Adding Custom Field to Issue Summary

https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/Adding+Custom+Fields+to+Email

I have tried the above on jira4.1, unfortunately it doesn't work. I am basically trying to add a text custom field which should be straight forward.

Does the answer help you?

Hi Christian

No, it doesn't work for me. I am not sure whether it works for 4.1

At the bottom of your attached link, I have already posted a question about documentation for 4.1, however, I still haven't got any response

Is anthing in the logs? If not, take a baby step first. See if you can get hard coded text in the email. Just add something like "HelloWorld", to the .vm file and see if you can get that sent out. If that works, then your process to update the template is correct and you should be good to go with added the custom field and make sure you're using the correct field ID.
