Location Text Custom Field

JSU for Jira Server/Data Center

This is the documentation of JSU for Jira Server/Data Center. If you are using JSU on Jira Cloud, you can find the documentation here.


The 'Location Text' custom field allows users to specifying address in free form text when creating/editing an issue. The location will be shown as an inline Google Map in the issue.


Configuring the Location Text custom field is no different to configuring any other JIRA custom field. For information on how to configure a custom field in JIRA, see the JIRA documentation.

As of June 22, 2016, Google Maps API no longer supports keyless access (any request that doesn't include an API key). Please create a valid API Key and configure under Administration → Tab: Apps, Section JIRA Suite Utilities / Configuration.  (Since Version 1.4.12 or 1.5.2)
