Setting up custom Trac Fields

1. Make sure Custom ticket fields plugin is installed an enabled.

2. Go to Trac’s New Ticket page.

3. Right click on it and select View source.

4. Field name will be same as the name of the custom field (not label), value will be same as added by you while creating that custom field. For example, If I created a cusStom field with name- browser , label- In which browser you tested? and options- Firefox, Safari and Chrome. Now , in this case our field name will be browser and if I want all reported defects to have Safari as value then I will write safari in value field of test Collab.
