: Is there any way of making some of the default fields mandatory?
: e.g. to make the Responsibility field like the Synopsis, so a CR cannot be saved without assigning responsibility to a user.

: I know you can change the default value of the existing mandatory fields, but it would be better to do what's described above.

: Also, is it possible to create custom fields and make them mandatory?

: The problem is that even if there are default values users sometimes omit those fields resulting in wrong information. I think it would be better to have those fields blank so users be enforced to complete them.

: Thanks,

Hi Stavros,

No, you cannot. Lets say that CR?s are entered by end-users via StarTeam?s web client; such users would not be allowed to enter a name in the Responsibility field. The same is also true if a tester discovers a bug and enters that into the system. Testers are not the people that assign a particular developer to do the work. It is also very common for development shops to have one person that is responsible for filtering reported bugs, as the reported bug might not be a bug, but ?as designed?. If a bug, then this person would assign the work to a developer.
