Good afternoon. First of all can I say that I'm really enjoying using YouTrack, as are the business.
We have a couple of external database "hooks" that I need to create which I imagine will have to utilise the REST API. Firstly, we have a small database held centrally for all of our company projects/programs which is used by various parts of the business. I'd like to have a custom field in youtrack with the values derived from the database. The field would not be project specific, so would be global to the system. How would this be achieved?
Secondly, and in a similar vein, JIRA used to have a plugin called "database custom fields" which would allow field values to be derived from external databases based on what was selected in another field. For example I might have a dropdown field with an asset ID which upon selection of a value ran a DB query to return the details of that asset to another field. How would this be acheived?
Look forward to your response.
