Summary0002353: An unassigned Custom Feild can not be deleted

"You can neither delete, either change type because a value has been assigned to this custom field by user on an test specification or execution"

I just tried the demo version (1.7.3) and I could delete even an assigned CF successfully, however, in In 1.8.1 even an unassigned CF cant be deleted.

We know problem exists on 1.8.1, and we will work to solve it, but we can not give you a precise date for release.
In any case this bug IMHO is a minor one.

Current experience regarding this issue:
Once you type anything in CF field a value is assigned to the field, so it can't be deleted. That makes sense. But it is expected to be able to remove/delete the CF after removing all characters you type into the CF. I tried it again today. I could delete both asigned and unassigned CF as long as nothing entered into the field. After typing some character and saving it I openthe test cases for editing again and removed whatever was typed then save it. After that I could not delete CF anymore.

IMHO this is basic referential integrity... should work this way. you should be though able to unassign the CF from the Project and add a new one.

If you want you can rename the old CF and name the new one as the OLD CF name for keeping it same.

Hi Amit,
As I understood, you're saying a defined CF, which is assigned and used at least once, can not be deleted by "Delete" button ever. In taht case, the "Delete" option is not doing much and should be removed to not raise any question in user mind.

I still believe users shall be able to delete an unwanted CF, otherwise after a while, there would be a huge number of defined CF sitting there uselessly.
