How to add tasks custom fields on a test instance


I’m evaluating phabricator and I’d like to test how to create custom fields on tasks (maniphest)

I created the following test instance:

I’m following this guide.

From what I understand, I have to add a maniphest.custom-field-definitions field in the instance configuracion with the json definition of the fields.

But when I head to I can see the configuration items (feed.http-hooks, security.require-multi-factor-auth, uri.allowed-protocols) but I can’t find an option to add the maniphest.custom-field-definitions.

Am I doing something wrong or is it a limmitation of the test instance?

Thanks a lot.


Go to

The configuration panel on admin only has a small number of advanced options which aren’t configurable from the instance.


Thanks a lot, I will definitely give it a try
