Adding Custom Fields to JIRA’s “View Issue” screen. Seems like a straightforward task, right?
- Create a copy the default screen
- Add the fields you wish
- Associate the new screen with the ‘View issue’ action (in the appropriate Screen Scheme).
Then why I don’t see the custom field there?
The answer is: if the field does not have a value, it will not be displayed.
Probably the worst behavior they could choose for this case!
