User created custom fields

This page explains how to access the value of User-created custom fields of different field types using Nunjucks. Each field's structure is explained, with examples. To understand how to write values into these fields see, Text input for fields and JSON input for fields.

It is now possible to access any user-created custom field of an issue by its Field name or ID. Click here to know how to find the ID of custom fields.

Example:

{{ issue.fields.Projectpicker.name }} and {{ issue.fields.customfield_10302.name }}, both return the name of the selected Project.

When the field name contains a space or any special character, you need to use the array syntax to access the field:

Example:

{{ issue.fields['Multi user picker'][0].displayName }}
