Re: Increasing Custom Fields

You cannot increase the maximum limit in Header table.

Not sure about PPM 8.0

Please add the fields in Detail Table.

Re: Increasing Custom Fields

Yes I think Mahem is correct. You cannot add more fields in Request Header existing Section as there is a limit( not sure about Newer versions). If possible, you will probably see a field called MAX FIELDS in Reqeust Header Types just like Request Types.
But as a Workaround, you can create a New section under Request Details and then Push it Up the layout. That way , you will have Two Sections under Header - Summary and New One.
We have also utilized other method in couple of our reqeusts. We have moved some of the fileds to Details and then utilized that parameter for New field. Of course you will have to make sure the corresponding existing data are moved as well.

Re: Increasing Custom Fields

Hi, Does increasing the number of fields in request details cause any performance drag?

Thanks.

Re: Increasing Custom Fields

HP advices not to add more than 300 fields in Detail Section. But they do not stop us from adding more fields.

We in one project added 450 fields, I don't see any issues.

Re: Increasing Custom Fields

You can add values to the dropdown by adding values in this validation "CRT - Max Custom Fields". Thanks!
