I am trying to add fields in a Related Cases Related list for a Pagelayout in Case object. I am not able to add fields like Record Type, Case Description etc Snap shot of the issue here

What could be the reason. I dont see the fields Available section to add fields.

Also the Second question is to add this related list in visualforce page. Is there a tag to add this. Please let me know.

I am a System administrator.

1) I am not too sure WHY those field are not available. Looks like this functionality is not available yet according to this.

2) You can use <apex:relatedList> tag to display related list of records on a VF page

  • Got the solution for the 1st question. But what will be the related object in the related list for Related Cases. Do you have the solution Commented Apr 3, 2014 at 2:36
  • You can find the relationship name if you go on the child object's lookup field to the parent (in setup). It's the "Child Relationship Name" field. For custom objects you will need to append __r in your code. Commented Apr 3, 2014 at 2:40
  • That is standard related list for a Case Object. We will not have relationship name. So I need the value for List attribute in apex:relatedList Commented Apr 3, 2014 at 2:43

I think, the reason why you are not seeing fields is because of field permissions that was not set as 'read/write' for the profile
