Custom fields

When retrieving issues from JIRA via webhooks or Get Actions, basic sample data from the general JIRA installation is available. In order to get your custom fields, there must be at least one issue available in JIRA for Make to retrieve it and remember the custom fields. Once you run your scenario (or run a single JIRA module) the fields become available. These custom fields are available only on your computer as they are saved in your browser. If you access Make from another computer, you must repeat the process.
