View/Edit Affected Version as Custom Field

I want to be able to view/edit the Affected Version/s field in my advanced roadmap plans. It's not there by default, so I added it as a Custom Field. When I selected the field from the list of available fields, is shows as "Supported". That is all good.

However, when I add that custom field to one of the views it does not show any values and the dropdown also does not have any values to select from.

I have done this same thing for other similar dropdown fields without issue.

Am I missing something or is this perhaps a bug with just that field?

Jira Version 8.1.0

Hi Peter:

The "Affected Version/s" field is pulling and using version values from the Fix Version/s as system default setup.  If you create a custom field, the field type has to be either Version Picker (multiple versions) or Version Picker (single version).

Only those two field types can associate the field with your project's version setup.  Also, you need to ensure that issues associated with the specific project that the project itself has created versions already.  Otherwise, if the project has no version(s) defined, then the custom field dropdown list will be empty.

Hope this helps.

Best, Joseph

If I understand you correctly, that is not my intention. I am fine with Fix Version/s being used for the Release values in the plan configuration.

My simply goal is to surface Affects Version/s as a field that I can show in the "Fields" when viewing the plan. I am clearly missing a step somewhere (or it's not possible).
