Custom Templates with Custom Data

Postby m698322h on Mon Nov 30, 2009 12:59 pm

Hello,

I would like to create a custom template utilizing it's own user defined Custom Data and have the custom data only be shown on this template.

Example:

Template: Provision Server, I would autmatically populate the fields such as assignee, dept, category, etc.
User Data: Ram (1,2,4,8,....) GB, Processors (1,2,4, etc), applications, storage, etc.

I would like this User Data attached to the template only and not all templates.

I know how to create a template and create custom data, but not how to combine the two.

How can I go about this?

Also is it possible to create a drop down for custom data (Ram for example) where one choice only can be decided or do I have to create the process to check the fields as the ticket is saved then toss an error at the creator and force them to fix it?

Thanks

I don't think you're using the correct word.

Templates are a term in the application used to describe groupings of pre-populated fields you can apply to a form. Maybe you mean a form? You can create as many templates as you want and populate whatever fields/values you want with each, but you can't edit forms.

Yes, you can create a drop down (lookup) UDF, but if you want to enforce a value, you'll have to create a Business Rule to do that.
