Add Custom Jira Fields to Cards
As a Jira admin, I would like to add/sync a custom field that I have created in Jira with a card, in order to ensure that custom field is filled out upon card/user story creation.
As a Jira Admin, we require a value be selected for a custom field before creating a user story in Jira. When creating stories from StoriedOnBoard (SOB), the custom field is not available and will shoot back an error when attempting to push a card to Jira. This forces users to create cards in Jira and pull into SOB and devaluing the use of the tool.
Yes, it's a great idea to have custom fields in general, not necessarily plugged to JIRA. These custom fields could be as number, text, enum or tags.
And if the field is a number, we could decide from "release" status the aggregation of this custom field as a sum or average?

I'm in agreement - I have to do similar. I export data from Jira, concatenate fields to the description and then create boards by import.
If we could have custom fields pull in to the description box, this would save a lot of pain and make the tool extremely valuable to the organisations I've worked with which use StoriesOnBoard.

We'd need this before we plugged in the Jira integration. We have a lot of custom fields in Jira and currently have to export the cards from SOB and someone from PMO adds the custom fields to the spreadsheet before we import them into Jira.
