Handling JIRA custom fields while creating issue

Postby anandj82 » Wed Dec 26, 2012 7:34 pm

I was able to successfully create issue in the JIRA On Demand. However, when I am trying to create issue in the JIRA used by my organization, it fails saying there are few more parameters required. These are mostly custom fields that are specific to our organization. My goal is to make testlink handle these custom fields and create the issue from testlink directly

I understand that the addIssue() function in jirasoapinterface class can be modified to accommodate the custom fields as mentioned here:
I wrote some hardcoded values and got it to work. But I would like to update these fields dynamically from the test link UI. If I introduce a custom field, will I be able to read its value and use it in jirasoapinterface class? Also, how can I read the existing values such as

Am I going in the right direction to achieve my goal? BTW, I did search the forum and google before putting this question down.

you need to read and understand how the testlink class used to manage Custom Fields work (cfield_mgr.class.php).
Other choice is request and support the custom development you need, to our development team.
