DateTime custom field does not show in Issue Navigator

Issue navigator doesn't seem to support datetime customfields. They don't show in the columns (even though I can select them in Configure Columns) nor in the left panel where I can pick custom fields under the Custom Field section.

Is this correct? any workaround?

This is Jira 4.4.

Thank you.

Some custom fields will not appear in the isssue navigator if the custom field's context does not match the search criteria.

For example: In the custom field configuration, you set the context to issue type "Bug" only.

If you search for all issue type in issue navigator, the custom field will not be displayed as one of the column even if you have configured which columns should appear.

If you confine your search to issue type "Bug", the custom field will be displayed.

In case you are wondering, this is a behaviour of JIRA. See
