Tempo Team field interferes with Portfolio team field preventing inheritance of team field

My company has Tempo on our Jira account and ever since, we cannot use the workflow to set up post functions that inherit the Portfolio "Team" field from the parent task. The workflow only gives the option for one team field, which doesn't make sense because the Tempo "Team" field and the Portfolio "Team" field have different ids. I cannot use automation for Jira to achieve this either because the Portfolio "Team" field isn't an available option.

This is very frustrating because our team field is what our boards are filtering by for our teams. Is there a workaround for this? I have searched far and wide on these forums but to no avail.

Hi @Geoffrey Melle,

I don't think this has anything to do with Tempo being in your instance alongside advanced roadmaps. But setting the field is indeed not supported through plain selection.

I have struggled with setting the Team field when I wanted to set a default value to it. And a fellow Community leader helped me out greatly in this thread.

To retake the headline:


Go to Automation, and choose to create a new rule. Set the components as follows:

  • Trigger: Issue Created
  • Action: Edit Issue

In Edit Issue, select "More Options" then in the Additional Fields section enter:

"fields": {


^ In this example, 10123 is the Team field's custom field ID, and 5 is the Team ID

Obviously, your trigger may be something else as well.  

Thanks Walter, this did work for me. Actually a colleague of mine sent this fix to me this morning. I am still annoyed that we cannot use this team field in a post function within the workflow.
