We are currently considering purchasing Confluence & Jira for our organization. I've been playing around with JIRA and quite happy with its functionality. However, our leadership requested a simple feature which I've noticed is lacking in JIRA. i.e Being able to add custom fields at the project level, just like the way JIRA adds at the issues level. This helps the management to track the project level status/risk/phases etc. I think this would be a killer improvement to Jira. As business people can then filter on custom fields at the project level while the techies can contiue using the issues level filters as it is available today.
I could actually create custom fields throug Jelly and import data for those fields. In fact I can even import data into custom fields through CSV import into a project while creating multiple projects on the fly. I've tried this and it works. However, when I try doing a filter at the project level through dashboad. I am not able to retrieve any of that data I imported....I understand this being the fact that JIRA is focused at isssue level. I would sincerly appreciate if someone can get back to me and let me know if this is feasible for me to expect this improvement or not. Of course, this will decide wether we would replace Clearcase with Jira or not
