nFeed & Kepler custom fields and Behavior plugin not working

I tried to use nFeed custom database fields (as well as custom fields created with Kepler's plugin) with Behaviors plugin (specifying read-only property and scripts) and found that such fields are not affected by Behavior's hook-ups: neither read-only property can be set up nor scripts fire

Anyone has a similar problem? Thanks!

The behaviours plugin needs to "understand" each field to do things like set it read only, and read the value etc. Making it understand all possible custom field types provided by plugins is not possible.

If you go to, search for nfeed in the top right search box, then narrow down on "jira behaviours plugin", you will see some issues and comments about this. Sorry, it doesn't support a direct link to the search.

I'm not sure about your comment about the kepler field. Scripted field created with script runner, and sil fields, are calculated, so can't be on a screen. So I don't see how they could fire an event.

Thanks, Jamie, for answering - I read all the comments - they definitely give a clue

Hi Jamie, I also need to use nfeed with behaviours. I can set read-only & hidden properties of custom-fields if the type is Kepler DBCF but if I use Nfeed I can not set these properties. Is there a way to use nfeed custom-fields with Behaviours? Reagrds,


Here is some information regarding the compatibility of nFeed with Behaviours:
