Save to custom field not on the screen

I’m trying to find a way to save data to a custom field from my plugin without having that field displayed on the user’s issue screen. I can’t seem to find if this is possible or not, any ideas?

@x2boarder Are you trying to just store data or do you want to have a field that users can change?

I’m just trying to store data, but I want it in Jira so JQL can still filter it.

I’m storing the issue ID so the linkage is maintained if it moves projects, but what I want the user to see is the Key and Title.

Hi, @x2boarder,

It seems issue properties with JQL indexing could work for you. Check out this documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/jira-entity-properties/

Best regards
Krzysztof
