We need to create custom fields within the project information section. This is not the same as the Key and numbers for individual issues. We have numerous projects, each containing a few issues (which are already identified by the Key and number system). But, we need to be able to create a custom number for each project itself to help us keep track of them. Is this possible to do in JIRA 5.0? If not, are there any avaliable pulg-ins that allows us to do this?
onDemand is the hosted version of JIRA provided by Atlassian. They have policies on what plugins are installed.
Other, downloaded, version is what you install yourself and manage. You can customize it to your heart's content because you "own" the instance.
How do I make this metadata appear in the summary of the project? So far it only has its own tab 2 tabs down from the summary tab. I want to add a new field into the summary tab. I want the field to be titled "Project ID" and be visible in the Description box. How do I do that?
For the field to appear as shown above you will have to modify the Jira source code , A better option would be to create your own plugin which will provide a facility to add the product id to your project and display it on the summary tab of the project .
Well I can't create my own plug-in. I am just an intern. Seeing as how we are only testing JIRA out to see if it will be useful, it would be a waste of time trying to create our own plug-in.
Custom fields were avaliable in previous versions of JIRA. Why would they get rid of that option?
Yes, you're mixing up "custom fields", which are done at an issue level (and always have been, at least since I started with 2.x of Jira, so nothing has been "got rid of") and the project level stuff which is a fixed list.
Custom fields are configured on a project level - you associate them with projects (and issue types), but you're not really saying "this field belongs to this project", it's actually "this field belongs to issues within this project".
The metadata plugin adds the ability to have data stored at a project level (I try not to call them "fields" myself, simply to try to avoid exactly the confusion you have run into)
That you for the passive aggressive grammar lesson. I found out how to change the project key's format so that it will accept numbers. But I don't know exactly what to type if I want letters in it too. I set it to say ([0-9]+). But I need it so it can be 2-3 letters plus numbers.
You can change the
Search for "project key settings" then replace the original line with the below line
jira.projectkey.pattern = ([A-Z][A-Z]+) to jira.projectkey.pattern = ([09A-Z][A-Z0-9]+)
This will make the project key field alpha numeric
It's officially Tuesday, which means it's officially time for another tip to help you better navigate this space we call the Atlassian Community. 😄 I got a great question from community member, Sa...
