I am trying to display a single JIRA issue on a maintenance calendar based on a custom date field called "Scheduled Date and Time"
I can see this field at the Project display level, but when I set a JQL to display only one issue (the only way I can ID how to add a single issue to the calendar) the custom field vanishesfrom the Single Date selection.
Aside from setting an event and just pasting a URL to the issue, is there a way to simply add one JIRA issue to a calendar?
Ah, yes, I think you've run into a long-standing "feature" in Jira, whereby a field is only shown in search results if it is valid for ALL the issues that MIGHT be returned by a search.
Have a look at your "scheduled date and time field" in the list of custom fields. I bet it will say "Context: Project:infrastructure and tools". This means a query that does not explicitly say "search project infrastructure and tools", *might* get issues from project "fred" (yes, even if you say "and issue = xxx") which will not have the field, so the result kills off ALL the results.
Frankly, it's a bit of a pain, counterintuitive, and something I've repeatedly asked Atlassian to fix (the search should show the field at all times, but with n/a or something to sho w it's not valid. Not just drop the whole lot silently)
As it turns out, I get the custom field to show up if I specify the project name in the query.
"project = "Infrastructure and Tools" AND issue = AUTHINF-12267"
shows "Scheduled Date and Time"
"issue = AUTHINF-12267"
Certainly strange behavior in my opinion.
