Target Start and Target End Date do not exist in JIRA Edited

We have Portfolio for JIRA and I see some fields such as Team available in JIRA, but I cannot find Target Start or End dates fields, despite this article suggesting I should be able to:

Any ideas?  This article pertains to JIRA Server, and we are on JIRA cloud.  Could this be the difference?

The article is referencing Portfolio for Jira, and it will some additional fields. You can also add your own custom fields if you need to have target start and target end date fields.

Hi Mikael, correct, we have Portfolio and other fields like Team are there in JIRA, but not Target Start/End dates.  They do not exist in the Custom Fields. So, this is more of a question about the JIRA Portfolio integration.

Target start date and target end date are currently only available on the server side, Cloud only have access to parent link and team fields. Here is the request to have the target end date available in cloud, JPOCLOUD-1848, and there should be one for the target start date as well, let me see if I can find it.

Here is the one for the start date, JPOCLOUD-1818

Thanks Mikael, that's great. Well maybe not, wish it was supported, but at least now I know.  I upvoted these, anything else I could do to get traction on these?

Do you have any experience using the API to get JIRA portfolio data?   This could be a temporary workaround.

Hi David,

It looks like the Jira canned fields have "Locked" next to them.  Do a find for Locked on the custom fields page.  I do see parent link as described in the article but I don't see Target Start/End.  I'm on Cloud as well.

Hope this helps,

David

Hi David.  Likewise, we have Portfolio on an cloud instance and I see the same thing on my end.  It looks like they haven't exposed that field on the front end.  That's my guess.  I'd love to see it as well.

Yeah too bad.  Mikael above shared these issues, maybe you can upvote them also!
