Defining a custom case status


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Define a custom case status to more precisely communicate the progress that a case makes toward resolution.

  1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Configure Case Management Processes Status Values .

  2. Review the list of case statuses, and ensure that a case status that meets your business needs does not already exist.

  3. Create a field value that defines your custom status by doing the following:

    1. In the header of Dev Studio, click Create Data Model Field Value .

    2. In the Label field, enter the text for the custom status value.

      As a best practice, use one of the following prefixes to support standard reports and maintain continuity in between your custom status and standard status values: New-, Open-, Pending-, or Resolved-. Use only alphanumeric symbols in case statuses.

    3. In the Field Name field, enter pyStatusWork.

      At run time, your application maps a value of the pyStatusWork property with a case status.
    4. In the Context section, select an application layer, applies to class, and ruleset based on how you plan to reuse the status value in your application.

      If your application supports localization, select a language-specific ruleset for the field value.
    5. Click Create and open.

    6. Optional:

      To provide a translated value for the custom status value, enter text in the To field of the Field Value form.

    7. Click Save.
