Products custom fields
Via the Products plugin, you could add custom fields for both Type and Format. Please check the guides below,
In order to create a new custom field for products, go to Administration -> Custom fields and click on New custom field in the right upper corner. You will have to choose the type of object for it first. Notice that we have provided one custom field for Products already - the vendor field.
Next, fill in some details.
You can also edit existing custom fields - just click on the name of the field.
After you use custom fields in your product, it should look like the below:
If you want to filter data based on your new custom field, just check this option in. You can also decide whether this custom field will be a required field, available for all projects or just some of them, available for certain trackers and whether it will be a private custom field or visible for other users.
Custom fields are usually used for filtering data - they are available in the filters dropdown list. To see the custom field in the list of filters you need to edit this field and check Used as a filter in.
Since version 2.1.3 of the Products plugin, you could also set Format of the custom field to be Product as well.
So, you could add it for Issues, for example. And then you would be able to select the existing products from the drop-down menu.
And then, the added products would look like this.
