A Status entered by user custom field type represents a user who last (or first) moved the issue to the specified status and is displayed as a String representing the user display name. It is a read-only field.

  2. Go to the Administration icon  and click on it.
  3. Click on Issues - > Custom fields.

Search template

When creating a Status Entered by User custom field type, you can configure the Search template as User Picker & Group searcher to be able to search issues for a user in that custom field. If you select None for the searcher, then you won’t see any reference to this field in the Issue Navigator search fields. Note that changing a custom field searcher requires a re-index.

Specifying the status(es) to look for

To specify the status(es) to look for:

  1. Locate the custom field on the Custom Fields administration page.
  2. Click on the cog wheel and click on Configure
  3. Click on Edit Status(es).
  4. Select the status(es).
  5. Click on Save.

You can also configure the custom field to look for the current status.

Specifying the order of selected status(es) to look for

To specify the order of the selected status(es) that the field should look for;

  1. Locate the custom field on the Custom Fields administration page.
  2. Click on the cog wheel and click on Configure.
  3. Select either Latest or Earliest from the Status order field to capture the last or first status entered order respectively.


Customizing the display of the Status entered by User custom field value

You can define a velocity template that will return the Html representation of the calculated custom field. Leave it empty to use the default template. 

To select a format for the Status entered by user custom field type value;

  1. Locate the custom field on the Custom Fields administration page.
  2. Click on the cog wheel and click on Configure
  3. Click on Edit Velocity Template.
  4. Input the template.
  5. Click on Save.

You can use the following Velocity variables in the template:

  • $value: the raw field value, the ApplicationUser object.
  • $formattedValuea String representing the display name of the user
  • and other variables described on this page

For example:

<div style="border: dashed">
  $formattedValue
</div>

displays the formatted value of the field with a dashed border.

Now you can control the display of the Status entered by user custom field on the transition and edit screens. If you select this option, the field will not be visible on the Edit and Transition screens, even if added to them.
