I am trying to integrate JIRA with another system. So the requirement is that a single JIRA key can refer to many cases on another system.
Also I need to store few other details from the other system related to the case, like priority etc.,
I guess by writing a custom Active Object, I will be able to get the required storage done. But how do I link it with custom field with this kind of data, display and make it searchable? Any thoughts?

hello karthik, i have to make a similar custom field- multi value custom field which stores database key of an external db record, but make it searchable within JIRA. do you mind if i ask how you ended up getting meeting your requirement?
I implemented a JSON web service to handle querying the external database and created a custom field extending AbstractMultiCFType to save the PK from external db. I have edited the views to properly display specific fields returned as JSON from web service. My issues:
- Having trouble getting my custom field class to save properly, not sure if I am overriding the correct methods in the correct way
- I know my custom searcher will be fairly complex, since I would like end users to search for values that are only being returned as JSON from the web service, is this even possible? Or do i need to store those values in JIRA in db or as an AO?
