Jira data in reports


I would like to add some jira information to our reports (e.g. issue current status, priority, severity etc.). I know that there is possibility of custom report plugins but I think that smarter way is:

  1. add custom columns to report (persistent in db).
  2. create report
  3. run own job that fetch JIRA data to custom db fields (directly access to db).
  4. add button to report to update update JIRA data.

We use own TestRail instance, so that should be possible. It’s decent way? I just can’t imagine to add logic for fetching JIRA data directly to report plugin.

Question: how I can add persistent custom fields to report?

Thank you.
