Updating Field Lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am adding custom fields to the database and altering one of my work items to display the field.  The field can be any of a list of values.  This list will constantly be changing, but I could derive the possible values by doing a database query.


    Is there a way to update the list without constantly modifying the process template?


    Can I base a list on a query?


    Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks.

  • Global lists are useful for this purpose where the list could be frequently changing and it would be convenient to update the list using separate app or API instead of modifying work item definition often. Here is a nice how to article on global lists: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms404878.aspx
