Hello,

I'm using Mylyn 3.1.0 with the Jira connector to connect it to Jira
3.12.3. I met a problem using this plugin but i would like to make sure
first that it is a real bug.

Initially, I've created some customfields multi-select on Jira. Then I
created an issue on Jira filling in all the information including
mandatory customfields (multi-select and others) so that i could progress
my workflow with Mylyn (otherwise mandatory customfields won't be
displayed with mylyn and my submits will fail). After that, I go on
Eclipse and use mylyn to submit my issue to status "in progress".

First of all, I noticed that my customfields multi-select are represented
on Eclipse Mylyn by empty boxes. In fact, i've found later that it is a
bug reported on Eclipse Bugzilla.

The worst is coming : customfields multi-select are all repeated many
times ( more than 30 each) on the database. I checked it out with Jira and
with my dataviewer too, so I'm wondering if Mylyn does many inserts for
those fields and how !

is this a real bug? and is there any fix for it ?

i'm waiting for your answer ASAP !

thanks!

Please see this FAQ entry for information on custom field support:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Mylyn_FAQ#Are_custom_field s_supported_by_the_JIRA_connector.3F

Mylyn uses a standard post to the JIRA server to set values for custom
fields. Please file a bug report with steps to reproduce if you are
observing unexpected behaviour that is not covered in the FAQ entry.

I am using JIRA 3.13.5 and am having the same issue with with a custom field of type "multi checkboxes". We're using the JIRA connector version 3.2.0.v20090617-0100-e3x. Using the connector, it causes any of the checked items in the multi checkboxes field to get repeated 50 extra times (which do not display due to the connector's inability to render multi-select checkboxes and multi checkboxes). I have scanned through the Mylan JIRA connector issues here:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/buglist.cgi?query_format=advan ced;component=Jira;product=Mylyn but have not found any issues referencing this behavior. Any updates??
