Can the new Tempo Team field be re-named?

We are currently upgrading Tempo to Tempo 7.9.2. One of the problems we're encountering is the renamed Team Custom field. In our Enterprise, we had separated groups that used Tempo by having them use the default "Tempo Team" custom field while groups that aren't using Tempo for time-tracking were managed by a standard JIRA custom field called simply "Team".

Testing the upgrade, we came across several warning messages from our database about not knowing which "Team" value to draw from. In our case, it's not just filters but scripts, listeners and external WebFocus reporting that pulls from those two fields.

Is there some way that I'm not seeing about renaming that Tempo field back to "Tempo Team" rather than the automatically created, and locked, "Team" name? For us, that would be a lot less work than changing everything referencing our JIRA "Team" field.

Hi Eric, 

in the System Plugin: Tempo Teams 2.3. that comes bundled with Tempo Timesheets 7.9.2, you can rename the Teams Custom Field. This is done in the Tempo Administration, Tempo Teams, Team Field. Please take a look at for more information.

Kind regards,


Thank you Susanne ... that helped clear up our database confusion.
