How can i modify the JIRA Agile Version Panel JQL query to be based on a custom field and not fixVersion field?

We're using a custom field called plannedVersion for all issue planning purpeses.

The fixVersion field is left empty up untill the point it was actually fixed, and it's beeing filled with the correct value.

In this senario, since the planning panel in the Agile board is based on the fixVersion value, all the filters results are empty.

Is there a way we can modify the version panned JQL query so that it is based on our cutom field?

Also, is there a way we can change the planning board table template so that it will present the plannedVersion field insted of the fixVerion field?

BTW, we are working with JIRA Agile v6.5 and JIRA v6.2.7

Code. You will need to hack the core code in the Agile plugin. For a minimal change (which is still going to require quite a bit of development), you'll only be able to hack it to use a "version" type custom field.


very similar situation here. As you (Nic) state here"Fix Version" can be understood in two different ways ("Issue was fixed in Version" or "To be fixed in Version").

With JIRA Agile we are bound to the latter case.

But that field is (imho) usually named "Planned Version" or "Target Version".

As core-coding is not an option for us, we have to
- tell our teams that "Fix Version" actually means "Target Version"
- create a custom field that represents the "Issue was fixed in Version"
- give that field a short descriptive name that distinguishes it from "Fix Version" (any ideas welcome!)

Or am I overlooking something and there are other options for us?

Thanks, Björn
