Working with Jira custom fields

Your projects may have several custom fields in addition to the Jira built-in fields . Reporting on custom fields is quite easy with view26

To add a custom field as a chart filter follow the below steps.

  1. Start in Datasource Page of your Dashboard ( Settings->Datasources)
  2. Click on the "Configure." button at the top of the page
  3. Choose "Field Mapping"
  4. From  the bottom of the page select "Add Model Field"
  5. Provide a meaningful name for the field and select the field type ( string, lookup list, user list etc)
  6. Map your custom field from the list against the model field.
  7. Once you have performed the mapping save the configuration by clicking  "update" ( top of the page)
  8. The new model field is now available in the chart filter panel as a configuration option.
