is it possible to configure a field that is locked by a plugin (Tempo)?

Many screens in our Jira instance show the Tempo team on Stories, Epics, and Tasks. I'd like to configure the default value of these fields as inherited from the parent issue but the corresponding custom field is shown as 'Locked'.

Is there anything I can do, in Jira or Tempo, to pverrule that lock and configure that inheritance? 

Thanks in Advance,

Hi Gianfrancesco,

Locked field can't be setup a lot, and it's done on purpose as they are not standard field. Tempo Teams are managed by Tempo plugin and might differ from Jira's default field management.

You might find a way to prefill that field with a default value using workflow postfunctions but I don't think you'll manage to do so with Custom Field admin UI.

Hope this helps.


Hi Micky, 

thanks a lot, I think we can sort this out via post function.
