How to copy and export Jira custom fields

Important

Copying and exporting Jira custom fields requires Jira Administrator Permissions and the Tempo Administrator permission.

You can select any of your defined Jira custom fields and copy them to your Tempo database. Once copied, the custom field values are included when you export a Logged Time report to Excel or CSV formats for additional processing. They are also available when using the Tempo Servlet API.

The custom field information is not shown in Tempo reports, only in the export.
