I'm investigating using Database Picker fields from script runner to link with our other systems. I have a field set up and am able to select and set values from the database fine. This will be replacing a Text Field to enforce consistency with data input, and the database itself has ~600 entries that can change regularly, so don't want to manage a select field.
Anyway having set up the Database Picker field, I can see that the Searcher is set as "None" and when I click on the "None" the screen it takes me to informs me "There are no search templates for this custom field type." and I can't search based on this field in JQL. Is this a limitation with the Database Picker of have I missed something when setting it up as looking over the instructions I don't think I missed anything?
Thanks for the suggestion Daniel. It's taken a while for me to have a chance to look at it but I can confirm that using the resource to take the id value stored by my database picker field and then pull the friendly name from the resource I can store the values in a scripted field and search on that.
It's clunky but the main thing is that it works.
