Profields custom fields

eazyBI for Jira Server and Cloud

Profields version 5.2 or later is supported, as well as Profields Cloud.

Profields is a Jira add-on for defining custom fields for Jira projects (and not for individual issues).

The following Profields custom field types are supported:

TypeComments
TextCan be imported as a Project dimension property.

Number UPDATED

Can be imported as a measure and a Project dimension property

Starting from the eazyBI version 6.2, Profields number custom field measure name ends with sum, for example, "Profields <number custom field> sum".

DateCan be imported as a Project dimension property.

Duration UPDATED

Can be imported as a measure and a Project dimension property.

 Values are stored as hours.

Starting from the eazyBI version 6.2, Profields duration custom field measure name ends with sum, for example, "Profields <number custom field> sum".

User PickerCan be imported as a dimension and a Project dimension property.
Project PickerCan be imported as a dimension and a Project dimension property.
ListCan be imported as a dimension (with one or multiple values per one project) and a Project dimension property.
StatusCan be imported as a dimension and a Project dimension property. Supported since eazyBI for Jira add-on version 4.5.2 and eazyBI Private version 4.5.1

All available custom field names are shown with a Profields prefix (to ensure that names do not overlap with the standard and custom Jira issue fields). If Number or Duration custom field is imported as a measure then this measure name will end with sum (Profields number custom field sum) and will show the total sum of this custom field for projects.

Imported measures and dimensions are shown in a separate Profields group in the Analyze tab.

All selected Profields custom field values are updated during each Jira import (also during the incremental import all fields are updated).

Private eazyBI

Profields versions 5.5.5 or later are supported by Private eazyBI version 4.5.1 or later.

You can import Profields custom fields also when using Private eazyBI. Profields support is disabled by default (to avoid unnecessary REST API requests). Add the following settings in the config/eazybi.toml configuration file to enable Profields support.
