ActiveControl 8.50 (and actually 8.40.1 Cumulative Patch) introduces an enhancement to the existing Shiftleft: Check Custom Field Entered (0057) analyser.

Shiftleft: Check Custom Field Entered (0057) was added a few years ago as part of ActiveControl 7.0 to enable customers to check that a specific custom text field had been populated with any value. This was subsequently enhanced as part of ActiveControl 8.2, to also cover Dropdown, Checkbox and Date custom field types.

As part of latest ActiveControl release, it is now possible for 0057 Analyser to check for a specific value in a field (rather than the field being empty). One example use-case for this new capability is for Customers that want to flag if a custom field integrated across from other tools like ServiceNow or JIRA do not have a specific value.

Figure: 0057 Analyser can now (optionally) warn if the Custom Field does NOT have a specific (configurable) value.

Configuration Steps

New CUSTF1_VAL, CUSTF2_VAL, CUSTF3_VAL parameters can be configured as required, to check for specific value in up to three Custom fields.

More information on this Enhancement be found in this online Change Note.
