When you say "create a custom field", do you mean "create a new field of one of the existing types" or "implement a new type of custom field"?
It's a similar question for the quick filter - do you mean add a new filter to a board, or implement one inside the Connect add-on?
Regarding the custom field, I would like to understand both options - creating a new field of existing type, and creating a new type. Are either or both possible?
Regarding the quick filter, I want a new quick filter to appear on the user's board (on the Backlog screen) upon installing the add-on. Can this be done?
I'm not sure about the first - I think an admin-level Connect add-on might be able to create custom fields of existing types, but I've not tried it myself.
A Connect add-on can not add a new type of field, but it could conceivably create a way to store field-like data outside JIRA, so it would look similar.
A Connect add-on would not be able to reconfigure a board as far as I can tell.
