When entering bugs/defects into QC (we're using 8.2), it it possible to make a field conditionally required? That is, I don't want that field to be required all the time, only when some other field has a certain value.
Yes. Login to your QC project. Go to Tools->Customize...
Then go to Setup workflow. Now you have 2 options, one is to do it through GUI (Script Generation - List customization for Defect Module or other 2 options). Else you can also use coding to change the behaviour in Script Editor.
I may be wrong but it seems that tools->customize is only in 9.0 He's in 8.2 which means he has to access the workflow via the customize tab on the log-in screen. Plus he has to have admin rights for the project.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
