Ability to set Aha field to a constant value as part of integration field mappings

My scenario is that I have each Aha product linked to multiple different projects in Team Foundation Server (TFS), and I want the features in Aha that come from TFS to have a field indicating what TFS project they came from. But I can’t find a way to set an Aha field to a constant value (or to the TFS project name) as part of the integration field mappings. I see a way to set a TFS field to a constant value, but not an Aha field. This seems like a strange omission in otherwise a really flexible and awesome integration. 

Currently the workaround involves creating a custom field in TFS, which is a pain because TFS is much more of a pain to customize than Aha, especially since we have a lot of TFS projects that we'd have to add the field to one by one.

    Certainly it is very painful to edit manually. Please enable this feature.

    I would like to be able to set a value in Aha to a constant like we can set values in TFS to a constant.  This seems quite basic, but what do I know?

    If I read the idea correctly, it seems like you also want to pick up some values from TFS, like project name.  I'm already integrating some attributes from TFS to Aha.  I created custom fields to store the values that I want and then map the corresponding fields from TFS within my integration using the TFS to Aha directional flow.  There could be an issue where the value you want from TFS is not available within integration settings, I suppose.  I'm currently bringing in Board Column and Interation Path, but I also see things like Team Project that I could be importing.

    I have a similar setup with a product across multiple Jira projects - I want to be able to set a custom field in Aha with a constant value per project/integration

    I arrived here trying to accomplish this as a workaround for not being able to use integrations as filters for reports and views.

    I agree, I think I have a potential-duplicate submission in AFPR-I-7552

    I have a similar setup with a product across multiple Github projects - I want to be able to set a custom field Component with a constant value per project/integration.

    I have a similar problem, in that I want to set a particular constant Type on all features created in Trello.
