We need to create a custom field in Jira. But I want to be able to type the name of the product and it should to give me search suggestions with (auto complete) functionality by typing the first 3 characters.
I'm using this version 1 plugin for this specific behavior(typing the first 3 characters):
It reads the data from a db table.
This is a version 1 plugin so you need to follow the instructions here https://confluence.atlassian.com/upm/installing-add-ons-273875715.html at the Installing Plugins 1 type add-ons in JIRA and Bamboo section
You need to restart jira
Next you create a database values custom field and take note of the id
Then you need to upload a file with the sample configuration file (filled with your specific parameters) at <INSTALL_DIR>/atlassian-jira/WEB-INF/classes
The file needs to have the name jira-database-values-plugin-[customfieldid].properties with the id of the previously created custom field
Maybe you need to restart jira again
