date fields in JIRA, no matter if custom or system fields, are bein displayed in the "Dates" area. Until now I could live with that.
Now I had to create a generic workflow with x milestones. My customer wants the name of the milestone and the corresponding due date (as configured in my tab "milestones") displayed together. Has anyone an idea how I could accomplish that?

Another option is to tweak the bundled view issue plugin!
I think that Jobin is suggesting that you create a new custom field type - it can be the same as the standard off-the-shelf Date custom field (if you have a license for Jira, you could download the source and see how that one works), but you tweak it slightly so that Jira thinks it's plain text (even though you could retain the date/time output, field handling and so-on)
Can this be of any help ?

return "Milestone: " + customfield_10011 + " Due: " + dueDate;
