Custom Field Synchronization

A custom field is required when a field available in JIRA (for example, issue_number) is not available in AccuWork. In order to synchronize data or information between JIRA and AccuWork a new field (for example, issue_number) is created in AccuWork. This is done so that the field issue_number in JIRA can be mapped to the field issue_number in AccuWork. This ensures that any change made to the value of the field issue_number in JIRA are immediately reflected in the value of issue_number field in AccuWork.

The table below lists the Custom Fields supported in the current version of AccuSync.
