Adding the Tempo Team Custom Field to Jira Issue Screens

You need Jira Administrator permissions to add a custom field to Jira issue screens.

In order to link your team to a project's issues, the Tempo Team Custom Field needs to be visible in your Jira screens. Jira Administrators can associate the Team field to the appropriate screens. 

Once this is done, you can then link a team to their Jira issues using the Teams drop-down list there. You need to first link your team to the corresponding Jira project for their name to appear in the Teams list.
