I have a request from the users: they want to observe a project status in a traffic light form for a few projects at once on a dashboard. Status should have a color and a desciption. Also a history of status' changes should be supported.
What is the best way to create such feature?
I have 2 ideas about it, but may be there is smth better:
1) Custom fields at project level. As I know Jira doesn't support custom fields at the project level. But there is an addon Profields which does. With its help I can create a custom field "Project Status" and assign it to my projects. Profield also supports changes history for these fields.
2) As another way I can create a new JIRA issue type "My Project Status" and keep one per every project. I can show a few statuses at once using standart issue filter. Jira stores issues changes history, so I will get what I need.
If you're an administrator, just select the system default column configuration from the issue navigation and exclude the field by default.
Another solution is to set the field as project or issue specific, in that way the field will be only visible at the navigator when the criteria is restricted to the specific project or issue type configured for the field.
