Extend Forge Custom Field Type types

Hi!
I’m currently working on creating forge custom field types.
My goal is to create a custom field type that overrides the default date picker.
In the docs https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/forge/manifest-reference/modules/#jira-custom-field-type--beta- there are only 4 types

  • string
  • number
  • user
  • group

But I’ve tried to use datetime and it works. It does not mention in the docs.

So my question is:

  • Could Atlassian update forge custom field docs?
  • Is there any other types that available for re-use? Also, I’ve tried date to override a date picker, but it does not work.

Hello @belokurbohdan,

The datetime type is still in development. It might work, but its behaviour is undefined until it’s officially released, and may change at any time without notice (or even stop working altogether). Because of that it’s generally not a good idea to use undocumented features.

We should finish it shortly, though, so stay tuned.

We were not planning to offer the date type at this time, nor any other type apart from those that are already available plus datetime. However, feel free to raise an appropriate feature request if you would like to see some other types, we will be happy to take it into account and possibly reevaluate our plans.
