Since our upgrade to Jira 6.0.4 (from 5.1.3) A field called gh.epic.lable.name (description: gh.epic.label.desc) has suddenly appeared in the Create Issue screen when I select the Epic Issue Type.
The "gh" bit hints at it being related to Greenhopper. Apart from that, I haven't found any helpful information about it despite various searches here, in Atlassian documentation and Google. So:
Thanks in advance for any help. J
Yes, we've always had Greenhopper installed and it's working fine otherwise.
BTW, we followed the upgrade procedure here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA060/Upgrading+JIRA+Using+a+Rapid+Upgrade+Method
...and everything is pretty standard in our installation.
Hey Ricardo, thanks for the response.
You are probably correct, though I notice that the description of GHS-9193 implies that the bug is mostly about incorrect display names being created for these fields by the Greenhopper installation process.
Unfortunately, while GHS-9193 advises administrators to simply rename these fields it isn't clear what they should be renamed to.
Also, I still haven't been able to find out why the field is mandatory (it wasn't a default, mandatory field when creating Epics in v5.1.3) and what information should be entered into it.
If you can shed some further light please that would great. Cheers, J
