How to add customs fields with plugins in Jira

Hello,

I have a plugin that add new custom fields types for Jira (see : https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-platform/building-jira-add-ons/jira-plugins2-overview/jira-plugin-module-types/custom-field-plugin-module).

I would like to add some fields of this new custom type when the plugin is installed , what is the correct way to do that ?

Hello,

You could

1. Implement a bean which is LifecycleAware and then implement onStart event where you would create your custom fields. You can read more here

2. You could set a bean implement InitializingBean, DisposableBean and then in the afterPropertiesSet create your custom fields.
