3.10. Custom Fields

One of the most requested features was the ability to add your own custom fields to bugs, based on your needs. With the release of Bugzilla 3.0, this dream finally comes true. Administrators can manage these fields using the "Custom Fields" link in the footer of pages. The first thing they will see is the list of existing custom fields (which is empty by default).

3.10.1. Adding Custom Fields

The "Add a new custom field" link permits you to add a new field which can be either a free text box or a drop down menu. More field types will be available in future releases.

The following attributes must be set for each new custom field:

3.10.2. Editing Custom Fields

As soon as a custom field is created, its name and type cannot be changed. If this field is a drop down menu, its legal values can be set as described in Section 3.11.1. All other attributes can be edited as described above.

3.10.3. Deleting Custom Fields

At this point, it is not possible to delete custom fields from your web browser. If you don't want to make one available anymore, mark it as obsolete. This way, you will preserve your DB referential integrity.
