Display custom names for Perforce job fields filled by Jira Edited

Hello Atlassian Team,

We are trying to connect our Perforce server with our Jira server. The goal is to track defects and task in Jira while keeping tracking the changes in the code in Perforce.

To associate a change in the code to a issue in Jira, we linked Jira and Perforce using the integrated interface in Jira as described here.

Using the jobspec provided by atlassian, Jira effectively feed the corresponding field, e.g. Jira automatically fills the Perforce field number 110 'IssueStatus' with the status of the issue.

We'd like to display  e.g 'Progression' instead of 'IssueStatus' for the Perforce field number 110. If we change this string in the Perforce jobspec, we got the error:

com.perforce.api.CommitException error: Error in job specification.error: Error detected at line 8.error: Unknown field name 'issuestatus'

when testing the connection (in Jira > Administration Tab > Perforce >Connection Status > Button "Test Connection"). It seems like Jira uses some hard-coded fields names to find the fields to fill instead of the key number.

How can we display custom job names in Perforce while keeping the automatic creation of job on issue creation in Jira ?

Thanks !
