Ability to Hide/Remove 'Type'


We found the need to replace the required field of ‘Type’ with a custom multi-select, required field called ‘Test Case Type’. While we ignore the old field of ‘Type’, I was wondering if there is a way to hide/remove this field from projects. Our clumsy workaround has been to rename the default value with ‘Ignore–use Test Case Type’.



You could write a custom UI script to hide specific fields from the UI, if you are familiar with JavaScript. Please note however that hiding a field from the UI in this way wouldn’t prevent being able to update it via API or data import. We have a small guide and some examples of UI scripts available here:

I hope this helps!
