Overview

Support for different JIRA field types varies with the Dataplane report being used.

For example, historical reports support a different set of fields than current reports, since not all JIRA fields are indexed historically. In addition, only numeric-type fields can be used where Dataplane requires a numeric field, and only date-type fields can be used when plotting issues on a timeline.

The tables on this page indicate the extent of support for different JIRA field types within Dataplane. Here is a key to the table columns:

Add-On Custom Fields

Dataplane directly supports custom fields provided by the popular Adaptavist ScriptRunner and Valiantys nFeed add-ons.

For more details on how to work with ScriptRunner and nFeed fields, see:

Dataplane also supports all third-party add-on custom fields that Atlassian defines as "stattable"—those which support the standard JIRA CustomFieldStattable interface. Most of the standard JIRA Core dashboard gadgets support only stattable fields, so if a third-party custom field is available in one of the standard JIRA dashboard gadgets, it will generally be available in Dataplane as well. When in doubt, ask your add-on vendor if the desired custom field is "stattable", or contact Arsenale for help.

As a backup option, there is a third-party add-on called Stattable Searchers which can make certain non-stattable, third-party custom fields appear as stattable to JIRA Core dashboard gadgets and to Dataplane.
