Prevent customfield from adding entry to history

Hi guys,

Did anyone find a way to prevent a customfield from adding to the history tab? I use a customfield to sync some data and that customfield is later used to block transitions. The problem is that while I can prevent the customfield to fire emails via the “notifyUsers” query parameters, I didn’t find a way to block the history. And now customers are complaining about the chatter :frowning:

Thanks!

When you create your CustomFieldType I think you need to return null from getChangelogValue and getChangelogString

    @Override
    public String getChangelogValue(CustomField field, String value) {
        return null;
    }

    @Override
    public String getChangelogString(CustomField field, String value) {
        return null;
    }

@daniel3, that solution would be for Jira Server.

In Jira Cloud there is no way to opt custom fields out from contributing to the issue history.
