Create a read-only custom field in Aha which is only populated and subsequently amended by an integration mapping

Map a custom field (on any layout) to an issue field in Jira (for our purposes, other institutions will have different integrations) where the population of that field occurs in a single direction (Jira to Aha!). Once populated in Aha!, only the integration should have the ability to update it. This makes it read-only to the Aha user but amendable by the integration user. Perhaps this could be achieved with an additional choice in the mapping options (single direction, one-way edit)

    I hope it is understood that allowing the users to modify a field only to over-write their entry the next day is a poor design.  This can potentially cause confusion and does not take into consideration the possible impact on real time reporting.

    See APP-I-7145/. I just created a duplicate request.


Ability to mark fields as RO when their integration is one-way

Add the ability to mark custom fields as RO. For example, when pulling information from Jira, I want those fields in AHA to be un-modifiable. For example I want to know the Engineering Owner for a feature for once the EPIC is assigned I will get t...
