Server plugging have a custom field and it's field type is also a custom field type which created by using Plugins2 framework.

Connect can't handle some of the complex things a p2 add-on can do for fields, but you can do some stuff.


Hi thanks for the quick reply. In our scenario ( server plugging ) custom field is rendered as a custom component and its contain separated three links. Its seems hard to achieve these kind of requirement with Issue Field module because its only support for string, text, single_select, multi_select, number type and Its not support to set custom UI template for the custom-field.  

I think you are stuck with Connect - the field module really does only support those types of field.
