DoIT Shared Tools - JIRA - Custom Fields

JIRA Delegated Project Admins can make minimal customizations to its delivered fields.

Please review this documentation from Atlassian to learn what changes you can make to JIRA projects using the Delegated Project Admin Plugin.

Special Considerations when adding a Custom Field

When adding a custom field, much consideration must be placed on the visibility of the custom field with:

  • Screens
  • Screen Schemes
  • Issue Types
  • Workflows

Important tips

  • Set the visibility of the custom field to be only for the project(s) that will use it - otherwise, it will show up for all users in screens like the bulk change of tasks logic.
  • Name the field to be related to its data or use (e.g. "Priority") rather than the project (e.g. "Bursar Priority") to allow for reuse by other JIRA users.
  • If a similar field already exists, please use it rather than creating a new one (even if the name is not identical) to keep field use manageable.
