You can customize the issue view to show more fields, hide fields, and rearrange the field layout.

tip/resting Created with Sketch.

To configure the layout of the new Jira issue view—which fields appear and the order they appear in—open an issue and choose Configure at the bottom-right. To find out more about configuring the issue layout, check out Configure field layout in the issue view.

Before you begin

To configure the board and any of its settings, you must be either:

  • project administrator for the location of the board
  • board administrator for the board itself

See Permissions overview for more information.

You can configure the fields to be displayed in the issue detail view on the board configuration screen. The values of some fields are also editable in the issue detail view.

Some fields, like Component and Labels, are always visible in the old issue view. This isn't the case for the the new issue view. For the new issue view, you need to add each field to the appropriate view screen for the issue type. Take a look at Defining a screen for more info.
