In Lifecycle, drop-down fields are called List Types and the drop-down menu options are called List Values. Following these steps, you can create a custom drop-down list that maps to an existing list type or to a new custom list type that you create.
To create a custom list type, follow the four-step process below.
Customizations can only be made by users with an Admin Privileges role of System Administrator.
Step 1. Create a Custom List Type
Select Admin > Project & Field Admin > Custom List Types.
- Click the Add List Type button, type the name of the list in the Title field, and then click Save.
- The system will automatically prefix the title with "Custom_".
Scroll to the bottom of the page, and then click the Publish Changes button. All unpublished fields will be immediately available within the system.
Proceed to Step 2 below.
Step 2. Add List Type Values to the Custom List Type
Select Admin > Project & Field Admin > List Types.
Select a List Type tab (Task, Test, Story/Backlog Item, etc.), and then navigate to the desired List Name section.
Click the Add button in the section to which you want the add the list type.
Enter the required information, and then click Save.
Step 3. Map the List Type Value(s) to the Custom List Type

Enter the field name in the Display Name field, select a List Type, and then click Save to save your changes and close the window.
Scroll all the way to the bottom of the Custom Fields page, and then click the Publish button. All unpublished fields will be immediately available within the system. Proceed to Step 4. Add the List Values to a Project Workspace (Important) below to make them visible to users.
Step 4. Add the List Type to a Project Workspace (Important)
