Other JIRA plugins

A common question is "can BigPcture read/display/sync data from <insert plugin name>". The answer is rather simple.

If the other plugin uses one of the supported JIRA custom field types (includes Scriptrunner), then you can add it as a column to our Gantt. Once added, you will be able to group and sort by values in this column. Such fields will always be green (non-JIRA). 

We are also working on robust integration with Deiser ProFields. Anything other than columns and ProFields is currently not available (Tempo, Structure, etc.).
