Cutom field (checkbox) to be grayed out (edition disabled) Edited

Dominik M. Apr 27, 2017


What I plan to do is to get Cutom field entitled "Other Requirements" (checkbox custom field type) to be grayed out (unavailable to be edit) after clicking on edit button after the issue was created. So in fact this is to happen on the edit and view issue screens.

Project administrators should be able to edit this field only during a transition (named "Verification")

Custom field "Other Requirments" is of to be visible during the whole workflow cycle.

Any help highly appreciated.

You could accomplish this like this -

Create three screens

  • PROJ Bug Create Screen
    • Place Other Requirements field on the screen
  • PROJ Bug Edit Screen
    • Do NOT place Other Requirements field on the screen
  • PROJ Bug View Screen
    • Place Other Requirements field on the screen
  • Transition: Other Requirements
    • Place Other Requirements field on the screen

Create a screen scheme

  • PROJ Bug Screen Scheme
    • Create Operation: Issue Type Create Screen
    • Edit Operation: Issue Type Edit Screen
    • View Operation: Issue Type View Screen
  • Assign this screen scheme to your Issue Type Screen Scheme
    (Which you'd assign in turn to your project)

On your workflow

  • Create your Verification action
  • Assign the Transition: Other Requirements screen for this action
  • Add a Project Role condition, referencing Administrators
  • You may consider adding a validator to ensure the field is required

If you have any questions, I'm happy to explain in more detail.

Great tutorial - many thanks for the answer - I've also found something like this and folowed it (before reading your reply) which I guess may also be useful:

You may take a look and see if those steps are sufficient.

For now my configuration for the custom field named "Other Requirements" looks like this:

as you can see I've simply unticked it to be present on ZW: Task Management Edit Issue Screen
