@PublicApi public interface


implements Field
Known Indirect Subclasses


This interface is designed for plugins to consume (call its methods).

Clients of @PublicApi can expect that programs compiled against a given version will remain binary compatible with later versions of the @PublicApi as per each product's API policy as long as the client does not implement/extend @PublicApi interfaces or classes (refer to each product's API policy for the exact guarantee---usually binary compatibility is guaranteed at least across minor versions).

Note: since @PublicApi interfaces and classes are not designed to be implemented or extended by clients, we may perform certain types of binary-incompatible changes to these classes and interfaces, but these will not affect well-behaved clients that do not extend/implement these types (in general, only classes and interfaces annotated with @PublicSpi are safe to extend/implement).

Public Methods

public SearchHandler createAssociatedSearchHandler ()

Return SearchHandler for the field. This object tells JIRA how to search for values within the field.

  • the SearchHandler associated with the field. Can return null when no searcher is associated with the field. This will mainly happen when a customfield is configured to have no searcher.
