Add, edit, or remove field tabs from an issue type

You can arrange context fields in tabs to save space in the issue view. Tabs display the tab name and the first few fields in a tab. To add, edit, or remove field tabs, you need to edit the screen associated with the issue type.

Editing the screen of an issue type impacts all other issue types using that screen. As a result, this also affects every request type associated with an issue type whose screen was edited.

You must be a Jira admin to add, edit, or remove field tabs.

To add, edit, or remove field tabs from an issue type:

  1. From your service project, go to Project settings , and then Request types.

  2. Select the request type you want to update.

  3. Select Issue view.

  4. In the bottom right corner, select Make existing fields available.

  5. Select a tab, or select Add Tab to create a new one.

  6. Add or remove fields from the field tab, or select the cross icon to remove them.

  7. Go back to your request type and refresh the page.

Once you have tabs configured, they'll appear on the left side of any issue that uses that issue type.

If the lower-left of your service project sidebar says you're in a team-managed project, check out these team-managed project articles instead.
