Maintenance Status Types

Model Maintenance items such as Changes, Issues, Defects and Tasks pass through a series of stages whereby each item is raised, assessed, approved, worked on, reviewed and completed. As an item passes through each stage, it can be assigned a Status from this system-provided list:

  • Active
  • Complete
  • Deferred
  • Merged
  • New (the initial default status)
  • No Action
  • Paused
  • Rejected
  • Rework
  • Verified

The Maintenance Status values are defined on the 'Maintenance Status' page of the 'General Types' dialog. You can add to or replace any of these values with your own custom values.



Configure > Reference Data > Model Types > General Types > Maintenance Status

Lists the currently available Test status types.

Move the selected type higher or lower in the 'Type' list.

This defines the ordering used in the Maintenance 'Status' drop down combo boxes, and in sorting any report or list when the Maintenance Status Type is used as the sort-by property.

For example: you have set up a number of Change items on a Package, and you run a report on the Change items; then you sort on the 'Status' column. The report entries are grouped by status, in the order you defined in the 'Type' list.

Sort Alphabetically

Reorganize the entries in the 'Type' list into alphabetical order.

Restore Defaults

Remove all customized Maintenance status values and restore the system defaults.


  • You can transport customized Maintenance status types between models, using the 'Configure > Model > Transfer > Export Reference Data' and 'Import Reference Data' ribbon options
