Jira multiline custom field can hold up to 32,767 characters. If you store very large checklists than data might not fit entirely into custom field and sync won't work as expected.
Every Jira workflow contains an "Issue Created" or "Generic Event" post-function by default. These post functions are required by the custom fields integration to work correctly and you should not remove them.
If you are still using the old custom fields, created and configured manually by Jira administrator, then please follow our migration guide to start using new fields.
Issue Checklist delivers the following custom fields. They are created automatically when the Issue Checklist is installed and they stay in sync with checklist content.
|Field||Description|| "Save checklist data to Jira custom fields" must be enabled? ||Works in Next-Gen projects|
Shows a number of completed checklist items versus the total number of items in the checklist, e.g. "
|Checklist Progress %|
Shows a number of completed checklist items versus the total number of items in the checklist, e.g. "33"
Used for flexible blocking workflow transition using regular expressions.
For simple use cases, the built-in validator is more suitable.
|Checklist Content YAML (deprecated)|
Deprecation notice: this field stores only items from the default checklist and is ignored if multiple checklists are enabled. Use Checklist Text instead.
Stores default checklist items and can be used for various purposes, e.g. REST calls, advanced JQL search, migrating checklists between Jira sites or importing checklist data from Trello or CSV. Manipulation of this field requires YAML support.
|Checklist Text||Stores all checklists and all items and can be used for various purposes, e.g. show checklist on Issue Create screen, REST calls, advanced JQL search, migrating checklists between Jira sites or importing checklist data from Trello or CSV. Its content is more user-friendly than YAML.||Yes||No|
|Checklist Template||Stores list of templates along with items for each template. Selecting a value for that field on a given Jira issue applies the selected template to the issue. ||No||Yes|
Custom fields extend Issue Checklist functionality and provide more tight integration with Jira.
