We are in the process of upgrading Jira server (software) to version 8.20
After doing the upgrade in a dev environment, we've noticed that there is a new custom field automatically created "Team" and this field is locked
This causes a problem for us as we already have a custom field called Team.
Is there anyway to remove/delete this custom field? what is its purpose?
There is no way to remove this custom field, it's necessary for the functioning of some of the advanced apps. You'll need to either migrate your existing field over into it, or rename your existing field to something to distinguish it from Team.
The two fields work differently.
Tempo doesn't get to tell Atlassian how to implement fields in their Advanced Roadmaps, and Atlassian doesn't tell Tempo what to do in their apps.
I do understand they are talking to each other about it, with the move to be dropping Tempo Teams and Tempo using the Atlassian one instead, but I've no idea where they are with it.
As far as we (Tempo) knows, there are no known incompatibilities with the Atlassian and Tempo Team Fields. Theirs is a separate/different field from ours.
It's likely there's something else going on with your settings that's causing the behavior you are seeing.
Please contact the Tempo on-prem support team directly so they can help you diagnose the underlying issue.
