Hello to all,
Created database custom field "External Project" connected to database to feed JIRA forms. Creating and modifying issues works great: with Select List all allowed custom field values can be seen.
When trying to search issues in "JIRA > Issues > Search for Issues" after selecting custom field "External Project" no select list appears, no autocomplete works. Just simple text field is shown.
To find issue with proper value of custom field "External Project" I have to type exact value of that project and perform search. But there are more than 300 possible values in that field and our users cannot remember all names of projects.
Is there any way to show select list in JIRA search form for Kepler database custom field?
also noticed that limitation of DBCF, my workaround was used DBCF as dummy select list on create issue screen but transfer the value to a Jira_textfield once the issue is created. This way JIRA search would autocomplete when you search on the Jira_textfield
Try to change the field searcher. Go to the custom fields list, hover over your field, click the cog icon, choose edit and on the next sreen choose a different searcher than "Exact text" searcher.
I think you might have to re-index your instance for the change to take effect.
Hello Blazej, it did not help. Both using with Database Free Text Searcher and Database Exact Text Searcher I have to type exact value of custom field. Nobody does not need select list with all values with this plugin? Everybody must type exact value of custom field without no help (available values)? I am really surprised.
