass;2=Fail;3=WIP;4=Blocked
testStepResult.testStepResultStatus.LOV=10=Change Status;1=Pass;2=Fail;3=WIP;4=Blocked

Once you drop the file, restart Zephyr Server and login as Manager.
