You can use Power Custom Fields® to create that list of products off the hidden project, because Power Custom Fields® is grabbing data from the issues in Jira.

Using Power Scripts™ for Jira, if you sold a product, you could keep track of inventory, or if it’s a new product or customer information, Power Scripts™ for Jira could automatically create the issue (containing data such as product ID, description, shipping weight, inventory account) in the hidden project. You can use Power Scripts as needed to add/ update information in this project.
Alternatively, if you were storing customer information in Jira tickets, you could use Power Scripts™ to automatically link tickets together based on the customer activity, to see a history of the customer’s transactions.
