Default Value for User Custom Fields

Hi RT Folks,

Am i missing something? I see no option to select a “default value” for
"select one value" type custom fields if they are of lookuptype RT::User?

i tested and if it’s RT::Ticket - default appears, but RT::User - that
input field has disappeared?

I added “Users” to line 2016 in CustomField.pm

 return 0 unless $self->LookupType =~ 

/RT::(?:Ticket|Transaction|User)$/;

and it seems to behave as expected. But RT::Users must have been left
out for a reason?

Possibly not.

Here is the commit in which the code was initially committed:

0bb6abb2f4641896d3a77ccca5bb0c3cdc699026

And here is a commit where BP adds Assets to the list of CFs that can
have defaults:

5d851b77f275252578ce29c21a652c88a6663ab6

So I am guessing that it was just an oversight that Users and Queues
aren’t in the list of CFs that can have default values.

BP, any commentary on this?

Thanks,
