Adding Tempo custom fields to your Jira next-gen projects makes it much easier for you to create, manage and report on Tempo data such as the Account and Team fields - and allows you to integrate it with data from Jira classic projects too.

Enabling Tempo App Fields in Jira Next-Gen Projects

Enabling app fields within Jira next-gen projects requires the Jira Administrator or Next-gen Project Administrator permission.

To add Tempo custom fields to your next-gen projects, you first need to enable Tempo products within your project settings.

  1. Navigate to your next-gen Project settings.

  2. Select Apps and then App fields.  

  3. Toggle to enable access to your Tempo product(s).

Adding Tempo Custom Fields to Jira Next-Gen Issue Types

Adding Tempo custom fields to next-gen issue types requires the Jira Administrator or Next-gen Project Administrator permission.

Once you've enabled Tempo's app fields, you will have access to Tempo's two custom fields: Team and Account. By adding the Team and Account issue fields to your next-gen issue types, you will see these fields when you create, view, and edit these types of issues – and will be able to report on them as well.

  1. To add the Tempo custom fields, go to next-gen Project settings and select Issue types.

  2. Team and Account will be included in the list on the right under Previously-created fields.

  3. Simply drag Team and Account from the side panel into Context fields and save the changes to add them to your issue types.

Linking Teams to Next-Gen Projects

Once you have added the Account field to the Jira next-gen issue types you will automatically be able to access a list of accounts in your projects. However, to access a Team from within an issue, you need to first link the team(s) to your Jira next-gen project.

  1. Navigate to Apps - Tempo - Teams.

  2. Select the team(s) you wish to link to the Jira next-gen project and add the link to the project.

  3. The team(s) will now be accessible from within your Jira next-gen project.
