You can flag an issue to indicate that it's important. The card of a flagged issue is displayed in yellow in the Scrum backlog, Active sprints of a Scrum board, Kanban backlog (if enabled), and Kanban board, with the 'flag' icon replacing the priority icon.
Flagging or unflagging an issue
Go to your board or backlog
Select an issue and click > Add flag
You can also add a comment when you're adding a flag to or removing a flag from an issue. You may want to do this to indicate your reason for adding or removing the flag.
Flagged issues are visible to all members of a project.
Searching for flagged issues
The flag for an issue is stored in a custom checkbox field called "Flagged", which has only one value: Impediment. Use the JQL query Flagged = Impediment to find flagged issues.
