      Problem Definition

      Document link: https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-platform/guides/fields/tutorial-creating-a-custom-field-type
      The current developer documentation for "Creating a Custom field Type" is outdated.
      Attempting to follow the tutorial with the latest SDK version throws incompatibility errors:

      Caused by: org.springframework.beans.factory.UnsatisfiedDependencyException: Error creating bean with name 'com.atlassian.jira.plugin.customfield.example.JiraCustomField': Unsatisfied dependency expressed through constructor argument with index 0 of type 
      [com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.persistence.CustomFieldValuePersister]: : No unique bean of type [com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.persistence.CustomFieldValuePersister] is defined: 
      Unsatisfied dependency of type [interface com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.persistence.CustomFieldValuePersister]: expected at least 1 matching bean; 

      Suggested Solution

      Update the documentation to reflect JIRA 6.4.x and 7.0.x.
