Team is just a label in Kendis. You don't have to link team to any custom fields etc in Jira. Linking between Jira and Kendis team is done by mapping it to Jira Scrum Board.
Following 3 things define Team in Kendis

  • Title: Full name of the team (e.g., Star Wars)

  • Label: Maximum 5 chars, it's kind of short name, e.g., (SW)

  • Color: Select the color of your team

How to Create and Edit Teams
