Is it possible to integrate dates from Custom Fields in JIRA projects with Goolge Calendar?

We would like to have deployment dates that are entered into custom fields on issue creation appear, with the issue summaries, in Google Calendar. Is this possible? For example, does the 'Work Calendar' plugin allow for that?

Hi Morgan,

Sorry but I do not understand. Do you want sync custom field value to google calendar entries?

Maybe you can describe you business case.

=========== Update ===========

Morgan, thank you for the clarification.

The case your described is beyond of the Work Calendar addon scope. The addon aims to simplify time logging and provide easy and efficient overview and reporting for the logged time.

Answering if it's possible: Looks like possible. You can do it from JavaScript by listening for the issue creation event (I remember these is one) and them performing appropriate JavaScript calls to google calendar API or even better (more reliable) is to do the same on Java side by listening for Issue Creation event and then communicating to the calendar API from Java code.

Hi Volodymyr,

I mean, is it possible to create a custom date field in a JIRA project and then have events appear on a Google Calendar on whatever dates were entered into that field?

The business case is that we have a custom date field in JIRA projects called 'Deployment Date' which employees fill in when creating an issue (issues represent planned deployments here).

We would like it if on creating those issues, JIRA could send the date from that custom field to a Google Calendar, along with the text from the 'Issue Description' field, to create a Google Calendar event on that date and with that text as it's description.

Is such a thing possible with your add-on? Or do you think it's possible at all?
