Summary0024228: mantis_custom_field_table - add unique index on name

IMHO creation of two custom fields with the same name has to be blocked not only at application level but also at DB level, that's why adding a unique index on the name could be a good thing.


TagsNo tags attached.

You can use the same name for fields with different definitions in different projects.
For example have a field Reseller of type enumeration with different reseller lists in different projects.

Do you agree that we can set your issue to resolved?

You did not provide any feedback; I am therefore resolving this issue as "no change required".

Feel free to reopen the issue at a later time and provide the requested information.

I apologize for the missing feedback.
IMHO if you need to have the same concept with different domains on different projects is not ok using the same name.
If custom field management is done by a small group of people you can manage the fact that system blocks you.

One annoyance: the custom field api that allow you to get Custom Field BY NAME is going to return multiple records, then making some kind of implementation difficult.

thanks again for your product
