You mean existing custom fields?

If so, then no. Your existing fields are custom field types which are not provided by this plugin. You'd need to convert them to the new types.

You can change custom field type from JIRA standard single and multi select to Project Specific Select Field since version 2.0. you can do this as described here https://confluence.atlassian.com/plugins/servlet/mobile#content/view/158357, but please notice that this is not officially supported by Atlassian. Cheers, Holger
I will write some documentation in the Wiki of Project Specific Select Field next week to explain migration of existing JIRA standard single and multi select. Hope this will help you.
