Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Jayant,

Your custom fields would be entered into the notification just like any other token: [VP.CUSTOM_TOKEN_NAME] for the visible value and [P.CUSTOM_TOKEN_NAME] for the hidden value. Hope this helps.

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Hi jayant,

I think it is not possible to add notification on change of custom field.Even i have raised this qquestion on forum.It is allowing us to select only few of the fields in "Request Header section" for applying the field change notification.

Thanks

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Hi Jayant,
We cannot send notifications on change of a customized field. It is only for header fields like 'Assigned To'.

We tried this some time back. Please advice if you have any solution.

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Jayant,

Now that I can see what you are trying to do, I agree the others: this is not possible. PPM will only allow you to monitor select fields that appear in the KCRT_REQUESTS table.

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Hi,

in this notification setting we have to pass the CODE VALUE rather than meaning value.

Is there way we can change this setting as per our requirement.

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

thanks all for your replies.
here is what i have done as a turnaround:
the fields which are present in the "field" section in the notification, i have changed them as per our customization by creating a different header type. but here also be careful in chosing the validation types, as we wont be able to make the changes in the token, so select only those validations which are compatible.
its a turnaround but i got what i wanted :)and am able to send the notifications on the basis of field change.

thanks again
Jayant

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

Hi Jayant.
We resolve this issue by:
1. Need send notification on field 1 change.
In list of fiels allow small numbers of fiel (8-10), application,company i.e.
How it possible?
You need create a RULE than aply on field 1 chanege to change value on field "application" to value "HP" for example.
Next you set notification on change field "application" on value "HP".
In result we have structure:
Field 1 change--> field "Application" change-->send notification by event field "Application" change to value "HP".
It's working. I check this.
Good Luck

Re: adding notifications to request type on field change

thanks Alexander for your reply. i have somewhat got your point. u intend me to use advanced default rules right?
but i am still little unclear as to how will i be able to change the fields which appear on the notifiation->field window.
can you please elaborate on this line of yours:
"You need create a RULE than aply on field 1 chanege to change value on field "application" to value "HP" for example."
the field 1 which you are pointing should be outside summary section right?

Thanks again for your concern. appreciate your help
