      Atlassian Update - 23 April 2015

      Hi everyone,

      At this time, this suggestion is not on the JIRA development roadmap. However, it is supported via a free third-party plugin that is available for JIRA Server and pre-installed in JIRA Cloud. Please follow the instructions here.

      Please remember that jira.atlassian.com is one of many inputs for the JIRA roadmap. You can learn more about our process here.

      I understand that our decision may be disappointing. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

      The workflow UI is very cool but at least in the version I'm using it does not allow me to update a custom field on a transition. As far as I can tell I can only update "simple" issues (see screenshot).

      This feature would make it much simpler to add custom functionality to JIRA. It seems like quite a limitation because typically a workflow is updated to suit a company's process and in that scenario a custom field is likely to be used.

      I appreciate that I could write custom Java code for this but that's a level of effort I can't make at this point in time.
