Category:Custom fields
Target version:-
Resolution:Fixed Affected version:2.2.4


A custom field (checkbox) exists that is used in multiple projects. A custom query to look for all issues (cross-project) with the checked custom field should be performed. However, it seems that custom field filters do not work cross-project, unless the custom field is marked to be active for all projects.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Create a custom field and make it available in multiple projects. Check "Used as a filter".
  2. Create a custom query
  3. Try to add the custom field to the query. The custom field is not available in the "Add filter" dropdown.

Additional info: I don't think it's a privilege issue as I'm currently logged in as Administrator.

In Redmine 3.4 or later, custom fields that do not have "For All Projects" enabled are also included in the filter.
