Jira error: "Remote error for 'create_feature': Data not accepted: customfield_xxxxx: Operation value must be a string"

You will get this error if you map a custom Aha! Roadmaps field to the field in Jira that is not supported. This is because it cannot be set through the Jira REST API (which is what Aha! Roadmaps uses).

Any fields in Jira that cannot be set by the Jira REST API will not be mapped through Aha! Roadmaps even though they may show up on the list of custom fields available for mapping.

For example, say you are trying to map a custom field in Aha! Roadmaps to the Jira sprint field. The sprint field is key to the operation of Jira. Changing the sprint affects a number of things. The Jira UI is able to display the sprint in a friendly way, but the Jira API does not support translating the internal representation into a form that is useful to external systems. Unfortunately, this means that Aha! Roadmaps (and other external systems) cannot include it in an integration.
